I’m currently a sophomore at Pasco High School and I really love this school. I went to Chiawana for about 2 months and I never felt like I fit in to that schools since not everyone was friendly and it’s not super diverse. In Pasco High School the environment is so much better and I feel more welcomed. Also, Pasco High School offers a lot of clubs that go along with careers like business, marketing, photography, etc. it also encourages kids to go out and help the community. The diversity is very high here and everyone comes from different backgrounds although, the academics at this school are pretty average, the teachers and counselors try to help you out with problems you may have but some of them are not very good at teaching but they try and administration can is pretty rude sometimes. The food is pretty average but they’re are a variety of foods you can choose from.

It's a good school but some teachers dont teach good. There is a good variety of food for the students to choose from when its lunch time. There's many teachers who are good at teaching and actually care about their students education. Most of the staff however are not friendly, especially the ladies on the main office who check you in or out. Student participation in games and shows is big, most students enjoy cooperating and cheering for others. Classes like cooking, woodshop, photography and many more are very helpful for students and actually help them learn new things. Counselors there are helpful and caring for their students. They help you with almost everything that you need help with.
I had some good years at Pasco High. Classes are generally not hard unless you take advanced or college-level classes. Lunches are iffy, but breakfasts weren't so bad. Lots of clubs and sports teams you can join. School pride is usually only expressed at sports games and assemblies. Some teachers are what you would expect, but I have to say there are a few good teachers at Pasco, you just have to find them.
