Long Beach Unified School District Reviews
The Long Beach Unified School District has treated me well during the 6 years I’ve been enrolled. The diversity of students is outstanding so you never seem to be ruled out as a minority. Academics wise, I’ve been provided with a challenging curriculum allowing me to expand my knowledge of certain topics. Although, I feel as if some teachers enjoy their jobs more than others. The food situation disappoints a lot of students as there not many options. All in all, the LBUSD is prodigious!
I grew up with LBUSD for the majority of my life and throughout these years I've had a very positive experience. However, I do believe that the schools should encourage students to be more involved with their community or club(s). Otherwise this district offers a wide option of classes for their students and provides many opportunities for those with special needs and those who are of low income. It's a good district that can help your child find their potential and seek academic success!
Personally throughout my elementary, middle and high school life I went to schools in the LBUSD. Teachers have been great, however food definitely need to improve. They need healthier options in order for the students to remain healthy through their childhood. Music wasn't promoted very well in elementary and middle school, they should make changes to let children be creative!
