Lake Washington School District Reviews

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!
Review Lake Washington School District
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.
I thought that the academics had a good range that you were able to choose from. If you wanted a more rigorous class, you could take AP classes or honors classes and if you wanted easier classes, then the normal classes sufficed. However, I'm not really sure if the AP classes that I took prepared me for college or not because I'm actually learning more and new things in college even though I already learned all of it in my AP classes. I'm learning better in college than I did in high school. The school was pretty clean, although the food selection wasn't the best that it could be since they had to change the types of food that they were selling us because of Michelle Obama's healthy food act that she went through with. I'd say that there was a lot of diversity, lots of people from different parts of the world in my school. Overall, I'd say that this is a pretty good school district and would recommend it for people that are just moving into the area.
