Lake Washington School District Reviews

People leaving the reviews must be the ones who's school actually receive money. Our school is over crowded we have 4 kindergarten classes and only 3 classrooms on top of that the classes are quite large there are 24 kids in my sons class. Meanwhile they are building a new choice school over in sammamish which alleviates over population how? Not at at all! We can't get a portable. On top of this our school says it offers services but not sure to whom they offer them too. My son's pediatrician, occupational therapist and psychologist all recommended an IEP or 504 along with his teachers but not until I wrote threatening letters after 2 years of trying did he actually get a 504 which basically changed nothing anyways. Lake Washington schools are a joke!

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.
