Placentia-Yorba Linda Unified School District Reviews
It has the best learning environment with the most diversity. There are a lot over achieving students with people that care about learning. Everyone is well rounded and excited to participate in school. The majority of the students are very kind and optimistic. The community is very safe and not too big or small. The teachers teach well and their academic programs are very open to everyone. There is culinary at Yorba Linda Highschool, ED Law at Eldorado High School, IB/Valtech at Valencia Highschool, and Medicine at Esperanza.
The Placentia-Yorba Linda Unified School District is a friendly and supportive community. But, there are a few changes that I would like to see in my district. For example, ever since the percentage of vaping has increased among teens, restrooms have become a notorious "hiding spot" for vaping. Because of this, many students feel uncomfortable going inside restrooms. I believe schools should try informing their students about the effects of vaping instead of trying to "solve" the problem by closing the restrooms. Another change that I would like to see are the snacks in vending machines. I believe a school should also care about their student's health and not just their academic performance. How can someone expect a student to be successful if he or she doesn't have the energy to perform well? Not only that but because many students are involved in some sort of physical activity, it's crucial for them to have access to a healthy snack.
I personally had a good time attending the schools is the district. However, I myself and some people experienced some things that other people didn't experience. There were times where my close friends and their parents were not treated with respect and taken for granted. In the school program I was in during high school, they had so much bias and no one in the school administartion cared and decided to punish those who were not at fault. That is one of the reasons why I give it an average becauseit was prevailent in many schools that I knew.
