Sweetwater Union High School District Reviews
Review Sweetwater Union High School District
The Sweetwater Union High School District is a great district overall. The several schools offer beneficial programs regarding the field of S.T.E.M. They are very involved with the futures of the students helping them prepare for colleges by encouraging them to focus on academics and applying for scholarships. The district consists of people with different ethnicities everyone coming from different backgrounds. They present students starting from 7th grade the requirements to go to the nearest four year university SDSU. The teachers are very involved in preparing their students for colleges and giving them a perspective of what to expect and how to handle studying for tests and completing large workloads. Many clubs are presenting for people including varieties of interests such as Mock Trial, Robotics, Debate, and much more. Also there are varieties of sports and divisions including varsity, JV, and novice, giving many the opportunity to participate.
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.
The only virtue of Sweetwater Union High School District was the academics that they provided however in my opinion it is far from meeting the minimum standards for students to succeed due to its neglect for electives,sports and nutrition. In my four years being in this district, I have seen the disregard for the arts for example mariachi. In middle school our music room was basically a portable "classroom," a minuscule room especially not fit for students due to the absence of an air conditioner and limited space, which situated 50+ students along with instruments and other items for the students thus the situation was deplorable. The experience was unnecessarily horrid as the room was run down and as my music teacher Mr.Ballard liked to say, it was tantamount to students being packed like "sardines in a can.” This experience was consistent in sports that were neglected, as well as the disdain for nutrition of students therefore my experience was overall not pleasant.
