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.

I go to san Francisco International High School. SF International is a public high school who are for newcomers. I love going to school there because I feel safe and supported by my teacher. During my senior year, I had the opportunity to work closely with SF Unified School District attending meetings with principles from different school in SF. I had the opportunity to know that their main goal is to improve the education of students so they can be prepare fro college. A change that I will like to see in the District is that the District should help more students who are newcomers because those are the only who need more support with the adaptation to their new environment and also the language.
There are some things that I feel the San Francisco Unified School District has done well. I think the academics are overall good and prepare students fairly well for college. I also think there is a good amount of opportunities for sports involvement. I do think there have been some problems with administration over the years. For example, the administration failed to excuse students from school when the ppm of pollutants in the air reached a level that many considered dangerous as a result of nearby fires. At our school, we were just told to close the windows and try not to walk outside much, which is very difficult in a widespread campus.
