North Monterey County Unified School District Reviews
Overall, I loved my experiences at North Monterey County Unified School District. I believe I received the help and guidance I needed to get into college, but I have to admit that I also struggled in the beginning. It requires a large amount of self-advocacy to connect with coordinators because of their large caseloads. Through my determination, I was able to connect with many of my teachers and administrators, though that didn't make me ignore the reality that many of my peers were not receiving the same level of opportunities. I believe that the overall experience would have been enhanced if we added more coordinators, or were simply able to meet with them more often. More time to meet would enable coordinators to get to know their students more and discuss their desired pathway. Overall school culture if very united and welcoming. Teachers are loving and truly care about their students. More resources are slowly coming in, but access requires persistence in searching!
Unfortunately over the past years North County High School has taken a turn for the worst. Since my freshmen year there has been a drastic decline in the teaching staff. Most new teachers that are hired at NCHS either leave or get fired by the end of the new year. As for academics, I do not know if it is the curriculum that teachers are not prepared to or a lack of passion or dedication in the teaching staff. It is sad to t see so much potential in students that can achieve so much more, if given the chance to learn from people that actually want to teach. Being in Honors and AP classes give us (students) false hope, because even those courses are not preparing us for college. NMCHS graduates are getting placed in basic math in UC's and CSU's who where AP Calculus students at NMCHS prior to enrolling into college. We have awesome clubs and sportsmanship, I wish that NMCHS would improve on what matters. That thing that matters is student readiness.
North county is a wonderful school district! It's diverse in its student body, the staff is helpful and accommodating in every way. From registration through graduation, they are top notch. Elkhorn school is awesome. My daughter flourished there. The teachers are the best in the business.
