Issaquah School District Reviews

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.
Review Issaquah School District
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.
what I personally enjoyed from attending the issaquah school district was that it provided a higher sense of how important academics are. The schools are highly funded and the community is very involved. children education truly came first in this district. I had many options for classes to take in high school along with just as many extra curricular clubs and sports. I will however say the diversity throughout the community is not as diverse as I would like to see, but overall I rate the issaquah school district high.
