What I liked about Puget sound high school was that it's a small school student class population of 42 per class Am or Pm so they pay more attention to you and what you don't understand unlike in some schools teachers don't explain class room work properly the teachers at Puget sound are nice and patient with you when you don't understand and they actually keep up with you to see how you Are doing and if you need help with a certain class. I wouldn't change anything from the school because it is very different and unique

Most teachers at Puget sound high school are amazing they are always willing to help and am a type of student who's quite and tries to keep to herself so when i had a questions about class i wouldn't ask because i had felt uncomfortable but when i attended PSHS i felt like it was home. i could ask my teachers anything even personal problems. i will always cherish PSHS, its one of the best schools around the highline district.
This side of the school i wouldn't know a lot. Since i work after school didn't really have time for after school activities.
