Alameda Unified School District Reviews

The school district itself is so uncaring of the schools in the area and the hundreds of students that occupy them. Making change happen in this area is so hard for the students because despite the efforts to change through protest and meetings with the school board, ultimately the adults send a message to the students that they are the leaders of our society and they have the ultimate say in the decisions that will affect the growth of students in their care. In these type of situation, the only real way to redeem the integrity of the school district is through the amazing teachers that work too hard and are paid too little to ensure that the students get the education and resources they need to grow into mature adults. But even after awhile, most teachers lose their motivation and soon follow into the same uncaring system that the school district has forces upon them.

I’m a student within the Alameda Unified School District. I have been going to school here ever since kindergarten at Amelia Earhart Elementary School. After attending Earhart for six years, I went into Lincoln Middle School for all three years. Currently, I am about to enter Alameda High School as a freshmen. Throughout my nine years here, the teachers have been very kind and continuously push each and every one of their students to do their very best.
Alameda Unified District has helped its students in many ways. As a student in the AUSD school system for 11 years, I have always had great teachers and held to high expectations and exceeded them due to the great staff. Although the education system is terrific, the school district could do more to address discrimination and hate speech among their high schools by being direct. With a diverse community of students, AUSD should be much more straightforward in addressing hate speech found at their schools and not shy away from it or simply send letters and voicemails home. They should also keep families updated on what the consequences of those who caused them will be.
