Palo Alto Unified School District Reviews
Review Palo Alto Unified School District
I love this school! My daughter went here throughout many grades, and she graduated with honors in every class. She learned an abundant amount of knowledge from this school and she now has a full scholarship to Harvard University. This school has top academics, sports, and teachers. The teachers are very involved, tying to help the students excel. I encourage parents to consider enrolling your child here. It empacted my daughter in a great way!
Palo Alto has been a great place where people go to get their education. There may be a few flaws here and there but overall there are ways in which to fix them. When there's a problem, the faculty go first to the students to get feedback and that is something important because in the end it is the students who will benefit. The way of teaching is excellent, the teachers understand the students and if there is a problem with an assignment the teachers are willing to negotiate, they want the students trust. They get you prepared for college, and make sure you are ready for different environments. Clubs are excellent, they are a great way to meet new people that enjoy the same things as you do. Also they have the option of creating your own club if yours is not there. They also let students go off campus, such as off campus lunch which is a fun experience because they are giving students some independence.
Palo Alto is an unparalleled environment, filled with incredible opportunities, both for extracurriculars and academics. However, being located in the heart of silicon valley, next to Stanford University, as well as an area of high socioeconomic status has contributed to high levels of student stress. However, the school district is making a notable effort to instate initiatives to improve the mental health of their students.
