Selah High School Reviews
Overall I have loved Selah High school all 4 years of my high school career. One of the things I love about the school is the counseling department. My counselor along with the other 2 we have been outstanding when it comes to mental health awareness and helping students who truly need it. They have a heart for every student differently like they are a child to them. They are always looking out for the seniors when it comes to grad requirements, scholarships, letters of recommendation, you name it! I also love how spirited we are, our community in Selah is very small which allows us to come together and celebrate the Viking Pride and nation. When it comes to football games, basketball games, and homecoming parades everyone is always out to support the schools and local businesses. Selah High School does a fabulous job of setting goals for us students and living through the Viking Way! Go Vikings!
Overall, my experience at Selah Highschool has been a rollercoaster of emotions. Freshman and Sophmore year were primarily filled with amazing friends, interesting classes, and skillful teachers. However, my junior year has been more of a disappointment. I have realized that high school students are not as kind and accepting as I once thought as a naive child. I have also realized that your teachers don't always possess the ability to give you the instruction you require. In all honesty, it is quite difficult to fit in with the students of Selah Highschool. The energy I put forth to make new relationships could improve; however, the effort made ultimately only led to occasional regard. Furthermore, this year, I have been experiencing issues with teachers; teachers that do not acquire the skills needed to be able to teach my class the prompt. However, no matter the difficulties I have endured this year, Selah High School is still a satisfying place to attend school.
My experience with Selah High School has been pleasant, but not perfect. Many of the teachers are amazing. They're easy to get along with and they can become your friends. But the way things are taught in my school in lackluster. For example: in Geometry and History we would be shown a video or have something briefly explained and be given a packet or worksheet and be expected to figure out everything on our own. Some teachers put minimal effort into their lessons and it reflected on their student's GPA in their class. Students enjoy and learn better from hands-on learning and the school should be finding better ways to implement this.
