Fremont Unified School District Reviews

The education at my school is pretty good. My school is mostly academic-based rather than sports, which absolutely helps us prepare for college. Although, I feel rather lonely because our school is very competitive. Sometimes when I walk to my different classrooms, I hear students ask, "How's the quiz like?" or etc. It kind of frustrates me since I'm one of those kids that don't achieve the highest grades overall. The thing I really enjoy at my school is the sports teams since it's the only time I get to see other people talk other than academics. Teachers are 100% there for you too, but last year our teachers went on a strike or a thing called "Work to Rule" because the district wasn't giving them a big raise. Teachers were forced to hold onto letters of recommendation, which had greatly impacted my year since I'm graduating this year. Safety is debatable. My school is quite safe, yet there are other schools in my district that I'd known gotten into fights and so.

Although it provides a standard curriculum and is within a considerably "well" school district, it lacks the integral part of promoting students to truly think for themselves. There is a competitive atmosphere within the school which alleviates attention from creativity and curiosity and creates a hyper focused scrutiny over tedious work and superficial constructs in class. Only a couple of teachers are unique in their education, but most lean towards to rules and standards set by the school board, unwilling to change or venture further into innovative ideas. Education is forever changing in relation to the newest discoveries, be it science, mathematics, or philosophy. I do not believe that the Fremont school district is preparing students for life. By continuous imposition of competitive education over us, there will only be a failed generation that mechanically follows instructions rather than inspire new technologies and political progress for the future.
The Fremont Unified School District is very diverse, not only in the sense of ethnicity but also economically. There are pockets of Fremont that are wealthier than others and the district lines are good about blending the economic and societal status. When picking the environment to influence the crucial development period of your child's character, I personally believe that public school has the humbling and more reality based environment. Despite receiving more money through tuition or funding, the student has the ability to choose to do well in the environment given.
