I had an alright experience here, but I feel like counselors wait until the last minute to get their students ready for college. Sports are great, but good luck getting into the team if you are a beginner or intermediate because it’s very competitive. There are simply so many students! In the other hand, the campus clubs are a great way to meet new people and have new experiences. I would just recommend you to get involved because otherwise leadership positions will get taken by the popular people.

Turlock High School has a great atmosphere that is fostered and provided by the teachers and other staff. While not particularly diverse, there are still many resources for many students. If something had to be changed it would be student involvement, which has been lacking in recent years. That being said, some students are working hard to make this change, by promoting newer clubs, and rewarding students and classes that are active in school related activities.
My experience at Turlock High School these past four years of my life, have been nothing but amazing. I met a lot of new friends that I would've never imagined meeting. I also had the opportunity to be involved in sport activities such as in the volleyball and varsity girls tennis team, which have made me realize the importance of working with others. I am so thankful to have obtained my high school education at Turlock High School. There are so many hardworking, generous and helpful teachers that have impacted my journey in various ways. In general, the whole staff members have been supportive in trying to make us all successful for our future needs and for that I am grateful for. One thing that I would change from Turlock High School is incorporating more programs such as driver aid classes and helping students with job opportunities.
