I had a great time at Clovis high school all 4 of my high school years! It was an amazing experience I'll never forget, I will say the education was fair but could use some improvements and make resources more accessible for students. Althought the resources were there, they were often difficult to reach at home, simply because signing in from home required a special computer program that isn't available at home.The diversity is there, but not really different and I'm a multi-ethnic student and I still didn't find the group of people that I could relate to ethnically.Now for the sports, they are very good sports programs, lots of talent and great coaching, the only problem is that in certain fall sports there's bias on coaching due to connections with coaches, last names,and for those who put extra money into the programs.And its appreciated that parents would do that, but play time should be earned and based on skill not who puts in the most money, which is a sad thing to see.

Clovis Unified School District exceeded my expectations. Their facility and administration are responsible and dependable. In situations and in times of need, the district staff takes accountability to make sure every student is getting the education they need. The district provides a variety of sports and artistic opportunities and encourages everyone to branch out and get involved. One improvement I would suggest is diversity. I believe that schools should celebrate diversity more. Students should be able to embrace their ethnicity and culture in a school environment. If the district strives to acknowledge and educate students on diversity, we would be much closer to a better community.
Within the district, there is a questionable disparity between what some schools are guaranteed. For example, this recent, during the COVID crisis, some high schools let their students keep their grades from before the pandemic while students from other high schools in the district were not. Moreover, that same school allows for students to make up work from the previous school year to boost their grade while this is seemingly unheard of with other schools. In addition, this district seemed to neglect that many students within in it are at a low socio-economic status, so their hesitance to cancel homework like other neighboring districts, like Fresno Unified, was in poor taste and neglected those students who struggled with the technological necessity of online learning. Furthermore, it seems the district struggles with condemning racist behavior as there seems to be a new scandal from different schools each year. This overall is not a bad district, but there is need for improvement.
