Vacaville Unified School District Reviews

Currently in the Vacaville unified school district I am going into my senior year at Will C. Wood high school. The school has given me many great advantages such as my joining the Vacaville early college high school program in freshman year and taking college courses through solano with free books, tuition and units. This program was and still is amazing leading me to be one semester away from an AA degree in biology at Solano community college upon graduation. I joined the swim team junior year and the it has been nothing less than amazing. My favorite thing about VUSD is the staffs general interest in your success with a few bad apples in the mix that I personally did not experience too much of. Something I would definitely like to see change is the blinding intensity of some of the AP courses. Certain classes such as AP US history require a relentless 1,400 flash cards while they rarely use them just to get the point across that the expectations are higher for college credit.

I have attended Vaca High all 4 years, it’s a good school with lots of spirit. The biggest sport is football, if you are looking for a football scholarship the coaches will help guide you, they are the best. The teachers want to see you succeed, they use their lunches and personal time to help you study or get extra work done. You will have plenty to do, so many different clubs and activities, from Religious Club, Sports Clubs, Ethnicity Clubs or any club you want to create theres something for everyone. I really enjoyed my four years at Vaca High I’m sad this is my last year.
I am very honored to have been attending schools in Vacaville Unified School District since preschool. Vacaville Unified School District ensures that all schools are safe and are a great environment to be in. They do their best to make sure that all students are prepared to go off to college. The teachers are always kind and helpful whenever you speak with them. They make sure that no student is struggling and give their all. The campuses I have been on are clean and a safe environment for children to learn in. There are a wide variety of courses available for students to take based on their interest and strengths. They have challenged me academically and pushed me to be a better student.I love Vacaville Unified School District and am very pleased to have received an education from them from preschool up to my last year of high school.
