TCHS is the best! I love my school because of all the opportunities it has brought to me! I have been able to get involved to club activities, volunteer projects, and meet so many friends! In a school as big as TC it is sometimes hard to find a close group of friends. When I moved to TC I knew that it was going to be scary but so many nice people were right there to help me out. As an ambassador, I hope I could help people in the same way. I was awarded Miss Citizenship by my teachers which gave me an even better platform to reach out to people in my community who needed help. My teachers were amazing all four years, I have nothing less to say than, AMAZING. TC teachers truly care about their students and want the best for them academically. There were many days where I was able to go into class early or stay late for extra help, email/text late at night for homework advice, and honestly to call anytime I need them. I can say with absolute confidence, my experience at TC was amazing!

TCHS is a great environment for students like myself to learn, grow, and achieve. TCHS has something for everyone. They offer a multitude of different AP classes, sports teams from swimming all they way golf, and have lots of clubs and opportunities to get involved after school! The size of the school is perfect it is big enough that it easy to find friends with similar interests but not too big to where you feel like just another student!
The best thing i loved about County High, is the atmosphere! People are so welcoming and the environment is just clean. We have amazing teachers who go out of there way to make student’s education easier and simpler to understand.
