Lake Stevens School District Reviews

Overall the academic programs at Lake Stevens school district are great. A large number of AP courses are available, as well as interesting electives like Forensics and Biotechnology. The sports programs at the school are very good as well, and the luch is as good as one expects at a public school. The course requirements are a bit stringent, so one can only really do fun electives if they are on top of their schoolwork. Also, the new faculty has been decreasing the 'fun' assemblies and traditions as of late, but this is not too much of a detriment as it is only at the high school.

Lake Stevens School District has a balance of good and bad. Fantastic teachers, a decent education, nice high school atmosphere; the school spirit and the quirky teachers make learning fun. My 9th grade teacher was my sassy grandmother, 10th grade history teacher a quick-witted uncle. Some of my teachers truly cared about my education and encouraged me. A home-school option allowed me to escape the tortures of middle school. But the district also could be careless. My 4th grade teacher kept me in from recess/library visits due to my ADHD pulling me behind. My elementary school councilor’s idea of a solution for social issues was "watch Hannah Montana". Scoliosis destroyed my back and I was forced to struggle through PE to get an A. This same district allowed my brother to get bullied and only did something about it when his arm got broken. The mid-high had such an oppressive atmosphere that I got depression at the end of 9th grade. So that’s the good and bad of my school district.
Firstly at lake stevens high school, there is not enough room for the growing community. Hallways are crowded, classes are overflowing into portables, the senior section is half gym floor during assemblies, etc. There are approximately 1200 students at lake stevens high school. However small the facilities are, the student body makes up for with school spirit though. The super fans fill up the stadium at football games and there is a sea of purple and gold. I have loved my time at the lake stevens high school and I was well prepared for it from the district.
