Review Catalina Foothills Unified School District
I like this school district a lot, but I believe that it is too easy. Teachers want students to get As, even with minimal work. That said, I have had a fair amount of tough teachers who know their stuff and are very helpful in pushing me to success. In general, I think that we spend too much money on useless things (such as new computers were the last ones were barely even a few years old, or iPods) and on sports instead of the arts or even offering more academic opportunities.
The teachers at every level are amazing. They truly care about the students and their success. I feel like it doesn't just stop at the teachers. The administration is accessible. You can talk to them if you need to and they care about each individual student and everything that happens on campus.
