Dysart Unified School District Reviews

Attending schools in the Dysart district I’ve been surrounded be really good teachers with the drive for cultivating students minds into college and career ready adults. However, despite this fact I’ve felt that the District has not really done many things for students who have excelled academically. I’ve seen that students are praised for being in sports and clubs. However, those who excelled academically are left in the dust despite the fact those students are responsible for the A or B average their school obtains.

My experience with the Dysart Unified School Dystrict is coming to an end. I have spent the past couples years throughout elementary school and high school in this district, and now it’s coking to an end. As I am reaching the last months of high school, I am able to reflect on this district. I experienced many friendships and activities throughout the years that will indefinitely follow me throughout life. I have made lasting friendships and learned about myself while growing not only as a student, but also an individual. However if I could change one thing about the Dusart Unified School District, it would be to challenge me more. I feel I have been given basic, generalized concepts that have not given me a challenge I need to grow in my education. I do not feel prepared in my knowledge and education enough to go into college with strong habits and knowledge needed
The district is very limiting on student opportunities. As well as not really giving the students a chance to learn about how to do things in the future. There was no explaination on how to apply for student loans or scholarships or any of that basic information they just kind of told us to do it. Also they are kind of rude and don’t exactly treat the students like adults, I feel like a five year old every time i walk onto that campus. The students are actually pretty violent as well and the teachers do not always do something, sometimes very scary. The teachers are very nice though some treat us like we have no brain. They know what they are teaching and want the best for us, but follow a very strict curriculum for the year. Otherwise it’s great, the electives and extra curriculars are fun, and have helped me grow as a person. I recommend show choir. They have won many competitions with a massive two hundred strong family that everyone is welcome.
