Squalicum High School Reviews
This high school has really changed my life. Every teacher I've had is kind, understanding, helpful, and genuine. They clearly enjoy what they do, and my education was made fun because of that! The building is large and the campus is spacious. There are many student-run clubs that help host different events throughout the year. Everyone here feels welcome and unique.
Squalicum High School was much the same as most schools. Decent staff, lots of students and an atmosphere showing that most of the people there didn't really have much interest. As usual a handful of students and teachers cared about the success of the students but in general it is the high school experience. There were good sports and afterschool activities, your typical things to do. Not much stands out about this school compared to others except the ever present "bragging right" of having the most AP classes in the district which at the end of the day doesn't do much for the average student. Much the same as most schools this is your typical urban town high school experience where most students cant wait to graduate and move on. Average is a good way to summarize it.
Squalicum high school is a safe environment for everyone to express themselves. The school is very appreciative of our staff for everything they do, so we are constantly showing them love around the school. Squalicum has the most clubs in the district, and all the clubs benefit the school because many students are involved in at least one club. Students who are invloved in clubs get the opportunity to build skills such as communication, organization and teamwork. Clubs can raise awareness to the rest of SQHS through fundraisers, posters, and anouncements. STATE PRIDE STATE WIDE!!! Is the motto our student body stood by. We would cheer this chant on top of our lungs at events and after we were done you could feel the togetherness of your fellow classmates and it seemed we were one big family. Even just walking through the halls you can see and feel the school spirit surrounding the school. Even though i just graduated, i will always feel apart of the storm family.
