Huntington Beach Union High School District Reviews

Overall, my experience in Huntington Beach Union High School District was good. For the most part, teachers do a very good job at teaching their materials and working with students. One thing in particular about teaching I did not enjoy that was common in Huntington Beach was the "flipped classroom," where teachers would assign notes to do at home, and then homework in class. It felt very lazy and unhelpful to me. While the school environment and overall cleanliness of the school were very good, I felt that school faculty was always very slow to deal with issues around campus. For example, if a student were to vandalize a bathroom, the bathroom would be locked for weeks to months. That said, I felt that all of the schools had a lot of spirit and student genuinely enjoyed attending them. Go Chargers!

My overall experience at Huntington Beach Union High School was pretty average. The only thing I really enjoyed was the school culture, more importantly the clubs! The teachers are all very helpful and excellent. The only downfall really of this school is their food is notoriously known for being subpar and the facilities are always broken and/or always in need of something.
Incredible! In the beginning, when I joined the district I was determined to get involved and set high standards for myself to have the best academic performance. The schools really bring the community together and enable us to strive! Being in this district, for four years has helped me prepare for college and have a positive mindset for the future.
