Selah School District Reviews

Selah School District provides its students a safe learning environment with staff that genuinely care about each student's success and establish personal connections to their students. However, Selah has limited itself to specific classes available to its high school students. Introducing more diverse classes would allow students more freewill to choose courses that better fit their career plans.

I like the environment of Selah high school but, i think the staff focus more on sports than they do on academics. I also think that the high school would benefit from having a open campus at lunch because the lunches are not always nutritional. I would like to see the teachers more involved in helping the students and getting everyone ready for college. Overall I think it is a good school where everyone knows everyone, like family. I am very fortunate that I got to attend Selah high school and I know I would have had as great of a high school experience anywhere else.
I have had an excellent overall experience in the Selah School District. I have been in the district ever since kindergarten and every teacher and staff member that I have been introduced to has been nothing but pleasant. Also, I have met lifelong friends through the positive school atmosphere that we have been privileged to be a part of. Some changes that could improve our school would be to find a way to engage students in the classroom and school related activities. We could carry out this plan by offering more after school activities that everyone can enjoy and making activities in the classroom more hands-on.
