Pasadena Unified School District Reviews
Pasadena city college is literally Pasadena high school 2.0, and that's not a good thing. The dean ignores students and their request without a care, their are homeless people on our campus in our locker rooms showering in the students Locker rooms with shopping carts filled with cans and the staff their is absolutely lazy! Their are few good teachers and staff but the others are irritable, incompetent, and have a hunger for power over students. I can not wait to leave this school and transfer out. I hope which ever college I transfer to is understanding of what pcc is like. I wish people would step up and help pcc better themselves.
I've feel like I've had an enriching experience at my school, and made good use of my time before college. I've gone to the school board before to speak on concerns and been greeted by both snotty old people with ph.d's who don't seem to care about our programs, and enthusiastic and understanding staff who took our problems seriously. Either way, every concern we've addressed has been handled. We often have to deal with the threat of our favorite and most rewarding programs being cut that are deemed less important that other curriculars, such as drama and ASL, but so far we've been able to save everything we fight for. We have good AP teachers, helpful counselors, and a very diverse public system that has left me feeling excited for my future. Only a few scandals.
I found that the Pasadena Unified School District didn't have an organized administration team as nothing would happen. The schools were under funded, creating bad arts, academics, and sports programs. Generally, I found most teachers to be engaging and supportive of the students in the lower schools, the middle schools had teachers who didn't seem to like teaching or children. Overall, my experience with PUSD was not great.
