Placer Union High School District Reviews
I am a college freshman who graduated from Placer High School. The student to student culture of the school was very good. There was rarely any major instances, however; the coach to student culture was very poor. The football head coach and the soccer head coach (now assistant coach) have a very poor process for picking players for the team and who gets playing time. The head coach and booster president had restraining order put against them in 2016 for abuse to a player. On a more positive note most of the teachers there care about the students and preparing them for college. The biggest program lacking college readiness is the agriculture science department. This is not because of the intent of the class but the lack of curriculum and lack of professionalism by the instructor. Would I send my children to placer in the future? If they love agriculture as much as I do then no because of the agriculture science department, however; if they do not them yes I would.
Their is nothing like growing up in a small town area. I have gone to school in the Placer Union High School District throughout my entire High School career up to this point and I can say that their is nothing like growing up and becoming a young adult in the environment that my district has put on for me. I have gained a quality education, great experience in extra curricular activities and received an amazing amount of support to go for my aspirations in life.
Placer High school has been very good for many reasons. To start off, our school is so cultured and Spirited. Our gym and campus is very old and cultured and we are so spirited that it is weird if you don't dress up. Following, the staff here is amazing I love each of my teachers because they all are good examples and help us so much. Last but not least, the food here is amazing because we have an open campus were we can go to Tangos, Taco Tree, Mongolian, American Hero, and so much more.
