I've attended Pueblo City Schools for my entire life -- and despite there being prenominal teachers and clubs I can join while attending, there are some certain aspects about Pueblo City Schools that are lacking or below par. Firstly, the food an facilities are very poor and are in desperate need for a renovation/replacemhe food isn't even good! Additionally, I had a job with Pueblo City Schools at their football field, and the field and the stadium was a total mess! The stadium is in desperate need of a renovation, and/or a replacement! As for the other sides of the schools, some of the teachers do their jobs, and others don't -- it's a hit or miss when it comes to getting a good teacher. Additionally, it's not really the safest school to be at, as there

Pueblo City Schools had done an okay job at providing an education and preparing me for college but could use an overhaul in their administration and management. The district mishandles their funds which leads to schools' budgets being lacking in various departments. The way they handle disciplinary issues could use more work as well. Several times they overreact to minor incidents but will hand out mild punishments for more serious disciplinary issues. Students with several occurrences of acting out or causing trouble are given chance after chance within schools all around the districts. Overall, Pueblo City Schools isn’t the worst place in the country to attend school, but they have a lot to improve in.
I like to focus on the positive points about Pueblo City Schools (District 60), before I start giving my opinions, and recommendations to improve the school district. Firstly, I really like how diverse, and caring the students, and faculty are in Pueblo City Schools. These people usually make you feel important, and care for you, and your success. I have experienced this since being enrolled in Pueblo City Schools since Kindergarten, and I haven't left the school district! Another notable thing about the school district is how devoted they are to tradition(s), and culture, making it one of the cornerstones when attending any school in the school district. However, there are many instances where the school district could be greatly improved. Consequently, many facilities are, "run-down," and outdated. Not to mention the usually unfavorable school lunches. This is my take on the good, but certainly improvable school district I attend.
