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!

Having spent 7 years in the school district, I can safely say that this is certainly one of the best in Washington state. The teachers at my particular high school, Tesla STEM High School, are all engaging and easy to get along with. In addition to that, there are plenty of opportunities outside of school provided by the district that help to garner new experiences. The majority of the students are very friendly, which applies to almost any school in this district, and the faculty are always very helpful. Ultimately, the only downside I have noticed is the food quality and the lack of resource maintenance in regards to materials used for science labs or educational tasks.
Lake Washington School District is nothing special. I currently attend Lake Washington High School and it has been nothing special. My experience has been not great but not terrible. I have found that I spent my time just going to school and then coming home. I never enjoyed coming to school but I never dreaded it either. The classrooms are nice because our school is newer than others and many of the teachers are good at teaching but they aren't inspiring. The counselors have been much help but the administration seems to only care about the graduation rate at our school which has made things a little difficult because there is no feeling that they actually care about our learning.
