Squalicum High School 3

Going to Squalicum High School is an average experience. The quality of education is lacking though. There are of course some outstanding teachers who go above and beyond, but many teachers are not experts in their fields and give out mindless busy work. I learned more in one quarter at college than I did in 4 years at Squalicum. If a student is advanced and wants to go places, they are often on their own. The extracariculas are fine. They occupy a student's time, but many are also just average. This being said, I still really enjoyed my experience here.

Squalicum is a beautiful school architecturally. My freshman found clubs he liked very much. If you have a high achieving child, consider honor courses so as to keep your child engaged academically

SQHS is a great place to be. Many wonderful and committed students and teachers. Multicultural environment is a plus for the most part. The choir is wonderful and the athletics are very competitive in the 3A arena.

The music program is spectacular - 5 stars. Both orchestra and choirs are superb. Emphasis on sports and social issues undermines academic achievement. Very low standards in most classes. Most work not challenging. Discipline very lax. Lots of time wasted in assemblies. Very little parent/teacher communication. Work is never sent home for parents to see and be aware of what is being taught in classes. Overall, I'd say it's a fairly poor high school, excepting the music department. Lots of glitter can't hide the defects.

I love Squalicum. I love how welcomed I feel. The environment of this school makes me actually want to go to school and learn. The spirit of this school is also wonderful. The studnet body is the most united I have seen.
