Eastside Catholic School
- Private School
- Sammamish, WA
Alum: Overall, I had a great high school career here! It was everything I could hope for in a high school - the teachers are fantastic, and everyone is really kind, even across social barriers (such as jocks and band geeks). They also are famous for their great treatment of handicapped students - they often got to be homecoming royalty, and were treated very kindly by all types of people there.
My only complaint is that as a co-founder of the marching band, the school tends to not give much attention or money to the music program despite its outstanding record and awards won every year. Even when students got to travel the world based on musical achievement or the band went to state championships in multiple areas, there were no announcements unless we pushed the administration.

Junior: So far, Parker High School has given me many experiences, mostly good ones, and I'm proud to say I enjoy attending this school. Sure it may be a bit smaller than some highschools, and there are a few improvements that need to be done here, but overall it is a great school. One thing I would like to see change here is mostly the motivation of some students here. The teachers are most definitely not the reason for this; they offer help and they do what they can to teach students what they need to know. I have seen a few students who prefer to go on their phones than pay attention in class, yet they blame the teacher for their low grade. Then again, I'm sure there are many other schools that do have at least one student who is like that. Besides that, I do think Parker High School might be a nice school to attend (if you can handle the heat when it's not winter).
