There isn't anything too special about TCHS, from the past 3 years that I have attended it seems like most other schools. Crime and bullying isn't an issue, since the principles take that kind of stuff very seriously. The teachers are usually nice, but some seem to not care if students start to fail. Overall it is a decent school.
