Administration sucks, including counselors. Teachers are HIT OR MISS, although the ones that I do like, I really like :) shoutout Mrs. Duan and Mr. Larry Fitzgibbons. Overall school attitude has a lot of college clout chaser vibes, which leads to poor club management, because students don’t actually care about improving or leading anything, they’re just striving for nice college apps. Very popularity based too. Many teachers aren’t the best, so the reason why we have such good standardized test scores is because we are rich. Since we are rich, we are able to afford tutors and the like. A small portion of the student body however is not rich, and faces many disadvantages. Overall, go to another school that has better counselors, ours kinda suck.

SMUSD provided an incredibly rigorous curriculum and intense, competitive academic environment. This competitive environment was often detrimental to students on multiple levels, such as with mental health. The district's opportunities were very beneficial and accessible, and allowed for incredible individual achievement. Recent budget cuts to the district, however, have limited these programs severely. The future of the district is honestly uncertain and looks as if students will not have much to do outside of the classroom.
I've had an excellent experience in the San Marino Unified School District (SMUSD). Through their rigorous and high quality teachers, curriculum, and resources, I feel thoroughly prepared for my adventure into college.
