Calexico Unified School District Reviews

I've been a part of the Calexico Unified School District all twelve years of my school career, from K-12. The district offers free lunch meals for all students and waives many different fees for the high school students as well. As of right now, they are constructing new buildings for the high school. However, many things must change within the district. For example, the construction of the newest middle school, Enrique Camarena Jr. High has never been finished. The only building in the school in a small cafeteria that holds a max of about 70 people. The rest of the school is made up of trailers and is overcrowded. The high school is also extremely overcrowded with a total of almost 3,000 students attending. The education for students is average, and projects for the school are often postponed or finished years later than the set date. I enjoyed my time in school, but the quality could have been so much better and needs to be better for the future of the next generation.

Well, I enrolled into Calexico High School when I was in 9th grade and, ever since then, I have been having the best time of my life so far. The teachers here are really supportive and always try their best to get to know you and help you according to your needs. The best thing I have enjoyed from this school, however, is its hard-working and really creative welding class/club. I joined the class when I entered my junior year and I have had a great time there so far. I'm extremely intrigued by the process of welding because it fuses chemistry with on-hand work. The way that molten metal fuses two objects is because of a direct combustion reaction, of the electrode with the work-plate, that is caused by the chemicals in the electrode, these chemicals help speed up the combustion process. Overall, I have really enjoyed these past four years in my high school and I look forward to enhancing these experiences by attended my dream college U.C.S.D.
I have been part of this district since my first day of kindergarten. It has given me many opportunities and of course helped me be the student that I am today. Although this district is not considered "the best" in Imperial Valley, I consider this district great since it takes into consideration students' desires and allows our voices to be heard through the staff or board members.
