I'm a student from SWHS and it is amazing. The teachers actually care about me which is so diffrent form my last school. The sports programs are top notch. For a small town this is an awesome school.

I have had 4 children attend and graduate from Sedro-Woolley schools. They all have suffered greatly from the experience. 3 of the four went on to college and had to take bonehead classes to catch up on missed educational opportunities. One of them was a 4.0 student at Sedro-Woolley and was not considered qualified for admission at the U of W because of the grading systems (upgrading) used by the Sedro-Woolley school system. The admissions department at U of W said his grades were discount a full grade point because of the quality of the system. Two of my children went on to get advanced degrees and have survived the experience.

I just graduated from Sedro-Woolley High School in the class of 2006. I found Sedro-Woolley High to be an amazing school and the teachers there have a true impact on the students who are willing to be impacted. The school is a wonderful learning environment and all of the faculty truly care about the students. If a student chooses to continue on with any higher education, the school is fully supportive and does whatever possible to ensure that one is capable of applying and receiving financial aid. I am now attending college in New York and have received a significant financial aid package based on merit. I would give full recommendation to attend Sedro-Woolley High School. For the students who seek excellence, there are many opportunities for success at Sedro-Woolley High, but then again, if the student is excellent, he/she will succeed in any environment.

I attended this school and I must say this was a horrible learning environment. I would never send my own children there.

This is a horrible school for so many reasons. Drug and alcohol abuse ON and off school grounds, high teen pregnancy rate, low test scores, bad teachers... that list goes on. I should know, I was a student there not even 4 years ago. I have since moved to Bellevue because I have a family of my own and refuse to raise my children here. The peers and even the adults are bad influences. The majority of the students don't even continue to college, and those that do, the vast majority of them never get more than a Bachelor's degree. I didn;t even consider college until after I graduated because the school never consults the students about it or educates them about how to get into college or how to receive financial aid. I do not recommend this school at all.

This school has been a great support to me. its journalism program suffered a hit when the Advisor, Andy Gobel, took his leave, but the new Advisor is taking the staff that is still around and rebuilding the program to what its glory once was. The teachers have always offered extra help when I didn't understand my studies, and when there might have been any kind of short comming in the education I was recieving, it was quickly brought to light, and dealt with in a respectful and appropriate manner. I am extremely greatful to the staff of SWHS, and can only offer my highest regards.
