Issaquah School District Reviews

The staff were good, homework assignments and assignments in general were harder than most schools. I recommend this school only if you are ready for challenging curriculum. Lots of good sports here that all are very good in their rankings. The school itself could use a little renovation but other than that it’s got pretty good equipment and I would say the teachers are somewhat knowledgeable on technology. There is a bit of a range on classes offered, however, they are missing some classes if you like to specialize in certain areas such as computers. Lots of good clubs offered and a good community of students.

I love my district. Always take care of our safety. When I was in High school, the police always was at the front door of the school to check students' safety. When a car accident happens, they come fast and organize the traffic. Also, stay in the school zone to check the cars speed zone, so people can not pass the speed limit. The academic is very good, teachers have passionate about their job. It's high education than another school district. There are many good activities and hobbies, like sports, theater, music concert. These make students healthy and less stress about their studies.
I am a student at the Issaquah School District. My school was Liberty High School, and I am satisfied with what I have obtained out of high school. Our school district is a very safe one, with many resources and is probably well supported by the parents of students, since the district withholds many of the higher class families. However, what I am not satisfied with is how the district is trying to change class schedules which many students, parents, and faculty from Liberty all are against, based on our proportion of students, since the other schools in the district had no opinion. Like our government, I feel the district should have listened to the voices that cared about the change, instead of making their own decisions beforehand, rendering our voices silent.
