The whole district seems a little disorganized to be honest. I've personally had problems getting information our instruction due to lack of instructor/staff communication. The instructors are generally collegial, although they can also be the exact opposite. I would like to see more training on helping under-achieving students and communication.

As a senior now, my experience with Spokane Public Schools has been amazing. The teachers are very supportive and will go above and beyond to further students education and understanding on a subject. My schools principal goes out of his way to connect with everyone at school, and even takes time out of his lunch to talk with different cultured students, and those not normally with someone to talk with.
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.
