I really like this school district and I really enjoy going here! I think that the district has very good resources for the students to use. However, I think that the school could improve its level of diversity.

I like the environment here: This is kind of a college town, with large universities here, like Gonzaga University, Eastern Washington University, Washington State University and Whitworth University. Moreover, it is not far from Seattle, which is where University of Washington is. It is common to have connections with these great universities, making it easier to enter an awesome college.
I like the atmosphere because it really feels like teachers and administrators care about their students. However, there are many teachers who are incompetent at teaching, whether because of their attitude, lack of experience, lack of understanding, or just general incompetence. There have also been multiple threats made against multiple schools over the last few years which is not reassuring towards the safety aspect of district.
