Central Union High School District Reviews
I liked that there are opportunities for students to pursue higher education such as Advance Placement classes and the International Baccalaureate program. There are many clubs, activities, and sports to join but I wish they would get the same attention as some sports (such as football) get. Most of the recognition and support goes to sports, mainly football, which mostly means that the fundings goes to football instead of also going to other activities such as orchestra. Many students can not afford their own instruments and it would be beneficial to also use some of the fundings there are for the orchestra program.
Central Union High School is decent. It's not horrible, but it's not great either. Most teachers do not prioritize students and their education, it seems they're amused by the small amount of power they have. This is not all teachers, but most. There is hardly any genuine connection which discourages students. As for the school itself, the environment is very prison-like. There is hardly any color, everything is dull and old. There are no trees because they cut most of them down and it just looks really sad. The food is horrible, school starts too early, and lunch is too short. The library is cool though. Though every school is not perfect, it doesn't mean CUHS can't vastly improve.
My experience at Central Union High School has been “average” like stated above due to the following reasons: the academics are poor, teachers don’t have much involvement, we don’t have many classes to choose from. These reasons have made my involvement in Central Union High School average. I wish there would be more choices of classes to choose from, have teachers with my culture backgrounds and/or actually have a good or somewhat interested involvement with students
