My experience at Waterford Unified School District is good I been attending since preschool. The teachers are good at teaching. The teachers is what I like about the district as well the staff. The thing I would like to see be changed is the way they organize events because sometimes when the school does something for the students, it can get a little chaotic.

In my experience, the Waterford Unified school district is welcoming.Many teachers are nice and will take their time to help with things you do not understand or need to improve on.If there is a problem, it is fairly solved and everyone tries to do the best they can. They have made attempts to make the school safer based on student needs. If you have an issue, they will do the best they can. Lately there are been more fights, but the administration has handled them appropriately.
I have 3 years living in Waterford, California and I love how the city is because it is very safe and quiet, the people are very friendly and have the best schools. I study at waterford high school and my class has had the highest results in the CAASPP exam among others, has the best teams and the coaches are very understanding and assure you that you will have fun.
