San Luis Coastal Unified School District Reviews

I moved to Morro Bay from Las Vegas and it's a whole different experience here. Although my former school was much bigger and had many more classes to offer, there's a certain charm in how personal it is with less than 1,000 students. The culture is really relaxed and not many students can say that they walked to the beach and went surfing during the lunch break!

Throughout my experience going through elementary, middle, and high school with this district, my experience has been overall pretty good. The teachers are all so kind at all of the schools and there are so many opportunities to grow and better yourself and your community. However I must say the funds at the high school are not divided up evenly once so ever between neither sports nor genders.
San Luis Coastal Unified School District is an amazing school district which provides a very safe and effiecent learning environment. All teachers and staff are fun, welcoming, and provide a great experience. The culture at the schools are nice and laid back, making things very stress free. Although, the two high schools are a little uneven in terms of opportunities. Overall it is a great district.
