I really like that Lake Stevens High School is a very welcoming and friendly place where you feel comfortable and secure. Teachers care about you besides academics, and try to make real bonds with you. There are very friendly staff members that are always there to collaborate with whatever you need. There are also many fun clubs to join! Extracurriculars are one thing to check out, there are so many options. One thing that I would suggest is maybe having more accessibility to other fun learning platforms and websites which allow students to learn in all kinds of different ways, whatever they feel most comfortable with. Other than that, I think Lake Stevens High School is really great!

My experience at Lake Stevens High School has been amazing. The community, clubs, sports even the teachers amazingly are awesome. The teachers at Lake Stevens High School, don't treat you like your like everyone else. They treat you like your a different person as well as the admins and cops there Everyone in all grade levels act like a family. The sports in Lake Stevens tend to always go to state each year. Matter of fact this year our girls soccer team won it all! Woo! But anyway, our school needs to work on one thing. And that's food. Wish they changed the type of pizza or fries. Make the fries curly on Wednesday or something? Lake Stevens High School is even remodeling itself to make it more modern and give it a more light full/cheerful theme. Other than that, every single person in Lake Stevens High School is awesome. I still haven't seen a single person sit by themselves during lunch.
Lake Stevens High School offers high-quality education. I graduated in 2015, and had positive and enriching experiences in many of my classes, although not all were impressive. In general, instructors are informed, enthusiastic about learning, and engaged with their students. There are also many extra curricular opportunities, with a variety of sports and arts groups and activities, clubs, committees, events, and more, catered to a variety of interests. One flaw that was prevalent in my time at Lake Stevens was a lack of support for diverse students, particularly Queer students. Myself and several other students participated in a GSA, which did not have many members, and support for Queer students was almost entirely lacking outside of the club. I did not feel comfortable as a Queer students there, and myself and other Queer students experienced bullying and other difficulties. I hope that the situation has improved since I graduated in 2015.
