Hayward Unified School District Reviews

There are some teachers at HUSD that are very passionate about teaching and consistently work to better themselves for the sake of their students educational growth. However there are also teachers that don't teach very well. Overall, the teachers balance each other out to a point where a student can receive a generally good educational experience at HUSD, both in and outside of the classroom. HUSD could improve by taking active steps to dismantle the school-to-prison-pipeline trend that is prevalent in many unprivileged communities including HUSD.

I enjoy what the Hayward Unified School District does despite the lack of funding the school district has. At school, I am in an environment where I could learn and I am with others who take initiative in their learning. However, the facilities at my school are not up to date with the curriculum being taught. The bathroom tiles at my school are on the verge of falling apart and the choir program is performing in a cafeteria instead of a performing art stage. I want to be in an environment where I am not fearful that something is going to drop upon me. Additionally, the school district should fund such like resume workshop, college application workshop, and budgeting workshops so the students are better prepared when going into the workforce or college.
Living in Hayward, one thing I am very proud about is being able to see diversity from left to right. As you walk in to my school you see different cultures and different races. Given that there is diversity in my community we including myself learn about them. Personally, I love expressing my individuality through my ethnicity which is Filipino. In return, I have friends who come from different background such as, Polynesians, Fijians, and many more. In the future, I hope that we can improve our school such as, renovating our restrooms. We should take this into consideration is because all students deserve to have a well sanitize bathroom especially, that we are unaware of what might we be in contact given that these are very tangible. I hope that our district might at least consider helping us with the all if not, some of the cost to renovate a new restroom for the students because it helps us feel more comfortable and safe using school bathrooms.
