Most of the teachers were very friendly and always willing and ready to help students. I participated in the NJROTC program, and absolutely loved it! The instructors were awesome and the relationships with other ROTC students was life-changing!

I started at sequim schools from preschool until 6th grade and although they had a larger budget and nicer equipment, the students were absolutely terrible. I was bullied every single day as was a lot of the other 6th graders. But moving to Port Angeles school district was a very good thing for me. I made friends very fast here and never have felt unsafe. The teachers are (for the most part) well educated professionals who are very good at connecting with the students and know how to do their jobs well. I have teachers from my past year at the high school who stop me in the halls to ask me how my day is going and genuinely care. Port Angeles high school may not have the budget or the fancy equipment or rich kids, but it makes up for it in its culture
I like how small and personal everything is at Port Angeles High School, allowing a lot of recognition and involvement in student class activities. On the other hand, important issues regarding the betterment of the student body, such as the upkeep on the school's construction (it's very outdated) and bullying codes of conduct, are brushed to the side, and instead, all of the funding and focus goes to the music programs and the already-upgraded auditorium. It would be nice if the priorities were checked so the majority of the student body was safe and happy.
