San Rafael City High School District Reviews

The school board does a poor job of distributing funding, they spend way too much money on making the school look good from the outside rather than supporting the students on the inside. We don't need fancier buildings or more modern furniture, we need teachers that are passionate and involved and actually care about our learning, and we need smaller class sizes and more communication between the administration, the school board, and the teachers and students.

The San Rafael City High Schools have a very diverse student body! The issue with these schools is how geared it is towards only white students, the food is terrible, the faculty does not represent the student diversity (and some are blatantly racist) and the list can go on.
I had a really solid group of friends all throughout high school and a lot of good teachers, the only issue I had with it was some of the student population. The majority of the students were of southern american descent (some of them having just crossed the border), and they showed no respect not only for the school, but also for the staff and their peers. They had no respect for others and acted toddlers, throwing stuff in the hallway while we were walking to class, wetting towels and throwing them everywhere in the bathroom, driving recklessly in the parking lots, and even hitting my friends brand new car while having no insurance at all.
