This school district is alright in my books. Although I haven’t experienced other school districts besides the fact that I have distant cousins who get earlier AND longer breaks.... WCUSD has always struck me as wonderfully connected, hard working, resourceful, and even caring. In the midst of the deadly virus, WCUSD has strongly stressed online learning opportunities and prioritized the mental and physical health of both staff and students over mandatory curriculum/work. Moreover, some of our most famous and successful alumni have payed my West Covina High school a visit- offering not only their experience but service also.

As a senior now, I can reflect back on how great of an experience West Covina High School brings to students of all ages. In other words, the ecosystem is practically friendly and lively with many clubs to join, and participate in. As well as their beining sports to where a student may want to embark on or to just meet new people. Being so, the school spirit is amazing with rallies all year long, dances, and even rivalry football games. However, what makes our school interesting is that all the fun activities are organized by student factually. Furthermore, teachers are willing to help students in need at any cost giving the circumstance at hand. In spite of this, tutoring hubs have been created to benefit the needs of hardworking students who may need an extra push academically. All in all, the high school experience of a bulldog has practically prepared me for the future in many ways that relate to responsibility, work ethic, and participation in one's own community.
I have been in WCUSD for my entire school career. I love how our district is involved in the community, as many school events become community events. The one thing I would like to see differently is the constant change of administration at the schools. In my three years of middle school, I had three different principals. During high school, our admin has been switched around so many times that at this point I do not know who's who anymore, and I do not like that feeling.
