The San Juan District more focused on diversity than you on teaching. Great schools but just like every other school there are fights. The district needs to handle them better instead of push the issue away. The district should also be concerned with your teachers relationships with your students. Some teachers are horrible teachers. At one point, I had a teacher that wouldn't teach at all during distance learning. He had us all in the google classroom and assigned work on top of work. He assigned tests. He never taught us. The entire rest of the year he didn't answer our emails, he didn't zoom us or call over google meets. Us as students in the IB program were very frustrated and figured it out ourselves. We contacted each other over google classroom. The teacher was getting notified so he blocked communications over google classroom. Now not only did we have a teacher who didn't teach, we couldn't ask other students for help in that class. Hire better teachers, San Juan Unified!

We’ve had a great experience with San Juan’s IB Program. The teachers are excellent and the expectations of the students has been fantastic. However, we have dealt with issue after issue with their enrollment. It’s been impossible to get my children into the districts “open enrollment” schools because they are in such demand, especially since neighborhood schools are so undesirable. It’s really unfortunate the system the district has set up with “Open” schools. It has made neighborhood schools terrible and the choice schools impacted.
We feel like unless our children are in Rapid Learner or IB program or in “Open” schools, they won’t get a good education.
I have always been in the San Juan Unified School District and it has always been a great experience, I have never had a problem! The teachers and staff has always been wonderful. I have learned a lot from many different intelligent peers that taught me. I have had many struggles but I have been able to over them with the help of my teachers. Not only have I met great teachers but I have also met and made friends from each of those teachers, they are all people I can trust.
