For all my academic life I was in Pacific Grove and always under Pacific Grove’s Unified School District. From elementary school to high school I was always there, in the system. The teachers were often very helpful and informative and helped me excel in my academics. The counselors are great and are willing to help you in any situation and are very helpful and informative when it came time to start applying to colleges. Whenever there was a problem with students with threats being made they handled it very well, trying their best to find the best route to control the sit sustain and make every student feel comfortable. I really am happy my parents chose this district for me to learn and study at. The principals and teachers were all very attentive and willing to help anyone. They care about their students and I felt that while being there.

I came into the district in the seventh grade. Ever since then I have learned a lot about this community. When I first entered the district, everyone was very welcoming and made me feel that I belonged and wasn´t just the ¨new kid.¨ The teachers are all very helpful and very intelligent. You feel comfortable with them. Not only are the teachers very nice, but so are all of the hardworking staff members. The facilities are very nice but will need some remodeling done in the next few years. I play soccer for the high school and the coaches are mostly all very nice and well experienced in the sports. Overall the district is pretty good.
I only went to PGHS for two years, but the two years I did attend I loved every single teacher I had! The class sizes were fairly small so you weren't just another face in the crowd. The teachers were always available after hours incase you ever needed them. Not much school spirit compared to the first high school I attended. Curriculum challenged me enough to allow me to succeed as well.
