Issaquah School District Reviews

I went to middle school and high school within the Issaquah School District. The staffs are great and the opportunities for electives are even better. I feel like you could really find your specific interest with the assortment of classes, clubs, and sports that they offer. The teachers were passionate about what they do and they faculty members were very prompt about addressing any issues. I think the only downfall is the culture diversity. I wish more diversity was offered, because minorities can be overlooked. This was something I experienced, which overtime I adjusted to. I was lucky enough to meet people who had similar backgrounds, but that doesn't mean every person will get the same opportunity. I wish there was some kind of involvement for minorities to feel more welcomed due to their backgrounds.

I have been a student of the Issaquah School District for the past eleven years. Throughout all of my years, I have had wonderful teachers who care about the success of every student. Some of my teachers have gone above and beyond to ensure that the curriculum matches the students, allowing for most students to be success in the classroom. I like how progressive the school district is, they are always trying to better the learning experience for every student. Most middle and high schools within the district has sets of iPads for teachers to use, in order to help integrate technology within the classroom and make the learning experience more relatable to the technology-focused era of children. Overall, the Issaquah School District is one of the best in providing the students with the tools and resources to receive a quality education.
I really like how close we are as a community. Being a mentor in VOICE, I am able to return to my elementary school to help kids who are struggling in school. Being able to give back to the community through our school district helps me be more involved in my community. Issaquah School District provides students with a safe haven and a no-judgement zone in school, giving students a better chance to learn at their own pace. The district considers the difficulties within each family and is able to compensate for the troubles through a community that is understanding. One thing I would like to change is the school hours. While the bell schedule has changed multiple times, changing the bell schedule almost every year is not only confusing, but it is also detrimental for the kids in school. Having to become familiar with a different bell schedule every year can be really difficult on a teenager, especially with the homework load staying constant throughout the years.
