Review Sweetwater Union High School District
My experience with Sweetwater Union High School District has been positive throughout the years. There is diversity is great! You can see different walks of life from every race. One thing I would change is the starting school time. In my experience a lot of people are always late because either they have to walk to school or it is just hard to get to class on time, so I believe changing the school start time will benefit the students.
Sweetwater Union High School District has a variety of many great things. One of them being the interest and involvement they have with the students. We are all college ready. The students in this district not only advance with their academics each year, but also increase their curiosity about learning bigger and better ideas. But the main reason for which the students are involved, is on behalf of the great teachers throughout the district. They prepare us for class tests, AP exams, and also walk us through life experiences and life lessons. This is a great district to be apart of. The faculty in all schools focus on the future and goals of the students. Our district is looked highly among all the other districts; we also have very high test scores. This goes to show that our teachers are so invested with our academic lives, that we score high on our exams. Therefore, that allows all the students to have more opportunities within their high school career and applying for colleges.
