Gilroy Unified School District Reviews

What I like about the Gilroy High School District is that at my school they have very well trained teachers. For example, my AP Calculus teacher Mrs.Pham is one of the best math teachers I've had for math. Another teacher is Mrs.Spunetti, I have as a teacher for Human Body Systems (Honors). The reason I pointed out these two teachers is that they have their lesson planned figured out for the day, they teach well, and they are on time with grading and feedback. What I would like to see at our school more are clubs, activities, and a cleaner campus.

The Gilroy Unified School District and the schools underneath it have always met high standards. The teachers not only taught the criteria, but taught many life lessons and inspired me to become a teacher. The atmosphere at each school made me feel welcome and cared for. I would love to teach for the Gilroy Unified School District one day.
Gilroy Unified School District is a pretty average school district. I wouldn’t say that it is a great school district,but with some improvement it can definitely become better. I feel that there needs to be better administration at all schools and make sure that all administration is on the same page. Most of the time there is conflict between administration, parents, and students that disrupts students learning. However, with better direct communication from the school district to parents everything would run more smoothly.
