Sedro-Woolley School District Reviews

I liked how each person in my school takes their job seriously, but I honestly don't find anything special about my school. The diversity is fine, the clubs are adequate, and the college readiness at my school is definitely present, but it feels like my school cares too much about going to college that going to a tech school seems only like a second choice to them. My school never mentions how much debt one college student has before they pay it all off, and it leaves clueless about how much I need to pay to go to my dream school.

I had some really amazing teachers, and quite a few who were...less than stellar. When I went to college, I realized how unprepared for it I was by my high school experience, even though I did quite well my first semester of college. My teachers did not prepare me well for the content and the "thinking for myself" aspect of college, so I learned to fake it. However, there were some teachers who would have prepared me quite well if I had gone into their field, as they taught much like a college professor and expected things from me as a student that college professors expected from me. One thing about this school district is the utter lack of diversity, not that that is the school district's fault, Sedro-Woolley just isn't a very diverse town (there is only one middle school and high school, so there is no de facto segregation happening). So my experience with other cultures continues to be fairly limited.
Well overall it is a well-rounded school. The variety of art programs, good music programs including: Band, Orchestra, and choir. Like any school it had good teachers and bad teachers. The school also had a decent language program that included, French, Spanish, and ASL. Now the negatives. The school allocated its budget in ways that were less than desirable. Wasting a large amount of the budget on superfulous security cameras that did absolutely nothing to increase security. Students who would choose to leave campus to go and do drugs or to just purely skip school we're not deterred in the slightest or stopped by these new security measures. On the matter of drugs they were quite rampant throughout the school in any given day and one who was paying attention could spot numerous drug deals.
