Lake Washington School District Reviews

Lake Washington school district as a whole has been a good experience. The majority of teachers and staff that I have encountered make a good effort to help students succeed. Most buildings have been updated or are brand new, though there are at least one or two schools that have not been renovated. I would say that it is a very safe area so Lake washington school district is also on the safe side. I have not partaken in school sports myself, but I have not heard anything bad from those I know who are on a lwsd school sports team.

I loved how much they care for their students and staff. Lake Washington is constantly giving surveys to staff and students, in order to ensure our well being. They have made changes to the schedule, such as adjusting study hall times and styles, and adding another period onto the day, in order to give student the biggest opportunity for academic success. Not only that, but the my school in particular, Eastlake, is so focused on school spirit and the happiness of students.
I have been a member of the Lake Washington School District since 1st grade. In that time, I have attended 4 different schools, and I can't say enough good things about the teachers and the academic programs they are pioneering to create the best opportunities possible for students!
