San Francisco Unified School District Reviews

I live in Oakland and I go to school and San Francisco. Honestly, I know it’s a lot to wake up early morning just to go to school, but it’s worth it! The faculty at the school district is very helpful and student focused! The schools are very competitive within sports as well. Eventhough the diversity is very low, certain teachers are very helpful and encouraging other students to interact with others out of their comfort zone.

I’ve had excellent teachers that always push for their students to be curious and willing to go out an improve the future of the community. The students also focus on bettering the system and themselves and put a lot of thought into education. There are many opportunities for extracurricular activities and different languages that are offered for students to learn. Furthermore, people who do not have English as their first language would still be able to catch up to their peers because the school district provides extra measures to ensure the success of their students.
The greatest pearl of the San Francisco Unified School District is its almost absent bullying and discrimination. As a San Francisco Unified School District student my entire life, I did not once experience or observe any form of bullying or discrimination within the student and faculty/administration circle. Students and faculty/administration of the San Francisco Unified School District are extremely aware of the attitudes and happenings of the school environment as well as the political environment, willing to protect and encourage students to stand up for others. San Francisco Unified School District provides a culturally, emotionally, and physically safe and enriching environment for all of its students.
