Issaquah High School
Develops honesty: Strongly agree

My teachers treated the class with respect and were very open about when we could collaborate together and when we needed to do the work ourselves

I am a former student who graduated a few years ago. My experience at Issaquah High school was incredibly positive. The teachers I had, especially in my AP courses, were incredibly dedicated to students and adept at teaching. I felt very prepared for college, both academically and socially after 4 years at IHS. Sports and extracurricular activities at IHS were also a big highlight of my time there. On top of it all, they just renovated the whole school so the buildings and facilities are really nice. Overall, it was an excellent high school experience and I definitely recommend it!

Mr. Jones, Mr. Haff, Ms. McGinnis. I still remember parts of their classes years later. Truly world class educators

Since you can choose between regular and honors courses, you can find exactly the right balance

The AP and honors courses are very challenging - I think my AP US history course was harder than 90% of the classes I took in college

Between charity drives,supporting our special education basketball team, and promoting clubs like Key Club and Amnesty International, there are a lot of school supported events that show students how to be informed and caring citizens

Julie the Vice Principal is the only administrative person I have ever found helpful and humble.

Teachers in this school are not the problem it is the administration and district leadership that is the issue they are arrogant.

Again they only care about the top 1% likely those students are already determined and driven otherwise they could care less if you graduate actually if you are close to not graduating I have heard they will expel the student so they don't go against the schools graduation rate
