Central Unified School District Reviews

Central Unified is not a bad district, my elementary and middle school years were great! Being a high school student in Central Unified was terrible though. The teachers ignored me when I told them I was being bullied online, they picked favorites and ignored other students. The FFA program was very judgemental and tore down my self esteem rather than building it up.

I have been in the Central Unified School District since 2nd grade and I love it. The admin, teachers, and fellow students have become such great friends and family to me. Compared to other districts in the area, Central is relatively successful in their activities but is not extremely competitive. Therefore, it’s easy for one student to stand out within their peers. The one thing that takes away from the district is the current conflict happening with our board and the changes they are striving to make which many Central families have spoken up against.
I've been in the Central Unified District since I was in Kindergarten. A lot of the teachers there have had a significant impact on my life! For instance, I wouldn't have gotten interested in Musical Theatre if it weren't for my 3rd grade teacher. I also wouldn't have gotten a near perfect score on my English SBAC if it weren't for how well my 7th grade English teacher prepared me!
