Tustin Unified School District Reviews

The administrators have no compassion for their students and are very political. The entire district is organized and constantly changing the school regulations which don’t work well for school to adapt to. Many teachers are chosen for their Masters degree or qualifications, not their ability to explain or teach concepts to their students. The math department and the English department is made of many very intelligent people however they lack to skills to teach students from the perspective of a first-time learner. Education is not a programming/sterile task it is an experience both of learning and applying knowledge. Very few understand this. Too many administrators and district personnel have degrees in educational management, but lack the ability to solve real-world problems with compassion and well-rounded thinking.

My experience at Beckman has been very enjoyable. Of course, as a teenager, there is bound to be ups and downs, but the quality of environment and teaching at Beckman has remained consistent. The attitude of always striving for more has motivated me to pursue my passions, and to never give up. I'm thankful for my time there, and will always look back with a positive eye. I'm proud to be a student of Beckman!
