Vail Unified School District Reviews
I have attended the Vail School District from kindergarten all the way up to my senior year of high school. The Vail School District is heavily based on academics rather than sports. They prepare you well for college and offer a wide range of honors and college based courses. In addition, they offer CTE elective courses such as: photography, art, and web development. As well as JTED courses designed for students to explore majors and careers in pursuit of goals after high school graduation. All Vail School District campuses are clean and outside friendly. However, one thing I would like to see change about the Vail School District is keeping politics out of the classroom. I believe that the teachers should teach the curriculum and keep their political views to themselves. Once a teacher interjects their political view into the conversation, all learning comes to a halt. And once that communication barrier is established, it’s hard to eliminate the lingering effects.
The Vail School District had amazing teachers that actually took the time to sit down and talk and work through things individually. The programs offered were very diverse and there seemed to be something for everyone. I had the unique experience of attending both the Vail School District as well as the Tucson Unified School District, and the quality of education is vastly different. I was in TUSD for 2 years and by the time I got back to Vail, I was behind in Math and Science and it took a year of hard work to catch back up. One thing I think the Vail School district needs to work on is expanding. More and more students are beginning to attend and it fills up the classrooms quickly. Thankfully though, they're starting to build more facilities to meet the demands.
Vail is decent, I have lived in the Vail Unified School District for all of my school experience, kindergarten through 12th grade. It is a good district honestly, compared to others in Arizona and the areas surrounding it, it is definetly the best district in the Tucson area, and pima county, but they do lack in some aspects. Such as knowledge on where money and funds should go and also what opportunities should be invested in. On many occasions principles have dealt with situations terribly, resulting in angered parents and caused even more problems. Their problem solving needs some work, it is not the worst but really could do some improving.
