Imperial Unified School District Reviews

Overall this school district is not anything extraordinary, it is very generic. Low funding, poor investment choices, and average school environments. However I liked how there were certain really invested teachers who loved their job. They helped me grow into the person I am today and prepared me for the future that awaits me. The students at the schools lack spirit and energy. This creates an empty and tired environment, which I did not like. I have attended Imperial District schools since third grade and the community is linked, but not at the same time. At school events, barely any students go out of their way to show up. This reflects their spirit or liking to the school and its own activities. There are flaws within the political system of how the schools are, but that's in every school. Money is the main root to it all. My high school emphasizes attendance and even when there is a global pandemic, school still remains so they receive all the money they could possibly get.

I moved to Imperial High School for my Junior year and I much prefer this high school over my previous one. Imperial High School focuses on the academics and helps me be better prepared for the college experience. In my previous school, the workload was easy and not very challenging for a student. At Imperial High School, I feel as if I am challenged and that I will be prepared for college. The only thing I would change is the spirit that my school lacks. I would also like there to be more advanced classes so that I can challenge myself even further.
My experience at Imperial high school for the past three years were interesting yet amazing. As a senior at the school I wa surrounded by students that were ready to learn and were ready to be apart of something at school. The school diversity wasn’t very diverse the majority was Mexian Americans and even though not being around as many cultures it didn’t really effect the way I learned at school. The teachers at the school were there when you needed them the work load was somewhat a lot by never so much too much that you’d feel overwhelmed with. The school itself was and is an amazing school they help you understand what you’re learning it’s not a school that comes off as terrible. In the end my experience at the school was interesting I learned what I had to learn at the school.
