Modesto City High School District Reviews
Elliott Alt. Education Center is all about the students and their education. They offer great on-campus day-care programs for the student mothers and pregnant teens. They have an infant day-care and a toddler day-care. My daughter was enrolled in both as she grew older. The toddlers have a play area, you have a period to spend with your child, and best of all they offer buses to pick you and your child up at your home and after school drop you off at your door! You provide your own car seat. Without this program, Elliott offers I wouldn't of complete my diploma and be in college like I am today! Thanks, Elliott!
Overall my experience with the Modesto City High School district was very good. I was extremely lucky to have such great teachers that were dedicated to the education of their students and instilled helpful study habits that will help me exceed at the next level in college. However one aspect of the district that I think can improve education greatly is the level of classes available to high school students. Most of my classes were advanced placement, however I felt like there was a big drop off in the rigor and work load between AP and college prep. CP classes consist of busy work and worksheets that don’t do justice to what students will be faced with in college. There should be a middle level between CP and AP, so there isn’t much of a gap between the two levels for the students deciding on what classes to take. This would give a much better balance in the school district and improve education opportunities for all students.
What I liked about Modesto City Highschool district is the classes and teachers but the kids there aren't great. If I could I'd make freshmen and sophomores have 4th lunch while Juniors and seniors have 5th to avoid conflict. Also getting to class through the hallways is hell, I wish they'd make pathways for one door to go in and the other out otherwise there's always drama when some kid thinks you bump them on purpose when you're just trying to get to class, but now you can't because this pressed person wants to start something that wasn't even your fault to begin with.
