The teachers seem to really care whether or not you feel confident in what you’re learning. Sometimes we get caught up in the grades and points but our teachers remind us that it’s more about whether or not we are learning the material. Also, the school environment is just wonderful. We have sports, arts, and clubs with coaches or mentors that help guide us to better our selves while doing what we love!

I very much enjoy my experience at my school district. Typically, when younger children think of high school, their minds are plagued with stereotypical ideas of the popular kids, cliques, bullying, and other negative ideas of school. This school district, however, feels much different. There is great diversity among friend groups and the schools as a whole. The teachers are all very welcoming and understanding. As a whole, it is a very open and welcomed environment.
The Escondido Union High School District has directed the Escondido schools in a positive direction. Staff at San Pasqual High School, the school I attend, are great motivators for students who want to pursue a higher education. The teachers are well involved in student participation and providing a safe environment to learn. What I would like the district to do is have the administrators participate with students and teachers so they can have a better understanding of the impacts they can have on a school environment
