Maricopa Unified School District Reviews
As a student attending a school in the Maricopa county district, I am proud to say that the academics are very well done. The schools, prepare students for college and provide the necessary resources that students may need. While they also provide an array of opportunities, with which ever school is most fit for the student, including charter, public, and prep schools. Making sure that every student gets the chance to receive the same level of education. I would also like to add that school culture is something with great significance, and I have experience to believe that school culture is a priority to keep every school unique, however this was just my experience, and I may be biased due to the fact that I have only ever been to charter and preparatory schools.
Gateway Community College is great because everything is so easy to find. There are so many programs and extra curricular activities to get involved in as well. For me personally the Advisors are amazing at Gateway. They helped me get to Orientation and started with my classes. I am now registered ahead of time and am ready to learn! Personally I couldn't have done it without the staff. They are all so proficient with their roles at the college. To me, that shows that the district knows what they are doing and I appreciate that.
There are many dedicated high school teachers whom the students love to learn from! Unfortunately, the administration (namely, the superintendent) has no idea what they are doing. For example, they changed the grading guidelines two times within a 2 month period and have blocked requests for school spirit events. Another problem is with the high school counselors. They regularly respond to questions from parents with completely false information, it is very difficult for students to be seen (by appointment only) to their assigned counselor, and there is no aid or guidance provided to the students regarding direction or scholarship opportunities.
