Fremont Unified School District Reviews

All Categories
The schools at FUSD are decent; the campuses are clean, the classrooms are fairly new, the courses provide many options for aspiring students, and the curriculum constantly broadens students while preparing them for life in adulthood. Furthermore, the teachers, administrators, and counselors prioritize the students and always encourage the students to pursue a successful career by emphasizing education, discipline, and core values. However, the do not pay the teachers well enough, and the teachers have insisted on not working unless they are paid. Teachers are no longer available to help students after school, and this is a problem that needs to be addressed.

I really love the teachers at my school district. They are all very kind and are extremely passionate about their job. They go out of their way by staying at school for multiple hours overtime to help out a struggling student. The school itself isn't that modern because it has to accommodate an enormous amount of students in comparison to other school districts. Also, the resources at my school (American High School) are quite limited. The laptops and other electronics that we use are about 8 years old. The same goes for most of the athletics at my school. The distribution of money in each sport is uneven. For example, if the basketball team gets $100 then the tennis team only gets around $25. Although the budgets at our school are very tight, everybody makes good use of what they have. The academics at our school are top notch and so are the athletics. We have so many valedictorians that it's not even considered a big achievement anymore. The student involvement also is very high.
The academics were top-notch; students are required to complete benchmark projects that involve heavy research, debate, and interaction with real-world professionals. However, the environment is very competitive and is conducive to mental health illnesses. The school is well aware of this, yet has one psychologist that is shared with two other schools. The district also refuses to increase teachers’ pay. They are forced to “work to rule” and often limits teachers’ accessibility to students. Our teachers are hard working and dedicated. They deserve a pay increase that reflects their success with the kids.
