Tumwater School District Reviews

The teachers and staff are amazing! I’ve never experienced a poor teacher. I’m constantly engaged and learning in a safe, fun environment. The only downfall of Tumwater School district was the teacher strike this past year. It caused a delay for school, but it did get faculty the raise they deserve.

I've been in this district my whole life and every year it has been better and better. The staff is amazing. At my elementary school (black lake) we had a song and this was the lyrics: black lake is the place for me. It's the greatest school in history. The staff and students are the best. Black lake beats all the rest. Black lake rules, WE ARE COOL OH I LOVE MY SCHOOL! I truly believe every word in that song, not only for black lake, but for all of the Tumwater school direct.
Tunwater High School has had an amazing impact on me for the last 4 years. I was able to get help from staff members when I needed it, be a part of the schools leadership program, and work will all the students in the school. The athletic programs are very structured and the coaches will push you to the limits. All sports teams do very well at each sporting event and are supported by all their classmates!
