Tempe Union High School District Reviews
I attend Desert Vista High School, esteemed for our prestigious academics and high standards. Though my school has faced controversy for a scandal surrounding irresponsible young women in 2016, we have overcome criticism from the public and demonstrated resilience. Tempe Union offers students every possible opportunity to ensure we are prepared for higher education, or whatever the next step of life may be. Every single teacher strives to assist their pupils to the best of their ability, despite being strained for time and energy after going above and beyond to grade papers and spend one on one time with us. Staff consistently encourages the student body to represent the community in our actions through community service and involvement, responsibility, and acceptance. My presence in the Tempe Union district has been challenging but ultimately, I am extremely lucky to have had such amazing support systems and experience.
I went to high school in the tempe district all four years. During my time in high school, I got the opportunity to meet really amazing people and learn from really educated minds. I appreciate the curricular that were offered at school. I think it gave everyone the opportunity to find out what the like to do, and to be surrounded by people who also enjoy doing the same thing as you. A few things I would change would be some of the curriculum we are taught, especially seniors. I think they should educate more on adult life experiences and teach you about credit cards and taxes and making a living for yourself financially. I would also have administration check their priorities because, dress code isn't as important as the mental health and stability of students.
While there are definitely things I would like to change with the district, I have had a decent experience so far. Each student is given plenty of opportunities to join sports, clubs, volunteer, and learn. There is definitely I wide variety of classes for everyone to take, some you would never have thought about. However, we are missing out on some amazing classes that used to be apart of every high school and while the teachers are paid more than others, they are definitely not appreciated enough and the superintendents office definitely needs some tweaking.
