It is an excellent school! Nice staff, student, and people. People always cares about staff, students, and people. This school is very peaceful and feel very safe. Bad crime is rare in this school based on my thoughts. The staff promised to makes students to success in their life if students are hard-working and being positive. Mean teachers are actually good teachers, because they are really push students harder to give them a chance to be successful. There are many sports you can play in Medical Lake High School. Bad thing about this school is too much homework like everyone said.

Overall, I believe that Medical Lake is very tight-knit community and there is always someone there to help you when you are in a tough situation. My experience might be different than someone new to the city, but I have grown up here and made the closest friends I ever will. All the sports programs and music programs are very supported by the district and are a lot of fun. If I had to change something, I would change some of the staff. There are a few staff members that handle situations in a bad way and give off a certain attitude towards some students that might make some uncomfortable or upset. Other than that, I am happy to be a student at Medical Lake High School.
Most of the staff at this school is amazing! The community is a wonderful one to be a part of, but the students at this school often lack motivation.
