Upon learning about the various classes, clubs, sports, and opportunities that are offered at Tulare Union I have experienced and grown so much. Becoming involved in cross country, Fellowship of Christian Athletes, Senior Class, art classes, Advanced Placement classes, an internship, and several other groups, I have had the opportunity to build relationships with such a wide range of students on my campus. One aspect of education that Tulare Union does best is allowing students the chance to interact with peers through the numerous outlets offered.
Despite the effort the school makes to encourage involvement, a large part of the student population continues to ignore these rewards. If the entire campus was bought into these programs, the impact would go farther than our campus, extending into the community. Through simply requiring extra involvement or reaching out to students, the staff at Tulare Union would inspire this unmotivated population to grow as well.

The experience at Tulare Union has made me think and look of school in a different way. The transition from Middle school to High school has made a big change. There is a diverse of people and cultures and makes the experience better and quite interesting. Something to change will be the involvement of clubs. They are not really good at keeping track of anything. The students that are being involved need more in depth information to be involved. This year, it has not been the best year from the three years I have been at Tulare Union. The construction has made it difficult to get to class on time. This will change but overall the school like to have school spirt but still needs to work on getting organized.
My experience here at Tulare Union is one my parents have made me excited for ever since I was in elementary school and they were right. My time in Union for my time in high school has been a great time before going to college, starting as a freshman I was scared that it would be too much for myself but I soon realized that Union was full of opportunities to try new things. Over the years many extracurriculars, such as band, Cyberquest, tennis, and CSF have given me many events to travel and meet new people. Besides clubs and activities, I have been able to also become friends with my teachers, learn more about the college, and access the resources the school gives the teachers to use to educate their students even more than the other schools in town. what l love most is despite some favorites in sports, the close culture the school has for pride and its students as we pride on our sports and grades that allow us to earn more than any other school regardless of money or population.
