Yakima School District Reviews

My experience overall has been a positive one. The school I go to, Eisenhower High School has a wide range of clubs and sports which I like. Education could have some improvement, but I feel like I had the luck to get good teachers for the most part. I also like the many oppurunities that Eisenhower (and Davis) offer to not let their students fall behind as well as college preparation opportunities

The Yakima School District offers a lot of different opportunities despite your race ethnicity or income level. Personally, I have had the chance to see how helpful teachers are when you are a second language student.
While I’ve been gifted in academics achievements, I have always been capable enough to thrive both at home and in school. Though my parents spend their days working, the support of my high school teachers and siblings have helped me to succeed. I continued to take honors courses until the end of my sophomore year, along with my involvement in the MECHA club, and the 1,000 pound club. As a result of my hard work I received many academic achievement awards all throughout high school. HAAP is on that list, and the Dean’s list at YVC. As a very well determined student, I am sure to make of well use the achievement of this scholarship if taken into consideration.
The Yakima School district strives to encourage and push each child forward in their education. Most teachers pursue each individuals needs, and works not only to teach academics, but also social/life skills. Of course, they are not perfect, but they o continue to strive to grow and become better each day.
