My experience with the Edmonds School District has been fairly great! I have enjoyed many of my teachers and developed supportive relationships. I also have a close group of supportive friends and feel included in class and extracurriculars. I wish there was more diversity among students and staff; however, I am content with the overall quality of education. I also feel like there should be an opportunity for students to take IB at other high schools besides just EWHS.

My parents raised us in a white dominant community in Lynnwood. They advised us to make friends, but our efforts were repeatedly dismissed by the neighborhood kids. We were desperate to fit in. And we hung our heads heavy when we entered a new school. To our surprise, the Edmonds School District (ESD) welcomed people like us - minorities. I felt cared for as an individual and I witnessed teachers take the time to explain to my parents how the education system works in America. I was motivated to speak and read English without feeling discouraged for being a “foreigner.” I was comforted by teachers to participate in discussions that ultimately led me to discover my own voice. ESD paved the foundation I needed to become the first college graduate in my family. But some of my peers struggled. A suggestion to improve academics is to start classes ~1-2 hours later. This could allow for 8 hours of sleep, time to eat breakfast, promote wellness/alertness, and decrease tardiness.
Edmonds School District offered various opportunities to communicate with diversity. Last year, I applied for the Edmonds Sister City Student Exchange program hosted by Edmonds School District. Through that activity, I further expand my knowledge of Japanese culture. It also impacted my dreams. With my extreme interest in the world, I dream of being a professional communicator who delivers the stories of the world through a unique lens. The student exchange program expands my understanding and contribute to this dream.
