Pasco School District Reviews

What I liked about the Pasco School District is how caring they are about students' safety, education, and support they give out. From elementary school they had a program for parents to be involved in the students education. In middle school and high school they open the doors for students to have first grabs to advanced classes and running start programs, that lead them in a successful direction. From my experience, teachers in the Pasco School District truly care for all their students success. I could always rely on counselors at my school for help with college applications, registration and guidance. There is a wide range of resources that are made available for all students! There is even forms available for students who can apply for free lunch, and forms for students who need help paying off fines.
This leads me on to think that the only improvement the Pasco School District needs is to reinforce everything well that they do.

What I like about the pasco school district is they cared about children safety when the weather was bad cancellations were always accurate the teachers always cared about children’s academics and there life to succeed in the future they were like 3rd parents guiding me threw life so that I wouldn’t fall off trac and become the best version of me. They never left anyone out either you can Express your religion and culture without being bashed on about it. The sports were always fun to watch and participate in when they had school activities everyone was so joyful and always had school spirit. The resources the pasco school district provided was more than enough we had laptops and TVs and computers so that we can log in and get assigned assignments done and it was easier to communicate with the teachers if I had a problem at home and needed to contact them!
Pasco high did NOT prepare my son for college. Some great teachers and counselors, but also some just there to get a pay check. Stop hiring relatives and give people with a good work ethic the opportunity to truly care about kids in the district!
