East Side Union High School District Reviews

The teachers are humorous, excellent, inspirational, bubbly, and much more! The environment is pretty decent because I can get a high-quality education from teachers who truly care and are passionate about their job. They work hard to ensure their students get a quality education so that they are prepared for college and the world.
However, the district can improve on advice for dealing with stress and suicide prevention.
The food is pretty decent, but there is not much change about it.
Music and talent should also be more encouraged because the system revolving around education in the arts is not sufficiently populated.
School activities are fun and engaging because school morale is quite high.
School counseling is pretty average, and it doesn't quite help as much.
The resources provided are sufficient enough for student success.

The district office doesn't equally distribute money among the high schools in the district. Schools that deserve the money for better facilities or resources do not get the money, and that money instead goes to lower performing (in academics and sports) schools. However, I still really love and care about my school. I believe because of some challenges, such as the funding distributing or cutting some classes that students actually need, the district gives my school only got better. Most teachers at my school are great because they give full support to their students. Not to mention, students are even more motivated and become involved in taking their education into their own hands.
To start off the East Union High School District is not perfect. They have made me work through a teacher strike known as "work to rule" and construction. The strike not only limits the time students have to talk to teachers ,but it also puts a students success at risk. The construction is another thing it is a distraction at school. Not only is it loud it also makes it harder to get to class on time. However, I'd like to thank the district for supporting diversity in schools. Whether your Mexican, Asian, African-American there's a club for you!!! If there isn't a club with your "kind" the school let's you create your own. That way no one feels left out.
