I have been attending the schools with in this district and I have always had positive feedback whenever it comes to teachers or academics. What is best about the Torrance unified school district is it a diverse city, north high school, which is the school that I go to, has the most diverse city within the high schools in the Torrance unified school district. It’s a great way to experience so many things and the clubs are even better. Anyone can participate in anything!

Throughout my time in this school district we were able to explore different interests. There are multiple clubs, activities, and classes to explore. The only bad thing is that A LOT of teachers don’t know how to teach. They have gone over the subject so much that they think it is easy to understand. It is not easy to understand if you are learning it for the first time!
Lots of on-campus cultural diversity which my school, North High School, celebrates in its annual Multicultural Week. I am able to take honors and AP classes with rational teachers that push me to learn while also understanding that I have other commitments. Counselors try to get our schedules right and with classes, we are interested in. Our underappreciated library has a plethora of books and tool at our disposal both online and on the shelves. The librarians are dedicated to providing us with everything we need. I once found a very interesting book in semi-decent condition. I enjoyed it so much I asked to be alerted should they ever need to dispose of it. This lovely story about growth and feeling as if the world is evolving to fast now sits on my shelf. All in all, I've had a great experience at North High.
