My experience with Selah High School has been a good one. I have been taught by some of the most understanding teachers and been in an environment where I feel safe to ask questions. The most amazing thing about this school is the sports and clubs that it surrounds its self with. I have been in cross country for my four years of high school and I can truly say that my team has been the highlight of my highschool experience.
I have loved being at Selah High School, and I have grown to see the value in the high school. I wish that we would have had more opportunities in the arts, but I also understand that being a smaller school it is difficult to fund every program. I have loved the teachers I have had while at the high school, and the administration has also been excellent. I appreciate how supportive the high school is of its students.
In Selah High School, nearly all of the teachers I've had throughout my time learning have been exceedingly supportive of my and my peers' studies. Since my Freshman year, I was able to make connections with them as well, finding that I'd be able to consult my former teachers for help despite not being in classes with them. Through this, I've found the experience on the learning front to be great. In addition, I love the connected nature of the sports I've participated in, especially through Cross Country and Track and Field. In each I've been able to expand my connections with others, especially with new students entering the school, and make new friends that I wouldn't have met otherwise.
I felt like Selah high school was a very nice place to learn at the teachers and staff are really kind to the students and they help you be the best person you can be. And they taught us in a way were everyone can learn
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, it's hard to say anything bad about Selah High school. Yes occasionally there will be that one teacher you don't like or another student you don't get along with, but Selah High school will always hold my wonderful high school memories, and it's thanks to them I get to say that.
It's a good school with great teachers and peers. Food is okay. I would like for Selah School District to provide more college prep courses for all grade levels. Life skills courses would be great too, especially if the courses were recommended. I feel as though, I am not fully college career ready.
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.
I went to Selah High school all of my life. I had no problems with the school at all. If anything was happening with the students, the staff would start working on the problem right away.
Selah High school was a great experience for me the teachers took time to sit with each individual student to make sure they succeeded. Selah prepared me by helping me look into colleges and make recruitment videos for sports. The preparedness for the school was outstanding they were also very involved in the community and everyone would rally around the school to create and environment for students to feel comfortable and welcomed at the school. Going to this school taught me that its not just about I its about we. The mission statement for the school is to strive educate and empower students to succeed in lifelong endeavors. The school has a high success rate which had over 90% graduation rate. Selah school cares about their students and wants them to succeed and will do whatever it takes to better a students life and help them succeed.
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.
I have been to multiple schools, and although I do enjoy attending Selah High School, I wish there was more community throughout the school. There are many different groups and no one is really accepting of any outsiders. This has made my senior year a little difficult.
My experience at Selah High School during my 4 years was good. Selah High School has very good teachers. The teacher always pushes the students to try there best and not give up in there learning which is very amazing.
I have really liked attending Selah High School! The staff really puts a lot of effort into building relationships with each student and are just overall very nice!
I've lived in Selah my entire life. SHS is a decent school, with lots of students, and I would say it's one of the better schools to attend in Washington. Taking advanced classes is reccommended, as general classes move incredibly slow. There is also too grand of a focus on athletics, and little on academics.
There are some great things about our school, for example, we have many clubs that kids can join as school activities or you can even make your own club, but sadly that's one of the only good things about it. We've gone through many principle changes as well as teacher changes even over the course of only four years. No one has stayed and stuck in the same position as they were hired in so it's hard to land the ground running when you're flying up to a new place every year. We don't have any consistency or stability because of this and it's truly affecting the way that students are behaving at our school and the education that is being provided. There is also a problem with unfairly dividing the care and attention between different sports and even mostly between student athletes and just students.
I liked how involved everyone is starting from clubs to sports. Teachers are nice. Their is a lot of diversity which is a good and a bad thing.
