Placer Union High School District Reviews
Placer Union High School District attains many resources for one's path to success. When it comes to college and career planning, Placer High School puts a large emphasis on what individuals can achieve by obtaining a college degree. On the other hand, Placer lacks in some departments such as the facilities and diversity. What Placer lacks, though, it makes up when it comes to its rich culture and traditions that linger in the minds of its alumni.
I attend Foresthill High School which is the smallest high school in the district. It has been a great experience. There are so many advanatges to a small school. The teachers and staff are wonderful and work alongside each and every student to make sure they are acheiving and understanding the lesson. You have so much more one and one at a small school like Foresthill High. The outside activites such as sports and clubs you can be involved in vary in range and size. They want students to be able to feel connected and involved. They care about each students growth. They allow students to play multiple sports or be involved in multiple clubs. Their attention to each student is beyond incredible. There are so many more online and college classes we have the opportunity to take which is incredible and prepares you for college at an earlier stage. The extra push and confidence they have towards their classes makes the students relaize they care about them and the class.
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.
