Pacific Grove Unified School District Reviews

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.
The Pacific Grove School District provides many opportunities for students to excel socially and academically. From a social standpoint, the schools in the Pacific Grove district offer many diverse clubs and activities for students to pursue interests. Additionally, the district provides honors and advance placement courses that I believe have helped myself and other students challenge us to work hard. In my opinion, the district does not need to change.
