Central Union High School District Reviews

Central Union High School. Very Good school. School officials try their best to make each student feel comfortable and most important, help them to understand.The word "sparta" is an acronym for the school's learning goals for students. Each letter represents a goal for the student as well as for the teacher, to help students. Not only that, but whenever a student needs help, teachers or other people on campus, are willing to help without complains.

Teachers are accessible for changes to their own schedule, meaning, even if they have to leave, a student needs them, and they will try their best to stay.. If the teacher itself cannot be there when the students needs him/her, there’s always tutors available and that work together with teachers, knowing their plan.

Although its a good school, not all students get involved in the activities ASB sometimes makes during lunch. I think the school needs more spirit, more ways to get everyone involved, different activities.

I like how the high school district here is Unified throught the entire Imperial Valley. This is consisting of 2 different high schools under the same district. I like how supportive the schools are to thier students, providing many opportunties to make a successful college life. I have been provided with very good opportunities and fun programs in order to make a secure and prosperic future in my life. I would like to see more attention to social problems that the students may have. This may be drama, Bullying, Deppression, Drug addiction, and self- harm. This can be by providing a school psychologist that the students can feel safe talking to.
Central Union High School district isn't just another ordinary school district, it one of the best school districts there is. For instance, the school that I go to that is a part of the district is a school named Southwest High School and it is just unique because in this school there isn't just the common core classes but there are different classes such as culinary arts, Spanish , French, agriculture, and a dance performance team named Savap.
