Alvord Unified School District Reviews

I have been with the Alvord Unified School District for 12 years now. Throughout these years I have experienced the many teachers Alvord has and many of them amazing! They go out of their way to make sure students learn not only in the classroom but in life as well. Sadly, I'm upset that the district has recently spent a huge portion of their money on a newer and larger district office instead of its high schools. Other than its newest addition, Hillcrest High School, the other two high schools, La Sierra and Norte Vista, are quite old and very outdated. La Sierra was promised a new gym but never go it. It also does not have its own football field. Aside from that, many of our textbooks are now extremely old and hard to work with. To add, many of the electives once offered no longer exist at my school because of budget cuts.

The quality of the teachers was amazing you didn’t have to worry about having a bad day at school, teachers try to become close and help as much as they can. I cannot say the same about elementary teachers from my experience family and friends Alvord elementary teachers are always stricter and meaner and kids are always worried about punishments more than just the knowledge of knowing oh I have to do my homework today for the following reasons, to get smarter, to get the grade essentialtbthe good classes and good colleges.
I've attended Alvord Unified schools for 7 years now and I've enjoyed my time in school. There were few times where I've gotten teachers that weren't so good at their job, meaning, though they were nice people, they weren't very effective in their teaching abilities. Nonetheless, I have met many teachers throughout junior high and high school with whom I've kept relationships with and have taught me many things, not only academically, but things beneficial outside of the classroom and out in the real world.
