Montebello Unified School District Reviews
I had a good experience with Montebello unified school district. I attended schools within the district since kindergarten at Garfield Elementary school, Bell Gardens Intermediate, and Bell Gardens High School. The people in all district are very kind. However, they are not many funds for the school. Thus students lack a lot of resources including updated books, longer library hours, and new equipment for sports. I participated in the Water Polo team in Bell Gardens High school. Our pool maintenance was very poor. Our gutter would shut down often forcing us to not practice. In all 4 years of being part of the swimming team, we never received a swim suit. The high school counselors don’t speak to their students often. Although, there are exceptions, Ms. Brendzal is a great counselour. She is countinously updating information about scholarships and meeting with all students.
The Montebello school district is diverse and can give everyone a chance in education. My grandma worked as an aid for teachers in the district for years and I've been in school part of the district since kindergarten. My experience and my grandma's is great. I'm able to learn something new everyday and if I need help I can always rely on the teachers and staff . In highschool it's even better because you know that they are there to help you like assistant principals, counselors, and the teachers. I would ask for advice for college and what should I do since I'm part of a low income family. They gave me hope that I'm able to go to the college I want to go. The college I want to go is UC Davis and I have an opportunity to go there, that's what the teachers are for because they support you and help you get there.
The Montebello Unified School District has incrisingly become flawed in the four years that I have attented Bell Gardens High School. Many conflicts have arisen such as fatally losing the Mayor my freshman year, to money scandals throughout my sophmore and junior years, and the firing of hundreds of teacher throughout the district during my junior year. As a student, it is devestating to see the district in shambles because they do not provide what is best to each school. They cater according to hierarchy and it is evident that the district attends to top tier schools before acknowledging the base.
