I could go on and on about how amazing Lake Stevens High School is. I used to want to do online schooling but my parents encouraged me to continue with public school. I'm so glad i did. I couldn't be happier with LSHS. I'm involved in some of the many activities that the school has to offer. There is a great selection of classes and more AP classes getting added each year which is cool :) But most of all about LSHS I love the school spirit- and the extra step staff and students make to go out of there way to help someone else. GO VIKINGS! :D

Leadership at this school needs improvement. They do not actively seek nor are they interested in feedback either from students or parents. While the kids in general are great, there is an "old boys" network there like you wouldn't believe. If I had known a few years ago what I know now, I would have choosen another school for my child.

Originally from the state of Nebraska, this school has alot to be desired. Never had any problems whatsoever until my child went to this school. Too many specifics to list. One thing I will list is the 'Confict Mediation' program is a complete joke. It's not a wonder why there are so many problems.

An amazing school, the classes are great, as are the teachers. In my opinion, it starts a bit too early in the morning therefore the children don't learn much that early. But other wise, it's an absoulutey amazing school.

All around good school. Kids have seemed happy with Ap classes, sports, clubs, etc. Lax dress code and a few kooky substitutes, but other than that, a terrific environment.

This is a really great school. The school has amazing school spirit, all of the kids are really involved. They could use some more AP classes, but otherwise have very good class selections.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 Washington used the High School Proficiency Exam (HSPE) to test students in reading and writing in grade 10. Math skills are tested by the End-of-Course (EOC) exams. The HSPE is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Washington. The goal is for all students to score at or above the state standard.
