Pleasanton Unified School District Reviews

I went to Foothill high school for brew years and I have to say the teachers are awesome! They work with you one on one and will take the time to really help you. The teachers teach in more ways than one that fits the student. And they also will help guide you in a direction that you want to go when I want to be in. They have an amazing way of just creating a really nice teacher student atmosphere in the classroom and it really pleasant and really fun and easy going. I have to say the students were very in "groups" and certain outings like rallies it led to a reinforcement to those groupings. It felt really selective when I came to those groups and sometimes I felt like the school encouraged that. I also love the counseling group I had a counselor there who helped me for three years and she was awesome and she always so me when she could and she was just very encouraging and was always supportive and so was the rest of the administration team.

The Pleasanton Unified School District is a very good district for children to attend. The majority of teachers are great and enjoy teaching, the schools are incredibly safe, and students have access to many facilities and resources that many other districts do not have. The one major downside of the PUSD is the people in the district itself. Questionable decisions are often made (such as the abrupt firing of an elementary school principal or the installation of three traffic lights outside of the high school) with little to no input from the community, and often to the community's detriment. The Pleasanton Unified School District is great, but be aware of what is happening behind the scenes.
I have grown up in the Pleasanton Unified School District. The teachers, faculty, and administrators have provided a nurturing environment that has ultimately led me to become who I am today. As a student in PUSD, I learned responsibility, honesty, integrity, compassion, and many more character traits that aid me in becoming a capable citizen. Never had I felt that I was incapable or undeserving; instead, I was encouraged to be my best self. PUSD is a community of support, and it is a community that makes equality and student enrichment top priorities.
