Santa Clara Unified School District Reviews

What I like about the Santa Clara unified school district is their resources towards students. Students have vast opportunities to join sports, clubs, and there are electives such as design, cooking, business, and automotive work. The school district has provided students with Chromebooks for those who do not have a computer of their own at home and has provided new textbooks this school year. Overall it is a very good school district with experienced and helping teachers and a diverse student population.

There are many opportunities at this school to get involved, from Battle of the Classes to the numerous rallies and club presentations held throughout the school year. When I entered high school, I frequently thought that I would never fit in to the new school. As time went on, however, and despite how different I was than everyone, I still made a close group of friends who accepted me, all thanks to the classes, clubs, and activities offered by this school.
One thing that I like about this school district is the amount of diversity there is at there schools. An amazing thing about this district is that they celebrate and recognize every students back round and ethnicity. For Hispanic heritage month there was a school assembly show casing traditional Hispanic dances and what it means to be Hispanic.One thing that I would like to see improve in this school district is the way they prepare students for collage. To graduate high school students need minimum requirements,but those requirements are different then the ones you need to get to collage. Which sets students up for failure. Students may be graduating high school but not many are going to collage.
