My experience so far has been mostly positive. Recently however there has been issues with the math classes switching to online tests that the district creates, so what the teachers taught did not match the tests. Let’s just say it was an extremely hard year in our integrated math classes. Overall however, I have had an amazing experience in this district all the staff I’ve interacted with has been for the most part approachable, and you can definitely tell they have your best interest at heart. I feel prepared for my future!

Fontana Unified School District as a whole is actually pretty great. My school specifically is seen as one of the top schools, and all the teachers and administration, as well as students are to thank. The school and the district are always promoting activities and spirit week and ways to get involved and the change the culture. The district is always looking for the students voices and what we see should change. With online learning things are different and constantly changing. The district is doing its best to be able to help all the schools with free meals and listening to the students what the workload and activities we wish to still have even through a pandemic. I’d say that the school is seen very different from outsiders and even before I went to my high school. I am able to really see everything that’s going on and I can see the school and the district getting better everyday and every year there’s something new to work on.
I do not like much about this school district besides the fact that we only pay $5 for each AP test. Other than that, there's not much to compliment on. For my high school specifically, Summit High School, the staff is incompetent and it is rare to find a teacher or staff member that enjoys their job. This means that the passion for teaching is scarily lacking in almost all of the staff, which makes the students even more lazy. The staff is also horrible at handling any sexual assault cases. If a boy gropes a female student, the female is simply told that they shouldn't have worn such clothing and that they should look out more. This is clear sexism that has never been addressed within the school and is still adopted/accepted by almost every school. There is also a lack of funding towards the art and science related clubs and classes. These teachers end up having to pay for supplies and productions while the school just paid for a new gym floor. Overall, not a great school district.
