    "Scheduling is easy, unless you need a certain AP class. They change the way kids get into the AP classes sometimes, so you never know if you'll get in. If you want to drop a class or change teachers, it's hard, and the guidance counselors can be nasty. Workload is heavy for advanced classes, and some require work during the summer before classes start."

    "Some teachers are great, but the teachers can be cliquish. The are a few horrible, mean teachers who have been around awhile. They shouldn't be in a classroom. There are also a few who are excellent and go far above what they need to do. Support and understanding for struggling students is non-existent, as the school really pushes AP classes and test scores."

    "Each year at Tesoro, there was a teacher that I will remember for the rest of my life. They care for you personally and support you academically. Although each teacher had a different style of teaching, they brought a diverse high-school experience and taught me something different by each personality they gave. Grading was always explained and mostly reasonable, and if the curriculum was difficult they would turn the teaching style into a fun and understandable way."

    "There are a lot of rich kids here. There are also a lot of pushy parents who will run over everyone else to get their kid into a certain class or extra credit to earn a better grade. It isn't a level playing field. Lots of kids have tutoring or test prep classes after school. Money talks."

    "Lots of peer pressure--and parental pressure, so kids cheat. Discipline for cheating varies from teacher to teacher, which is lame. You have to dress in trendy clothes from the right stores, unless you're really popular, then you can do whatever you want. Kids are bullied, and administration doesn't do much about it. The school doesn't offer anything extra, like the other district high schools do. Other schools have such classes/programs as auto shop, IB program, culinary program, and arts academy."
