Puyallup School District Reviews

What I like about the Puyallup School district is how available the teachers are to help you in any way. Staying after school just to help you with something you may have been confused on, or even coming in before school to retake a test. Teachers especially at Rogers High School make an effort and see potential in every student that walks through the doors. Although the staff is great, there are some things the Puyallup School District that can be improved. One thing that I would like to see improvements in communication with the students on college and Scholarships.

I liked the opportunities to be a part of clubs and to be in the running start program in the Puyallup school District. I joined the FCCLA (Family, Career and Community Leaders of America) club which allowed me to help the community and to feel thankful for what I have. I wasn't a part of the running start program its a great way for students to get there associates degree to save money and to pursue their career goals. The one things not only Puyallup school district should change is college readiness. After graduating High school, I didn't know what to expect in college because there we no opportunities for high schoolers to have the experience of college readiness. There AP ( Advanced placement) which were classes to help students be read for college, but in order to be apart, you have to take a test, if you don't at least 4 out of 5 then you don't get college credit.
There has been different schools I've attended in other states but Rogers High School has got to be my favorite environment to be in. All of the staff here are so caring and welcoming. Rogers HS has many different options in courses. Ceramics, photography, design, choir, orchestra, painting, etc. Teachers are most welcoming and kind here. They really attend to support students and things they really need help with. They care about students mind sets and advises them to do good things in life. There are many other amazing events outside of a school day to attend. Our sports teams such as football, lacrosse, basketball and volleyball. Rogers has school spirit unlike any other. It sure did change my mind when I attended a lacrosse game. Before coming to Rogers, I was not a fan of school spirit. But I feel a more positive environment here and I couldn't think of any other school that would be better to attend my senior year.
