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!

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.
When our school, University High School, was rechartered in 2016, the district refused to take us again unless we got rid of the math requirement for the future incoming freshman. Because the school went with this, some freshman were coming to a school that had dual enrollment with the college and college prep classes with math proficiency at the level of an average fourth grader. I foresee this causing a lot of the new students to drop out this following year. They focused more on making the school available to more students but at the same did not seem to realize that it would be detrimental for them to attend UHS.
