Bakersfield City School District Reviews

Many students are falling behind in their studies. They are not given the proper attention or help they require. If the school district gets involved they could look for possible grants, maybe to hire more staff, such as tutors, substitute teachers. All of this could make a vast improvement in the performance of the students who've been failing their classes, while the school district does nothing to make any changes. We need teachers to become more involved. I believe doing this with the school districts help we can make a change for the better.

The Bakersfield City School District has overall been fairly well. The education is good and provides lots of diversity and resources where we are able to venture the different aspects of our school. Involvement with administration, activities and parents have progressed. The teachers seem to be wanting to be there to help students and are there to help us prepare for college. the diversity in our district is pretty well too, although it could progress, it is better than before. the satay in our school district is good too as we have many drills in every case that could happen.
The school district provides quality education and safety for children and young adults who attend Bakersfield schools. They also gives students the opportunity to prepare for the collegiate level. Those who choose to be athlete's are taught proper technique by coaches and trainers who are responsible for injury and illness protection and treatment and rehabilitation.
