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!

I have been in the Fresno Unified School District for about 8 years now and I have seen many school sites go through development to offer better facilities to students and promote a diverse school culture. In addition, certain buses include internet, therefore it allows students to work on homework right on their phones. Hence, technological use is encouraged in our education. The district also takes into consideration the voices of the students. For example, in the past I completed a survey about what type of facility I believed was needed to built at my school. Furthermore, students have recently been advocating for the district to improve safety on school sites to prevent school shootings and the district has done a sublime job on considering their demands. Lastly, one thing I would like to see a change in is on the food provided.
Fresno Unified School District gives students the opportunity to expand their knowledge and go above their limits. Many teachers are supportive and encourage students to challenge themselves and seek for a higher horizon. However, there are a few problems which many students would like to see improve. We would like better quality of facilities and food. Some bathrooms do not have soap or towels and it is sometimes very dirty. The food needs to be more nutritious. Having quality and healthy food is very important in order to help students succeed.
