Madera Unified School District Reviews

There is nothing bad about the district but I also feel like there is nothing special about it either. There is teachers, administrators and counselors that are very helpful. I always felt safe there. Then again I feel that I am not prepared or ready for college yet. I had teachers where I learned very little from or didn't know how to control the classroom. Making the learning experience hard to concentrate or to pay attention.

Madera Unified really cares about the success of their students, they are always holding meeting to show the community the good that the students accomplish. I think that the Madera Unified school district can hold more events honoring students accomplishments in order to show how hard working they are.
The school culture Is amazing. I have had great motivating and learning experiences from this school districts. The field trips and involvement helped me find my true passion. All my teachers guided me properly and prepared me for college but, I wish there were more opportunities and courses in our district. Other than that, I am proud to be a part of Madera Unified.
