My time attending Torrey Pines high school is coming to a end due to this horrible global pandemic, here are some reasons why SDHUSD is a amazing district. First of all, the teachers are amazing and have helped me to there fullest extent. For example, I was going to miss 2 weeks of school due to a personal issue and my teachers fully understood where I was coming from. They adjusted to my schedule and were very understanding. Not only are the teachers flexible but they are also very understanding. Second, the school spirit at Torrey Pines is immense and never disappoints, you can always count on a full student section at every major sporting event. Finally, the atmosphere on campus is safe and inclusive to everyone. Not once did i feel uncomfortable going to school or participating in a activity. SDUHSD is the best district in san diego and deserves more credit than it does.

I went to San Dieguito Academy and I love the atmosphere on campus! The students are very welcoming and supportive of their classmates and although we do not have a football team, students still go to sporting events and cheer on the mustangs. The only problem i’ve ever had at school was when I was diagnosed with a concussion. Many of my teachers refused to accept my work late once I was cleared to participate in class. This obviously took a toll on my grades which has affected my chances of getting into college.
The staff here are extremely helpful, the teachers care about the students and their wellbeing and doesn't overwork them with unnecessary work. The school has tons of resources for the students, and encourages the overall wellbeing of the students, for example students can sign up for a mental health day where they open up to peers about their struggles and help one another. Overall a great community!
