Walnut Valley Unified School District Reviews
Being a student in the Walnut Valley Unified School District, I can say that this school achieves almost every category at the most average level. Now WVUSD does have some excellent aspects like its strive for education, its access to resources, and almost overwhelming involvement of presence has made going to school in this district a great thing. Sadly there are many things that it lacks, for example, diversity. The WVUSD has a very strong Asian American presence with them outnumbering other students 4-1. Other things include underfunded facilities and a lack of college readiness preparation.
In general, I believe that WVUSD is a generally average school district. I appreciate all of the opportunities that have been given to me, but as many districts do, WVUSD has many major flaws. Discrimination among minorities is constantly an unsolved issue. Students are heard using vulgar language against people of color, people with special needs and LGBTQIA+ individuals. Many people have held complaints and concerns about the staff at the district. Many people feel like the counselors are not trained to properly handle students with mental health issues. Another issue to the district is the academic stress that a majority of staff encourage. Me, including many others have lost countless hours of sleep to meet the expectations of teachers. I think the environment of the school can be fixed over the course of a few months, but I feel that many problems are swept under the rug and only brought to attention by students.
Overall a good academic environment. Friendly, social, and safe! Many opportunities for students to choose from and students can gain free tutoring if needed. Great teachers, clean classrooms, and a good use of technology. Great surrounding of a motivational education as well as a fun social experience.
