Campbell Union High School District Reviews

I have been under the district for more than 3 years now. I think overall the district tries to do a good job with preparing high school students for college. I like how they focus on challenging students but I don’t like the fact that there are students who really feel challenged by it. They should provide different level classes in math, so that kids learn with their pace. I do enjoy the clubs and the emphasis on being involved with school. I started to join clubs and the fact that the principle cares about making clubs noticed and trying to get them to participate in events gave me a good impression. I think most of the teachers are good, except for some in the math department. My current teacher makes mistakes almost everyday and that is not good. I am trying to learn but that makes it hard.

Campbell Union High School District drastically improved during my time there. At first, the administration was ineffective, buildings were run-down, and teachers lacked rapport with principal and administration. However, the district made changes to get students, teachers, and administration more involved and working together more cohesively that made for a pleasurable high school experience.
The 2017-2018 school year will be my 4th and last school year at Del Mar High School which is in the Campbell Union High School District. CUHSD is a very diverse district with people from all over Santa Clara county and all have many different personalities, and talents and I have made many good friends in my 3 years that I have been here. The best department in my high school is our History/Social Sciences department which provides excellent critical thinking and college readiness skills to all who take the courses offered. Other departments that also help prepare students by teaching them the correct material is the English and Science departments which have good funding and have experienced teachers who are always actively helping students with their work and to also help prepare for higher education. The departments that need to be improved are math and arts as the staff needs improvement.
