Las Virgenes Unified School District Reviews

I came out of the LA unified school district into LVUSD. I love it! Due to the increased funding of this district (higher property taxes and all), the student experience is really improved. All students are offered a laptop, the school is always well maintained and nice looking, and the students have a voice. Also, the teachers here, at my school at the very least, really seem to care about their students. They are people before being teachers, and the smaller class sizes really help us as students when it comes to getting to know our teachers. In summation, the increased funding and the samller size of the district greatly imporves the student and teacher experience.

LVUSD definitely has some problems, but overall it's a great place to learn. Administration can be clueless and overly cautious especially when it comes to administrators trying to protect their reputations. Most changes are superficial and symbolic. The best part of the district is the teachers. I have been in this school district for eight years and have never encountered a teacher who I did not connect with on some level. Teachers have great relationships with their students and one another which makes people want to go to class and do well. The staff truly grasps the student-teacher relationship in that teachers speak honestly with students about the flaws of the education system, but they do not share so much that the relationship becomes overly personal.
Campuses are clean and well kept for the most part. The janitorial staff at all of the school are so nice and hard working. Some buildings are run down but not in anyway that impedes safety or learning.
I went to Calabasas High School. Decent school I guess, fairly clean for a public school and pretty good resources in which to learn. However many teachers lack experience in teaching and aren't interested in engaging students. Food sucks nothing to eat. You have to go off campus to get anything decent. However it's always a mad rush to get off campus. So good luck getting back to class on time. That's the other thing. Not a whole lot of motivation to go to class. Lectures are meaningless and you can do most work online before class even begins. Nonetheless, I had a lot of fun at this school and made some life long friends. So it was worth it in that case.
