Chiawana High School has the best environment ever! The teachers are very knowledgeable and dedicated to student success. I would say the English, Math, and Music departments are Chiawana's strong suits. Sports teams excel and the facilities they use are top notch. For being the largest school in Washington, it is kept up with well and is very clean. All of the students have positive attitudes and are very friendly, which makes the atmosphere so fun and productive!

Chiawana high school is an average high school, but I think it can obviously improve. The food they serve is terrible, sometimes its very cold or just disgusting even sometimes its burned. Chiawana has a lot of gangs that make kids not feel safe since we cant say certain words or dress certain colors because the gangs will jump you. The staff is pretty good except some teachers that look at you weird. There is a lot of discrimination between the students. The white kids feel superior than anyone else. There's a lot of safety concerns since kids are always bringing guns and knives and matches to school. The bathrooms are always full and smell like weed. But the sports and clubs are pretty good and pretty diverse.
My teachers and administrators have been very helpful throughout my high school career. Last year, we began having advisory classes periodically to increase the graduation rate by helping students prepare for after graduation. However, most coursework for these is college centered, even though I am in a military class. The college information is also not very helpful. Most simply encourage scholarship applications, but give no reference on where to look. They also only focus on local colleges and universities, regardless of the fact that a high percentage of my peers plan to go out of state for college. Giving broader options would help improve the advisory program.
