I’ve been in the amphitheater district all my years of schooling, it has been an experience to say the least. I went to Lulu Walker Elementary which I loved up until about the 5th grade, where I was accused of bullying younger kids. In middle school, at la cima I loved it. Has a great AVID Program. But some of the teachers would choose favorites, but I do remember learned the most at that school all the teachers were great at their jobs!! Now as a senior at Canyon Del Oro, I feel like I’ve had my share of good and bad teachers. Most of them were at this school, all my science teachers seemed to be horrible!!! Especially physics, but overall the environment was super inviting and I’m excited for my little brother to go there as a freshman.

I have gone to school in Amphitheater public schools all of my years but one. In my younger years at Harelson Elementary School I had the best, most caring teachers, a great learning experience, and some unforgettable friends. Cross Middle School was different, I felt the teachers didn't care, the classes were out of control, students behaved poorly, and there was no sense of community. When I finally graduated eighth grade and went to Canyon Del Oro High School my experiences were similar. People were doing bad stuff all over campus, my first day freshman year I remember seeing my first fight right next to me. People were mean, teachers weren't helpful and I didn't learn a thing. Overall my high school experience was terrible and I felt like the whole thing was pointless.
In the Amphi District, the are several cultures and a talented group of teachers and students. The staff and students in this district are respectful, polite, hardworking and strive for the best. The Amphi district also provides a variety of extra-curricular articular activities to its students which helps them have a full High school experience. Furthermore, the Amphitheater Unified School District is a culture based community that provides several academic and non-academic activities to its students and staff.
