As a parent of two high schools boys this school goes out of its way to assist kids who want to opportunities to learn. I am very happy for my children and what they are learning in the high school.Students who want to learn and take the time to try will succeed here at Colville High. There are lots of different activities from sports to the arts that are available for students and all are exemplary programs. There are a couple of nationally certified teachers teaching here and over 50% have Masters in Education.

Colville High School is only interested in teaching students within a narrow range of intellect and ability. The leadership at the principle level is very poor and the teaching staff is generally ignored. Communication is non-existent throughout the high school. There is very little collaboration among teaching staff and no collaboration between the counseling office and anyone. If your child doesn't fit their idea of a 'good' student and is not an athlete don't expect them to get an education in Colville.

I graduated from Colville High School in 2004 and have since gone on to college. From my observation of other schools and programs and from what colville has given me personally to prepare me for college I have concluded that compared to most other schools Colville High School is top notch. The diversity and quality of Vocations and Electives is awesome. In the Electronics Program Colville has a gem. This program is extreemly rare at a high school level. All students interested in that field should take that class, it truely is one of a kind. In the art Department there is a selection of arts you can take, each one as good as the next. The photography program is recognized on the state level for their competitions. Overall This School is extremly well run and has terrific academics. I look foward to moving back to send my future children there.

A smart, capable student may be able to get an average education here. An average student will likely need remedial courses at the college level to succeed in higher educational pursuits. WASL pass rates improve as the passing scores are lowered. Assistance for learning disabled or similar students is dismal, with no measurable change or improvement in skills or abilities. A 'senior project' is required, but approval and grading of the projects are arbitrary and capricious.
