San Dieguito Union High School District Reviews

Oak crest middle school is definitely lacking. It is a HUGE eyesore asbestos, cockroaches, bathroom doors on backwards, and just general age. As well as there are teachers who do nothing or copy off of other teachers. Most teachers are good and deserve a nice workplace. Also the idea of home rooms at oak crest is NOT WORKING. Nobody likes it and all of the activities are boring. Oak crest is not safe because of the facility. Wait until this school is remodeled and the lacking teachers are laid off or go somewhere else!

My daughter graduated from the San Dieguito Union High School District two years ago and she is now in her Sophomore year at Chapman University in Orange County, as small private school. The district sets extremely high standards for their faculty and their students, and the high school experience was a well balanced one with academics, sports, and wonderful friendships. The school has been highly ranked in the state for many years. This district also helped prepare her for the college academics and she received a fantastic merit scholarship for college. Thank you so much. It was a wonderful 4 years.
This is a great school district to attend if you strive to attend and be prepared for college. I received a wealth of education in the classroom setting and beyond from the teachers I was taught by. Not only are the academics top notch, but the athletics department is known for being one of the best in Southern California. You will receive a great education while experiencing the full "high school experience". The only downfall of SDUHSD is the lack of diversity in the majority of the high schools. This is likely a result of the area in which the schools are located, and it is not the fault of the district, but it rare to see many minorities in these high schools.
