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!

The Huntington Beach Union High School District offers diverse and interactive education in a friendly and supportive environment. As a former student of Fountain Valley High School, I can say that Fountain Valley has made me a successful and prepared college student. Students and staff alike strongly encourage hard work ethic to help them be more effective in their studies. The district offers a multitude of clubs, sports, activities, and ROP classes to help students connect and discover themselves.
There are so many opportunities in this district. Between the incredible sports teams and organizations such as APA, or Academy for the Performing Arts, students are free to explore their passions and try new things. Teachers are almost always invested in their students' success and will go above and beyond to help them succeed. I have never seen a student who was sincere about asking for help improving in their classes be turned away. Overall, it's a very caring and supportive atmosphere filled with caring faculty to guide students and numerous paths for students to explore early in life, before they have to worry about picking just one.
