North Kitsap School District Reviews

Most awful experience. They denied my son IEP services even after he was diagnosed by the school psychologist and an outside psychologist with ADHD, dysgraphia, and dyscalculia. I had to hire someone to help me through the process of getting an IEP. It should not have been this hard. He was failing all of his classes and had missed over 70 days of school but he still did not qualify. The lack of sympathy from the staff (not all of them) was disheartening. How can they be educators when they cannot sympathize with the children and families that need extra help.
We ended up selling our home and moving out of the district because it was so awful.

North Kitsap School District is great! I have been in the district since i was in first grade and have never had any issue with the district. They have great schools with great people. The schools get you prepared for college, the sports are great and competitive. The atmosphere of the schools are good and i highly recommend this school district for someone looking for a great district to enroll their child in or work for.
Overall, my experience at the North Kitsap School District has been good. They have a strong community involvement within the school and great athletic programs. Most teachers care about their student's education and setting each student up to succeed.
