I dreaded my kids coming of age for High School. Feared it, because of my own miserable experience. On orientation day, my slightly socially awkward, less than athletically built daughter was embraced by the upperclassmen. The swim team captain, beautiful, smart, athletic (my brain immediately dismissed her as one of *those* kids the rich, snobbish type that made my own life such Hell) took her under her wing. Showed her the school. By the end of orientation, I was jealous... *I* wanted to go to this High School!

As the years went by, I kept waiting for the dream to end... I was defensive (internally) with teachers... but the teachers were great. Understanding, helpful, listening... not once unreasonable or showing favoritism.

My daughter graduated last year. I’ve another graduating this year. Straight A students. Personally I attribute it to the school, to the teachers (though the girls pout at me... *I* don’t feel worthy of it)

Sedro-Woolley High School offers so many programs to their students, such as wood shop, auto shop, ASL, ceramics, and so many more programs. They also offer college in the high-school, these are classes students can take whithin the school where they're able to earn college credit that is transfered over into whatever college they choose. This allows the students to get a head start on their college career which is super beneficial. The high school also provides several in school and out of school activities to get the student body involved. We have fun assemblies like Winter Wishes where students are gifted gifts by other people around the holidays, we also have spirit weeks, and amazing dances and football games which are all put together by the amazing ASB staff which is consisted of students whithin the high school. The school also provides delicious lunches, and lots of variety. Overall, the experience was pretty good.
The teachers and staff at this school care about their students, they want them to succeed and have the tools needed to do well in the future. Unfortunately, this school district lacks resources to truly meet the needs of all students and to set the average graduate apart from others. Entering college, I realized that I had much fewer opportunities than my classmates, less classes offered, less diversity, and overall a below average high school experience. I think the redeeming quality of this school is as mentioned earlier, how much the teachers and staff care. Despite being a straight A student, I found myself going in and getting one-on-one help with teachers quite often because I knew that if I wanted to stand apart from my peers in college, I needed to learn skills that weren't taught in the regular classroom. While I was able to succeed (as I am now entering graduate school), the regular education offered was not enough to prepare students for success in their futures.
