Gilroy Unified School District Reviews
Personally, I truly enjoyed the ability to take part in the Biomedical Science Academy that they have at Gilroy High School, because not many schools in our area have the program. Both high schools offer a lot of different class options for the many interests of the students, which is incredibly helpful as students are beginning to try to find out what they would like to pursue as a future career. The schools have many teachers that genuinely care for the well-being of students and it is very apparent that the teachers are there to help the students achieve academic greatness. Although there is much to love about the schools in this district, there are also many issues. From elementary to high school, there is quite a bit of bullying that occurs to some students, and it doesn't seem like much has been done to stop or address this issue. Another issue that is apparent is the school spirit at some schools is very minimal and it seems like the students just aren't happy to be there.
All I can say is after fleeing my war torn country, the Gilroy unified school district gave me a home and helped me start school again. The gilroy unified administration that attended to my documentation we’re very sweet and kind people to me. With their help I attended Christopher Highschool, got perfect grades and moved to college. I was a little lost getting into the whole new system but I was very grateful to have people in this school districts who not only care for your education but the fact that your happy to learn, I’m very grateful to this people and totally recommend the gilroy unified school district for any new comers into the state and mote importantly the country.
I have had a great experience with the Gilroy Unified School District. I was involved in the Biomedical Science Program at Gilroy High and the Dual Immersion Program at Las Animas, South Valley, and Gilroy High. I have been extremely happy with these programs and the teachers I have had within these programs. Some of the sports could be improved at Gilroy High, specifically finding a track and field coach, but regardless I have had a good experience with the Gilroy Unified School District.
