Colton Joint Unified School District Reviews

This school district is infuriating. Their sense of purpose and mission to help students are ideally promising, but the methods taken to get there are problematic. The ill-designed faculty meetings discourage teachers from seriously listening to the "higher-ups" when the administration team doesn't give the same respect back to the teachers. There is a constant ignorance of school's requests and work orders when concerning extracurricular activities. The schools in this district focus towards education and refuses to hire teachers in the performing arts and stagecraft category. There needs to be more sense of a community and listening to the students and teachers.

The school is decent, it is heavily weighted by the negative safety reviews because the students tend to fight or bully each other almost daily. As for the teachers, they are extremely helpful, atleast 85% of the teachers help the students to love learning!
Diversity in the Colton Joint Unified School District, wasn't diverse at all. A high percentage of it was Hispanic/Latino and occasionally there were small race wars within the campuses, it didn't matter if it was middle school or high school. The academics were fine, they always tried to offer all the resources to succeed, that is something that you cannot deny. They had good intentions for their students, they tried to offer many clubs and activities, and create a school culture that was enjoyable and accepting of everyone. The food wasn't always great, but what school food was actually enjoyable? There was a huge support when it came to the those interested in STEM, those who didn't want to take that path also got college readiness, but there was always more help for those who were interested in STEM.
