South Pasadena Unified School District Reviews
Overall, I really think South Pasadena Unified School District gives its students a wonderful environment, regardless if it's academic or social. Most classes are challenging and engaging, motivating student participation and increasing student school spirit. Of course, nothing is perfect. The cafeteria food is mediocre and a few teachers do not seem as dedicated as others. However, the good aspects definitely outweigh the bad, making SPUSD a wonderful place for students.
Overall I enjoyed my time at South Pasadena High School, as it had quite a few excellent teachers who I thought prepared me for AP exams and general knowledge on the subject. The only gripe I have is that the school counselors are lacking in guidance, as they need to accommodate many students with little time in between for each student.
South Pasadena is a wonderful community with great students and an abundance of parent involvement. At the high school, sports are not a priority for the administration and there is a lack of school spirit. The district is home is many outstanding teachers and clubs and activities are strong at all age levels.
