Hanford Joint Union High School District Reviews

Hanford Joint Union High School District is a smaller district including four different high schools. I attend Hanford West High School and my experience is an average one. Like any school and the district there are advantages and disadvantages. I can't complain about my district because we are lucky enough to be provided with a lot of resources. We recently went through change of staff involving a few teachers and our principle. The teachers are always there for you if you ever need help. Our district even offers tutoring if needed. However, the classes available are not as great. A lot were cut the past couple years. Academics, sports, and the school environment can use improvement and will hopefully undergo much needed changes.

The teacher’s were great and the courses were insightful and well structured. It’s a fairly new school so there wasn’t a huge variety of courses you could take. School was incredibly safe and friendly, down to earth vibe and the kids got a long fairly well. Very inclusive, didn’t see any bullying or anything of the sort. Athletics were good and the teachers were very involved and tried to get the best out of every student.
What do I like? I like the social events for students. ASB does a great job of setting up events that are fun and sociable, however, the education here is not very supportive of the academically advanced students. I would really love to see a wider variety of AP classes offered to students for them to express and discoveer their true talents in education. This will bolster the future of many students, but I just do not see the push to improve. The facilities are old and the air conditioning is poor. During the summer, the temperature in the classrooms are very warm due to the poor air conditioning.
