Escondido Union High School District Reviews

I'm an accomplished student from San Pasqual High School in Escondido, which is by far the very best high school in the district, so my opinion stands alone for San Pasqual. Over the course of 4 years at San Pasqual students have the ability to partake in around 30 different on campus clubs, multiple division 1 or 2 sports including football and mens volleyball, both of which I played, and take, in my opinion, the very best classes with amazing teachers. There are over 20 different AP classes offered at SP, and I've taken a total of 12. As MVP of the Varsity football team in the 2017-18 season and Team Captain and leader of the men's volleyball team, I can assure that our coaches and players here are a passionate, inseparable family that is very close.

The schools in this district were not concerned with the well-beings of the students. The school I went to was not at all diverse, and it was very difficult to find people like me around school which often times made me feel alone and separated. Although the administration on campus were not very involved with the student body, there were some teachers and staff that did come across as caring about how they affected their students. School atmosphere was okay, I didn't care too much for the academics at the school, other than a few of the teachers.
Escondido High has been a very positive experience due to the FFA program that the school has to offer, with the on site school farm I was able to incorporate real life experiences, with raising livestock for the past 4 years I learned time management, how to manage expenses, record keeping and how to bring the community aware of our school produce market. I will truly look back on Escondido Union High School District with admiration for the efforts they take to keep this program in place.
