Los Angeles Unified School District Reviews

The LAUSD is a large administrative body that oversees a multitude of schools so rating it unequivocally should be done by someone with a long attendance or one who has been to many schools in the district. I have done both, I also attended schools outside the district, helping me contrast my opinion towards the LAUSD. I attended Sherman Oaks Elementary, George Ellery Hale Middle School, William Howard Taft High, and El Camino Real High (now "Charter High School"). I am very pleased with the academic integrity of these schools, especially El Camino Real, my alma mater! I was taught by diligent and caring teachers, and I was advised by well-informed counselors.
Even as a U.S. citizen, a student's unique appearance or skin complexion may work against them at school. Contrary to where some schools can be a place where predicaments like bullying or isolation occur, LAUSD embraces and fosters a diverse student body.
I have been in this district since I started school. I have enjoyed being a part of the LAUSD District because I enjoy the diversity in both students, teachers,and other staff members. I have never seen any discrimination to anyone due to their race, ethnicity, religion, or any other reason. I also enjoy the support that the district and schools provide us. The encouragement they give us since we start our route of education. The staff always encourage us to follow our dreams and go to college and succeed. They provide us with methods of achieving our career goals and start to prepare us. The only thing I can possibly have a complaint is the safety because there are always lock downs, shootings, and other things. I have understood that the district is not to blame but the school for its lack of security that can be improved in many areas. Overall, this distrcit is outstanding!
Some of the high school teachers don't care how you do in class. They do not care if you don't do their classwork, homework, etc. I would probably like to see a change in that knowing my little sister is in LAUSD. LAUSD overall, I like it. They have after school programs for those kids who can't get home right after school, and they have before school programs for kids that need to be dropped off before school starts. They serve breakfast for the kids that are there early, their breakfast was amazing! I loved it! I would change the lunch a little and have a lot more variety of foods.
