I enjoy going to our Moses Lake High School because it gives students the ability to think about their future and decide what classes they need to take to do so. Our high school allows plenty of opitions for students who are interested in a particular field of study or career. They also provide the basic classes that are required for college entries and you can take the PSAT/ACT/SAT. However, even though our school provides a load of opitions, I would like to see the building get better in the future. The hallways and classrooms in my opinion are often overcrowded which makes it difficult to get to class on time. Over than that, I love it :)
During the 19-20 school year I am only a sophomore. This year and last were rough, but with little to no support from the school district and administration other than the state standards, the teachers are honestly trying their best, and they deserve much better. The athletics are decent, but the sports that aren't football, baseball and basketball, sports like bowling and track don't get much recognition. The ASB leaders only focus on the big things, and clubs like GSA are put on the back burner because the board doesn't think they matter. Security is crap, we have 3 people full time, and most incidents don't get taken care of unless its a fight. We're overcrowded, and the school board doesn't care. We the students of Moses Lake High School, current and future need a better place to learn, and not temporary fixes. The teachers need more support than they get, and deserve better than they are treated. We need a new high school, and not just a part time school. We need real changes.
Overall the school has good vibes. There are many groups, just like any other high school. The sports are great, and the school spirit is awesome. Most of the teachers here are good and have good relationships with their students. There are some teachers that don't really know how to connect with students, and sometimes make our lives harder. Some of the really good teachers I've had are Mrs. Lybbert, Mr. Mclain, Ms. Harper, and Ms. Williams. Especially Mrs. Lybbert she remodeled her classroom so it would be just for us, and she always has a great way to tie in the lesson with what happens in our daily life. My experience at the High School has been ok. Some teachers just aren't the best at teaching certain subjects, some of the students can sometimes tend to be rude, and disrespectful. The security at the high school is also alright, even though we have police officers and security guards a lot happens, like fights, and vaping.
