Lake Stevens School District Reviews

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.
Review Lake Stevens 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.
I am so grateful that I got to go to school in Lake Stevens. From my first day of kindergarten to the last day of my senior year of high school, I was surrounded by staff and teachers who wanted to see me succeed. I had created bonds with my teachers that will last a lifetime. Not only was the emphasis on academics incredible, the school district really brings in the community of Lake Stevens. The sports programs through the high school brought the school district together with the community of Lake Stevens in an amazing way. I am so thankful for the education I received from the Lake Stevens School District. If it wasn't for the amazing district and incredible support from teachers and staff, I wouldn't be attending my dream college.
