My experience with VCUSD has been mediocre for a couple reasons. First, the schools I have attended were very limited in terms of electives and extracurricular activities. I currently attend Vallejo High School and there are not many electives that students can choose from. I would like to see more options for students with electives. Another issue I have had with VCUSD is the process of transferring. On different occasions of trying to move schools, VCUSD has made it clear that they take too much time and do not usually give the answers you want.

Living in Vallejo all my life I got to understand how it feels to live and attend school. The Vallejo City Unified School District has an average academic experience as well as a large diversity. Safety and College Readiness worries me when dealing with Vallejo's Cities Unified School District, many areas in Vallejo students/people have gotten shot. I as a student want to attend college and would like to have areas where I can be prepared for college, in Vallejo there is not much of that.
The Vallejo City Unified School District is among the most diverse in terms of students, staff, and families. The staff in the schools care and strive for the improvement and success of their students. However, just like in many other districts, there is a shortage of teachers and other crucial staff members. As a student, this is very unfortunate because we are not receiving the same education as those who have teachers. Nonetheless, despite our lack of teachers, students still have access to the resources in school and in the community.
