Pleasanton Unified School District Reviews
Pleasanton Unified School District is often stymied by a lack of budget and tenured teachers that have lost their passion for teaching. Often times, students must be self-motivated to accomplish anything major within the school district. There is a severe lacking of parental involvement within the school system, from kindergarten to the 12th grade. Especially in high school, parents are often not supporting or helping out with important activities, such as STEM based clubs and performing arts programs. While there are a select few teachers that really open up the minds of students, on average most teachers are mediocre and don't inspire students to learn deeper than the textbook. There is also a severe disparity in academic performance, motivation, and social interaction between kids on an advanced track and students following a normal track.
Excellent schools and community! Provide lots of activities and people are friendly here. Students are intelligent, responsible and happy.
I would love to see fences around all schools in ensure safety for the staff and students. Many teachers have helped me throughout the past four years, setting me up for success in my near future. The counselors were super easy to talk to if I ever had a problem or needed to have a quite space. The new addition of the Access period to my High School was amazing. It provides time during school hours for students to get work done or maybe make up a test. This was very beneficial Junior year because the sudden increase of school work. I was super busy with sports and this time gave me an opportunity to get a big portion of my homework done before I went home at night. Overall I think Access has been beneficial to all students.
