I am currently attending Chowchilla Union High School. During the COVID-19 pandemic, I have felt lost and somewhat abandoned by my educators, many of whom are AP educators. While some of my teachers were amazing and helpful and did their best to fully adapt to the new circumstances to continue learning as normally as possible, others did the bare minimum to continue teaching us. In some cases, the bare minimum of assigning book work did more harm than good, leaving students to teach themselves complicated theories on their own. Overall, however, I would rate my school as average.

I do not recommend allowing my children to come to this highschool, it’s very unorganized and unprofessional. There is limited electives which limits your ability to learn new things. This school has several policies that no one abides by and only has 3 good teachers that actually care about your student and if they are actually learning or not. All of the other teachers are very rude and hate their jobs. This year alone three teachers left.
Attending Chowchilla Union High School was a decent experience for me. I was an AP student who was in band for all four years of high school. The experience for someone with my interests was very good, I'd say. While my high school experience at Chowchilla Union High School wasn't perfect (for example, the cafeteria food was middling at best), it was wonderful compared to some horror stories I've heard.
