Lake Stevens School District Reviews

I had a great experience at Lake Stevens High School. I felt as though the admin, staff, and teachers around me genuinely cared for me as a student and person. In addition, I was given a multitude of academic and athletic experiences, as well as clubs and groups. Despite all of this, the school fails to bring spotlight to groups besides the athletic teams. I am an athlete, so I was in the "spotlight" more often. Those students who were extremely gifted in something else, such as art, did not receive the same recognition that I did as an athlete. The school does realize this discrepancy, and are choosing to actively bring light to those who have not gotten it in the past.

Lake Stevens School District is a progressive school that has fit me very well. Every year in this district, I have had at least one teacher that truly cared about every student and tried their best to ensure every student had the best time possible in their class. The high school has been the best for me so far, as the students are treated almost as adults and they try very hard to provide great assemblies and dances for the students. Many students have agreed that Cavelero, Lake Stevens school district's mid-high school, was the worst of the schools although, it was still an okay learning place. Cavelero had an off putting working environment and wasn't as inclusive as the other schools in the district. At Cavelero, the food was lacking and students bonded by making fun about it whereas at the high school the food is great.
Overall, my experience with the Lake Stevens School District has been good. I have enjoyed the pride taken in the clubs and sports by the staff and students. A lot of passion and involvement are put into these aspects of the school makes the atmosphere enjoyable for a student. On another note, a good number of teachers at the schools get away with careless teaching and a lack of effort. The school district is so big that many things get overlooked that is not the face of the school, like sports and the arts.
