Fremont Unified School District Reviews

I transferred to FUSD at the start of my freshman at American High School. In comparison to the wealthy school district I attended school in before, FUSD is noticeably inferior at first glance. The campus and classrooms are old and crowded, and the bathrooms are ill-maintained. Other than the inferior facility, the faculties at FUSD are decent. Most teacher I've had in the past four years are knowledgable and kind, and some counselors are caring and always down to help students.

I attend the Fremont Unified School District my entire life and I loved all of it. Since kindergarten, I've learned about basically everything I know now due to my amazing teachers and staff that take care of us. I've gone through the entirety of my school career with some of my friends and we've seen each other grow. I've had so much fun with participating in activities that made me grow as a person and a learner. I'll always be thankful for having them find me life long friends and teaching me all that it did besides what happens in class.
The academic programs were outstanding. However, they do not fully prepare students for college and/or real life therefore many graduates have no idea what to do afterward. The AP courses help introduce college level courses but not a lot of kids take AP classes due to their own personal reasons. Also there seems to be an influx of kids who are introduced to alcohol or drugs while on campus. I feel that schools should take more precautions in order to prevent possible suspensions, gang related violence, or negative influences.
