I believe I am quite lucky to be a student at Glacier Peak as the school environment is very positive; the staff, teachers, and students are mostly warm and welcoming. Our school strongly promotes school spirit and we are encouraged to actively participate in clubs, go to football games, and wear our school colors during spirit week. The teachers and staff are always available when help is needed, and counselors are there to guide and advise students on career paths. Our principle is very passionate about maintaining a safe school environment and keeping students engaged in academics and extracurriculars. Overall, Glacier Peak is a wonderful school that welcomes all students no matter what ethnicity, gender, background, etc. and provides them with a wide variety of opportunities.

What we actually learn at Glacier Peak is pretty average and on par for most other high schools in the Snohomish area, but the teachers themselves elevate the education. I have been fortunate enough to have amazing teachers that have taught the content in a way that really resonates with most students. The career center has helped me personally in finding a handful of amazing scholarships that make college a possibility. Our principle is the best in the state hands down. Our theatrical programs and bands are award winning. Our sports programs are always top of the state, all while being taught amazing morals and life lessons. Overall a great high school for the area.
I honestly loved Glacier Peak! It was super welcoming and everyone was very supportive and friendly. There was also equality there and all subjects, even the arts, were taken very seriously.
