Medical Lake School District Reviews

When I was in elementary school, I used to get bullied and so my mom and her boyfriend both moved me to the Medical Lake school district in hopes I would make friends. Instantly I felt accepted. They don't tolerate bullying whatsoever, and I continue to be amazed by how great the school district is every year. We as a school are very driven to do good in sports, clubs, and academics making us one of the best schools in Washington. Looking back on this last year, I have accomplished so much. I went to college for a while at Eastern Washington University and learned that straight A's while tackling a job and sports is very unrealistic. I also learned that if I push myself just a little bit more I can accomplish my goals (PRs in track, my first year of soccer, and schoolwork). Though Junior year was hard, I made it through and am on my way to graduating. I am so happy to be a part of the Medical Lake school district.

Being apart of the school district for 12 years I have seen much change and knows what this school district is capable of. Some may not enjoy the small town experience apart of the school but it is what I enjoyed the most out of the many years I've been here. For anyone who may want the more quiet and kind district this is the place for you. Though with my experience depending on what your field of study is I didn't feel like I had that many opportunities to experience any sort of electives or clubs that were amongst my interests.
The student body was really spirited and everyone knew each other ( mainly because it was so small). Classes were mostly engaging and relevant and teachers worked really hard with us to get us where we needed to be. However, the administration was frustrating at times, they made poor decisions concerning policy and hiring. Some of the teachers that they have brought on the the past few years have been inexperienced and lacked skill but they weren't as expensive to hire because they weren't as qualified. ASB functions were also heavily restricted and student-body fundraisers were often denied with little consideration. In all it was a good school, but for those who were heavily involved in the student leadership structure, flaws were obvious.
