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.
East side union high school district offers many opportunities for different people and cultures. The schools are not average education and facilitical wise. One who does not have the financial means for some options the school or district offers. For eaxample if one did meet the requirements for reduced lunch, they would not only get free lunch. They would receive an immense price drop for Advance placement tests. From ninety four dollars to only five dollars. Some downsides to this district is that we lack money and the area the schools are in are not in safe areas. A demonstration would be Andrew Hill’s area. They had had many gang related activity. Thank you for reading my review.
