Fresno Unified School District Reviews

Ever since the summer after middle school graduation I've been trying to adapt myself to Fresno High School in as many ways as possible. Taking freshman prep courses and playing in summer volleyball conditioning really helped myself become acquainted with my new campus and fellow students. So far, I'm just halfway through my first year here-it's been an amazing experience! Participating in multiple clubs, a play, and sports team all while maintaining honor roll has kept me busy, but I've loved every second of it! Well, almost every second- the long lunch lines for mediocre food, aggravating teachers, and tedious assignments I could do without. Yet it's all worth it, for I know that at the end of the day I am proud to be a Fresno High Warrior!
Review Fresno Unified School District
Growing up and attending schools within the Fresno Unified School District was for the most part pleasant, but their are things that need to be changed. Within the classrooms we need teachers who are trained to teach a lesson various of ways because not every student learns the curriculum the way another does. They should also readjust how the handle students with behavioral problems. The district also needs to focus on budgeting funds better. There shouldn't be a reason why one program is favored over another due to popularity. For example, the arts program (whether that be music, theatre, dance, art) should not suffer just because Friday night football games are more appealing. The district also needs to maintain a more sanitary environment for students on campus.
The Fresno Unified School District is a unique compared to many other school districts. They allow students to expand their ability not only academically, but athletic wise as well. My schools Robotics team (i was in) won Central Valley Regionals in 2016, another near by high school, Mclane high school, soccer team won Central Valley Championship 2016 as well as Bullard High Girls Central Valley Championship 2017. Although we are given opportunities that allow us to push ourselves, the district does hold us back from expressing ourselves and using our individuality to find ourselves, like strict dress code, which is something i would change.
