Edmonds Woodway High School Reviews

Overall, I'd say the school has a good atmosphere: the majority of staff are kind and respectful, as are most of the students. I've had a good experience with the counselors, and the IB coordinators (current and future) are excellent!

However, I've had a very mixed experience with the teachers. Especially in freshman and sophomore years, there are some teachers who I feel do not push their students enough, leaving them feeling bored, frustrated, and unprepared. However, most of the junior and senior teachers I know are talented and passionate (the IB teachers in particular).

I wish that the school would take greater efforts to make sure that all teachers are giving their students the best education and experience possible. Letting some teachers continue running classes as they do is frankly unfair to the students who truly want to learn. I think that an anonymous survey at the end of the year would be an excellent way to let students share their thoughts on how teachers are doing.

Edmonds Woodway high school is an institution which welcomes all students regardless of academic level. The great thing about it is the opportunity it provides for all students. High achieving students can take part in the IB program or save money through running start or take regular classes without shame. The culture around athletics is alive and energetic at the school, students who wish to achieve through their physical talent have the opportunity to do so. The separated "A" building at the school specializes in art classes, allowing creative minds to shine.
However, the facilities need improvement, equipment in the science labs and books have been reused for far too many generations now. Furthermore, the college readiness at the school needs to be much more prevalent within the curriculum. Very little time is devoted to preparing kids for college applications.
I've had a wonderful experience at Edmonds-Woodway. I think that's partially due to the friends I've made, but I also feel comfortable in the environment. Most of the teachers are helpful and attentive, and many respond to emails within a few hours. The staff are generally friendly, though I know a few staff members and teachers that are difficult to work with and don't give students straight answers. I've had the most issues with the math department, where I've had teachers who prefer to tell students to teach themselves the material and will only answer questions vaguely. However, I think the science and English departments are particularly strong. These teachers are always willing to help students, whether it be through review sessions, study buddies, or opportunities to redo assignments that haven't gone well. Overall, I think Edmonds-Woodway is a great school that is worth attending.
