Capistrano Unified School District Reviews
In Capistrano Unified School District especially in my past few years in high school, I have had several opportunities to explore my interests for college through in-school classes, through my counselors, and through outside of school potential opportunities provided for several fields to be further explored after high school. The administration is very organized and responsive to needs for change or alteration, and I am very satisfied with my time here! Teachers in all subject areas are extremely educated and qualified, excited to assist even after class in any aspect.
Capistrano Unified provided me with amazing opportunities for growth in both my academics and music. I was able to participate in both band and orchestra. We performed in concerts at Segerstrom Center! Academically speaking, the curriculum was challenging and required me to apply my knowledge to real world problems. The best part of my educational opportunities was getting to take a course in forensic science which has inspired me to pursue a career in forensics.
Capistrano Unified School District has the best schools around. When I look at the schools in my district I see the same great things. Students are able to complete their academic success with the help of every administrator. The environment is so pleasing. Throughout my experience, I have never once felt unsafe or at a disadvantage to my learning experience. The schools put an effort into making the school safe, bully-free, friendly, accepting and beneficial to the students. The distance learning process due to the COVID-19 outbreak has converted us to online courses and it has been tough on all of us. CUSD has been there for the teachers, administration, students and their families. Through this tuff time, the district has had everyone's back. I appreciate everything the school district has done for me. If I could change one thing it would have to be the traffic situations with coming to and leaving school. That would be my only doubt to The Capistrano Unified School District.
