South San Francisco Unified School District Reviews
I enjoy the different cultural backgrounds my district offers which makes most people in the district very open-minded when it comes to identity. The schools as a whole however, show distinct changes when it comes to funding. El Camino and South San Francisco high school receive different funding which shows through the quality of performances in the arts and sports. The school spirit is also generally low due to low funding. Many students and staff do not look forward to our school events since the outcome is either expected or a poor-funded. El Camino receives proper funding and actually can maintain a high morale because of their funding hosting better quality events then its rival high school.
I feel that the South San Francisco Unified School district has aspects that can be improved and some that exceed my expectations. I feel that the school district has a wide range of diversity and is a good representative of the bay area. I personally feel that the school district lacks a good amount of transparency with students and their family, which may cause students and families to feel unsafe going to school. There is a strong emphasis on science, and there are many opportunities you can take advantage of that I feel can open bigger doors for students in the future. I feel that the South San Francisco Unified School District should take further steps in ensuring that students are ready to enter college, because as a high school senior attending El Camino, I felt ill prepared as I begin to apply and get ready to enter college.
I like how South San Francisco Unified School District focuses on improving the learning experience for all students. I also appreciate the diversity and school culture they have, although I think they can improve on college and career preparation. Additionally, there could be more classes where the students learn about finances, mindfulness, mental health, and human rights so everyone is ready for the real world after high school and college.
