Washington Unified School District Reviews

The staff at my high school, needs to configure ways to stop violence on campus and restrain drugs from being brought onto our campus. As well as not target minorities on campus. They ban durags to be worn on campus, saying they are gang affiliated, and teachers have told Hispanic students to speak in English with others so they understand you aren't speaking inappropriately. I am a journalist on campus, and through multiple takes on research, our school is not the safest environment for students to feel welcome.

The three schools that I have attended in the Washington Unified School District have all been schools with great teachers, great courses and great classmates. I currently attend River City High School, and it’s diverse campus , coupled with great teachers, make the experience fantastic.
Nice informative school district. This school district also tries to keep problems to a minimum and does a great job of solving conflicts. The diversity ranges at each school and everyone's opinions are accounted for.
