Sacramento City Unified School District Reviews

From my experience, teachers have been okay, and administration at school is mismanaged. The teachers are a hit or miss. They are either highly educated and very organized or do not know enough about the subject and do not have their class in order. Teaching is very inconsistent across classes of the same level as well. If you are in a program the teachers tend to be better, but for general education students, the teachers are lacking in organization and difficulty. Luckily my high school offers an advanced program, Humanities and International Studies Program, which has some great teachers. The administration at my school is inefficient and does not work with students problems. Counselors are also very inefficient in their work and do not help students enough with the transition to college. Overall, the district does not have enough money and budget cuts have been made, but last year we had the SAT payed for the students for one test and AP tests this years are payed for.
