Long Beach Unified School District Reviews

I've experienced nothing but amazing teachers, staff, and administrators at Long Beach Unified School District. The staff really goes above and beyond for the students. The city of Long Beach is very diverse, and the student body reflects the diversity of the city. Academic wise, majority of the schools have been recognized as "Blue Ribbon Schools." A wide range of AP and Honor classes are offered, exposing students to higher education and the importance of going to college. However, as far as safety, some schools lack security or proper registry of visitors on campus. For example, I am aware of a few schools where parents have gone on campus to confront recreational aides. This not only makes it uncomfortable for the staff, but it means anyone can walk onto the school property without being searched. Long Beach Unified High Schools has some of the best sports departments, and a handful of seniors have been recruited to play in college or the major leagues!

I immigrated from the Philippines. I've studied at a private school. So, academically, I knew that I was prepared. I was happy that I have more control over the classes I want to take. I was able to take AP classes and join programs such as Cabrillo High School's Teen Court that better prepared me for college. The safety of the students is a top priority! I was also able to make use of different services when I needed either tutoring or health concerns. The administration and staff were very mindful of students' success by ensuring that their needs inside and outside the classroom are provided. The infrastructure were also maintained well. We had working water fountains and other facilities such as: bathrooms, gyms, and other rooms are clean and safe. The school environment not only hone your skills, but it is a great foundation for preparing you college and the real world!
I feel very fortunate to be a part of Long Beach Unified. We are a very diverse district, and I love that every race, culture, gender, or sexual identity can feel safe here. I do also think that through Long Beach Unified we need to get more people involved in clubs, and activities around the community and campus. Overall, our sports programs are amazing, and I love being a cheerleader so I can cheer on my school. School spirit is very important to me and Long Beach definitely has that!
