Mariposa County Unified School District Reviews

I attended Mariposa County High School and graduated in 2015. Although I now attend a great university, my experience in high school did not help me. Majority of the students I graduated with did not even attend college. The very small percentage that did had to go above and beyond to attend good colleges. There were over 90 percent white students at the school, leaving minorities to feel left out. Some of the teachers are great, but most are average. The school offered few AP classes and little resources for students who wanted to excel academically.

As a parent, having to deal with the district can be stressful. I have felt lied to, blown off, and given the run around. Trying to request anything from the district is like pulling teeth. And don't go in there with a complaint, because you will be treated like a liar. They will protect the bad teachers and staff, while running the good ones out. Also bullying is a major problem at some of these schools, and they haven't done anything about it.
The academics were decent but I feel I didn't learn as much as I could have and when it came time to get ready for college they offered little to no college ready courses. The sports are not the greatest, granted its a D6 School, but the facility's for practice and games were absolute trash we barely had a weight room and our football field had holes in it. as far as diversity goes there wasn't really much a difference between people there. Their rotc courses were pretty cool options but they had a really hard time finding someone to teach the courses which made us miss out on a lot. By your senior year they pretty much just pass you on
