Santa Ynez Valley Union High School District Reviews
I really enjoy the environment at school! There are so many enjoyable staff members and they strive to make us succeed. I do feel like I am lucky because I have a smaller school, under 1000, and it allows me to get to know everyone better. There are many outstanding programs, like ceramics. It allows me to be more creative. Overall I really enjoy going to school!
I had a fairly good experience here. Small school with pretty good teachers. Administration is unprofessional and unhelpful. I had a good educational experience however the social atmosphere was hostile and administration had little control over the students and did not act on issues such as bullying. Athletic Involvement definitely gets you ahead here but academics are still a large focus.
Santa Ynez Valley Union High School was a fantastic time in my life, and prepared me beautifully for the classes in my undergraduate degree (on which I am currently working). I graduated in the class of 2015 with high honors in the top eight percent, and very much consider the school to have put me on the fast track to academic success. However, my only real problem with the school was that there were two clear and starkly separated paths to graduation. There was the honors/AP route, and the CP route. The only thing I would like to see changed in the school is for a greater level of concern to be given to CP route students. I would very much like to see teachers equally as talented as those prioritized to the AP and honors classes put to teach CP or average level classes so that those students that may be struggling can be given the same academic edge that I and many other AP students were given.
