Central Unified School District Reviews
Central Unified is a very good school district. Overall, staff and campuses were good, but individually, they need some work. Some sites were not well maintained and require more resources to be cared for. Teachers are good, they do need to work on their hiring practices. A difference in elementary education standards result in middle school students being left behind. A universal standard that is enforced district wide can ensure that each student has equal opportunity to succeed. Outside of schools, more community involvement would do some good. A good education starts with a good Homelife and community. By incorporating more community programs, Central Unified could be outstanding. Distribution of funds to their education sites can boost moral and attendance. Safety has been recently increased, but still has a long way to go. While Central Unified is not amazing yet, increased funding and programs can further improve the school district.
Central Unified has given me, an immigrant from India, the opportunity to succeed. My AP Biology teacher would talk about how we can cure certain diseases such as HIV, Alzheimer's and the process of aging itself. Since then, I have been researching how epigenetics and environmental factors can affect the structure and the connection of the brain. I came to the united states during my 8th-grade years, and when I started high school, I barely knew any English. I would really participate in any extracurricular activities and often stayed home. I would shy away from talking to people because of my accent. However, my English teacher throughout my high school years helped me become confident and find my own way of understanding literature. Since then, I have challenged myself to understand and learn different and complex literature. I
Honestly my first year at central unified school district I was very nervous, I didn't really have a lot of friends in my freshman at central east campus high school. My first semester I was doing really bad in my earth science and my intro business class I tired to seek help but since I wasn't very social I tended to not receive the help that my teachers has offered me. But then when second semester came I started to open up a little more towards my teacher not only that I also started to make a few friends in my earth science classes and I was more focused in those two classes my second in my last semester. For my sophomore it wasn't anything special I just focused on my classes that school year. But for my junior I did wanted to challenge myself and take Ap US History and it wasn't that bad but sadly i didn't pass the AP exam which I wasn't really worrying about. But overall the teachers I had for those past three years were really great and now I'm currently a senior.
