Very diverse and safe enviroment! I'm a current senior attending Temple City High School and have lived here from 7th grade to Junior year. The education here is top-notch, with very supportive staff and helpful resources. In addition, it is very safe here. Being a small city, everything is within walking distance, with food, entertainment, and education being a few minutes walk to a few minutes drive.

Temple City has a great community of people, overall, and a good high school. It can get extremely hot during the summer, but winter and fall are great! I live close to many delicious restaurants and shops, and small town festivals often occur in the park and school nearby. Temple City is great!
Temple City is a safe community located in the suburbs. Most of the population consists of Asians. The houses have aesthetic exteriors as well as interiors however, housing is more on the expensive side. The schools here provide a good learning environment for children. The parks have playgrounds, courts, and grass land available for all. There is plenty of restaurants and fast food places nearby and it is easy to commute due to the less busy streets.
