The Stockton Unified School District is an average district over all. There really is no effort to change teachers that have clearly failed at doing their job and teaching students. However, in turn, students usually get a slap on the wrist when it comes to punishments, such as detention. I feel like this is unfair because most cases they disrespect and talk back to the teachers multiple times, which causes teachers to eventually give up. There were even reports about a teacher being racist, but I believe our school never cleared up the issue. That is unprofessional and very damaging in an environment where teenagers are quite impressionable. I'd like to see some changes, especially at Franklin High School because we are often referred to as a 'ghetto' school. It has potential but both students and teachers have to work towards it. More harsh punishments should be given to students when they repeatedly commit the same offense, not just adding hours onto a detention.

The teachers are very amazing. Staff like even in the cafeterias were very nice. Our principal always gives a smile in the hallway and correspond fast when something is up or happen on the campus. The school was very safe and very fun to go to. There were a lot of things to do like sports, dance, clubs and a lot more. When it comes to academics, there are also a lot of options. Classes can be taken based on how well you do on the subject and counselors can guide you through that. My counselor is very nice. She responds so fast that is why I take care of my things fast. She was there always whenever I have questions or problems with my classes or teachers. She is very understanding and patient especially when I really need her to do something for me at the last minute. I feel like the district helps our school a lot because I've never felt even once that I was missing something that I need. They take care of their schools and staff. They take care the problems of the students so much.
My experience in Stockton Unified School District (SUSD), has been both: a learning curve, and unique experience. For the most part SUSD has an overall atmosphere of family relations. In most cases, students from one campus know other students on another campus, causing the whole of Stockton schools to be somewhat intertwine. However, one thing I would like to see revised in our meek learning institutes, is the way in which our teachers teach. As a whole, teachers tend to be unauthentic in their teaching approach. One way I could see an increase in teaching, is by getting the students more involved, and trying to make the lessons more fitting for the circumstances we are facing today.
