My experience at Lynwood Unified School District was definitely something that has impacted m life. I grew up here my whole life so I became accustomed to everything my school had to offer. I personally think that you can be successful no matter where you're at. There was less resources that I was given, but it wasn't impossible to obtain them. I dedicated my life to my education and I did seek for all the support I could obtain and now I will be attending University of Southern California. I hope that others are aware that the district is only a factor but not a limitation to what you can achieve.

Lynwood Unified School District is home to many past and current students. I feel that safety really should be improved a little more than what it already is. The substitutes are not very good and there are some teachers that are not such the best. The administration is always kind and welcoming of course. when it comes to sports, not as good but at least student-athletes put a lot of effort I suppose. when it comes to the food, it's alright but I do see that there should be a little more improvement of course. Parent involvement is always huge. Clubs and Activities are limited actually from how I see it in my point of view. Overall, Lynwood Unified has been a very good school district as the school administration board does as much as possible for the schools and their students.
What I love about this district is that it shows a lot of pride for my culture. Lynwood is impacted with many Hispanics and it is nice to see so many events that represent different Hispanic/Latin cultures. They also give out so many resources for jobs, volunteer work, and community service as well as college courses and programs to help students in their career choices and school credits
