West Contra Costa Unified School District Reviews
As an Alumni from Hercules High School, I can honestly say that there were many problems and not too many successful solutions. They are quick to fire teachers with little to no evidence. There were even rumors about teachers having affairs with students! I was taken out of class, I was questioned by lawyers because of this falsely accused rumor of a teacher. All in all, I believe that there needs to be a better system to decide whether a teacher gets fired or not.
West Contra Costa Unified School District is a fun and engaging community from various community events such as ones where we are given a backpack and school supplies to food drives, it allows it's people in the community to feel connected and a sense of help by their peers. In addition to having this help students as a whole are greeted with plenty of opportunities for pursuing post secondary institutions, and not just school related activities but resources like mental health workshops, crisis & suicide lines, homeless help. W.C.C.U.S.D as a whole really does help and care about the student body but with that being said a monster budget cut in the district as a whole has cut back on the amount of teachers that work at schools not to mention the cut back on after school programs that are crucial for students who's parents aren't able to pick them up right away after school. For that reason and other minor problems I rated my experience a 4 out of 5 star rating.
I wish we could have a bigger option of food choices, like foods we like! Also, I wish there would be more bathrooms unlocked and available that are clean and stocked with the necessary supplies.Overall, I have had a good experience the last 3 years at De Anza High School.
