West Contra Costa Unified School District Reviews
The teachers from WCCUSD understand their students' perspectives mostly due to their similar backgrounds, experiences and perspectives. This makes for perfect teachers as they are understanding, kind and considerate. However, our community as a whole lacks proper resources and financial support to offer their students with challenging courses and career readiness opportunities that better prepare us for our future.
WCCUSD has many resources devoted to its students. The student to tablet ratio is 1-1 and this allows for technologically advanced classrooms. In secondary, there are many Advanced Placement tests whose tests are free for the students to take motivating many kids to take APs. WCCUSD is located in a place where many of its students live in poverty, because of this the school district also has a few downfalls. Lack of teachers, which means bigger classrooms. Arts programs cut because of funding problems. Many schools have had to close because they are no longer financially capable to run anymore. They have millions of dollars in debt and it does put a strain on the level of education a child can receive.
The teachers are nice. We are well funded by Chevron so we get tablets and other necessities. We have a very nice dance program. The school is just recently built and it is beautiful! However, we do not have any security guards on staff at our school.
