I believe Topeka High is a very good high school. I have seen teachers really wanting to help students reach their goals and the students really want to succeed.I loved the courses I have taken for the school and I truly felt safe and secure in the environment. I see Topeka High as a school of great success,pride, and honor in making dreams really come true. I think if a student hated high school that this school would change that feeling!
Review Topeka High School
I absolutely loved going to Topeka High school! Like many of my family members, I spent all four of my high school years at Topeka High. The culture, traditions and diversity are just a few of the characteristics that make Topeka High School stand out!
I absolutely loved Topeka High. I had so much fun! I learned a lot as a student and a person. When I went back to visit I do think the front desk is too strict with alumni that come back to visit. The teachers are great, there are so many opportunities to do new things and much more! I wish I was staying to send my own kids there in the future.
