If you are a student who likes to avoid cliques or the status quo, this school provides a great social environment to do your own thing, compared to the social hierarchies at Troy and Sunny Hills. This is also a great environment if you come from a lower socio-economic background and need guidance and support to apply for college and do better academically, where I feel the other high schools in the area only cater to the wealthy, athletic, and high-performing students.The AP/IB program is fantastic and has really charismatic teachers who make learning difficult subject matter fun, and the english teachers introduce literature outside of the standard material. The arts magnet program is also outstanding, and there is a variety of mediums you can enroll in. One thing I especially liked was the option to take dance for P.E freshman and sophomore years. This brought a lot of students into the higher dance programs who otherwise would have never had dance experience.

I transferred to Fullerton Union High School second semester of freshman year. I was afraid I would not fit in with the new environment and community as I am a very shy person. However, the teachers, faculty, and students were very kind to me. Unable to talk to anyone, I sat alone for lunch until my friend invited me to sit with her. The faculty are easy to talk to and assist students in every way they can. Our school provides variety of programs such as BEAST (Biology Engineering Arts Science Technology), a class that combines science with art. In addition to academics, the school campus is beautiful. This year is the 125th year of Fullerton Union High School, and the open campus features beautiful architectural structure and murals.
I love the atmosphere of Fullerton Union High School. The school is incredibly diverse in both the people and the activities and programs offered here. A student can pursue any kind of career with the courses available. The staff is very helpful, constantly informing students of opportunities to do community service or deadlines for scholarships. In my time here, I've learned how to be able to work with a group of strangers and get the task done. I feel as if I've also learned more about global issues than I would have at other schools because the students and staff are constantly discussing about them.
