San Lorenzo Unified School District has great potential. The culture and community in our district is incomparable. We are diverse like no other, and come together in times of need. Our teachers have a great passion and are very hardworking. They all truly love their jobs and will be there for you if needed. San Lorenzo’s one fatal flaw, is the administration. Our budget is incredibly small not only because of state laws, but the administrations decision to cut more of our budget to accommodate a much larger security budget. If San Lorenzo’s administration was as passionate about quality of education as the teachers, we would be a five star in my book.

As a senior looking back on elementary and middle school it’s almost a blur. The lunch could use improvement but recently they started to have tastier options. I wish that the school district pay a little more attention to the staff (including janitors) because honestly they deal with a lot of different students and I feel like they don’t receive much appreciation. Something that I really enjoyed is that the teachers throughout the years have always impacted me in some sort of way on a personal level. There were a lot of teachers that you can tell really worked to help improve students. I only wished the school district payed a little more attention to the smaller schools.
Both my daughters have attended grade, middle, and high school in the Unified school district of San Lorenzo. My daughters are 10 years apart, but I've been able to participate in this little community of ours, and I have remained friends with so many people from the experience. Both my daughters were 2 letter athletes, and also participated in the San Lorenzo athletic programs.
