La Canada Unified School District Reviews
Good education, small district, good teachers and classes . Teachers are willing to take an active part in helping the students if they need it. Have had a good experience here at the elementary, middle and high school. Like that I have had the same people to go to school with all 12 years. Get to know the community and the people so makes the experience so much better. I am glad that I was able to be part of LCUSD. I hope that others that come into the district have a good experience.
Overall, the La Canada School district is very wealthy. Much of the parents went to these schools, so they donate loads of money. But the money is not spent wisely. This includes buying speakers for assemblies as opposed to buying tissues for teachers so they don't have to buy them out of their pocket. The school difficulty is hard and very competitive. If you are not a 4.0 GPA student, you are looked down upon amongst friends, teachers and peers. The school environment is toxic because of this. Pressure on children to get good grades take a toll unlike no other. Although competitive, it has its ups and downs.
I overall enjoy my high school experience at La Canada; however, I wish that the standards and expectations weren't as high for students because this results in extremely high stress levels.
