I really enjoyed going to this school, but I grew up around a lot of friends from around the area. It's different if you move there and try to fit it. But still enjoyed it, and learned a lot, ended up attending WSU after.
I attended and graduated from this school a few years back. The school is great. You can get all the support you need from the teachers and the class offerings are great. I took 8 AP level courses in my 4 years there, and there were many, many more to choose from. There are many low level classes too for students who have fallen behind. Countless students end up at Ivy League schools (even have a graduate going to Harvard this fall). It's eye opening to see how many things this website has wrong about this school. 91% white? The school is 70% hispanic! The hardest part of going to this school is the stigma some of the community has about it. There school has a wide range of students and the students at the bottom receive the most attention. People need to go to the school and see for themselves how great it is. They also have many extra curricular activities. They have more music trophies than any other school in the area (including 2 grammies). Their sports have taken a recent hit but they have hallways full of trophies, with State Championships in soccer, football, basketball, and dance. There are better schools but there are worse schools too.
I think the test scores speak for themselves. The students at Pasco HS can't possibly compete with college bound students that are graduating from top performing schools. I would guess that the top performers at Pasco HS, if transferred, would struggle at high schools with a more rigorous and academically challenging curriculum. Would be interesting to see SAT scores from this school, but based on the state test scores, probably predictable. Only took one semester to figure out that this wasn't the place for my kids. Picked up and moved to a better district.
I attended Pasco High School for 3 years and then I moved. In my opinion, Pasco High School was a greatest school. i love all the teachers and students. I felt very comfortable in school. It has a very nice invironment to study.
