Tulare Western has always been seen as the butt of high schools in the district, but the people who believe that have never been a part of our school. The teachers on campus are amazing, each of them are special in their own way. These teachers create very special relationships with every one of their students to make sure that when they are learning, that it is to the best of their ability. School pride is one thing that no one can do better than Western. At lunch there are school activities and dress up days, and more times than not you will see almost everyone dressed up! On the academic side of things, I personally believe it is great. When I am having difficulty in class I feel comfortable to address my problems and them talk them over to ensure that I pass. Every part of Tulare Western is incredible, and I am proud to be a Mustang!

Tulare Western is a great school! There's tons of activities for all students to get involved in and to participate in :) As well as with the teachers, they are very welcoming if help is needed, their rooms are open for you to discuss topics that are difficult to you and need a better understanding with.
My high school experience has been pretty good so far! Tulare Western's campus is very welcoming to everyone, so everyone feels included throughout their high school experience.
