Amador County Unified School District Reviews
The teachers here are very dedicated to providing their students with a good education and a strong understanding of what they are being taught. They are supportive and encouraging and they create a fantastic atmosphere for learning. However, there are not enough teachers; as a student in my last year of high school wanting to take Physics, I have to attend this science class at a different high school. Similarly, students from Argonaut drove over here to Amador for Chemistry last year. This is a problem, as not all students can get transportation in the middle of the school day, and it's sad that some are deprived of learning in new areas due to lack of staff.
Over the past 13 years I've been to 3 different schools in the district and they're all the same; old, unsafe, and falling apart. The schools are out dated and at most moments I'm afraid a ceiling tile is going to fall on top of my head. However, one of the best things about the school district is the arts programs. Most of these programs exist because of our county arts council who does wonderful work for the community. And although these programs all need way more funding, the arts are alive and well. Even the falling ceiling tiles won't stop us.
ACUSD certainly has great character and spirit -- it's almost like its own special community. The sports games are always fun to attend. However, there aren't very many classes and electives to choose from.
