I attended Selah High School between 2001-2004 and honestly I have no idea how I graduated. Before attending different colleges in my search for a career, I wasn t unable to form a sentence correctly and, even simple mathematical skills were amiss. I somehow was lost in the school system. I was never forced to repeat a grade throughout my attendance and, my little brother was able to get to his sophomore year without being able to read. I place blame on our lack of parental guidance and the lack of Selah s Schools as a whole. My mother (our only active parent) was in no way influential in the community and truly I can think of one or two teachers that cared enough to try with me. I know that I was painfully shy so I could have fooled teachers into thinking that I was learning and keeping up or maybe they assumed that I would be like the majority of my class mates and, mass produce while living off of the government. I am now looking to move back to WA and I am searching for a good school district for my potential child to attend. I am rating this school 2 stars because of the two teachers who made a difference and, are no longer there.

I am a student at Selah High School. If i could, I would condiser transferring schools. The problem I mainly have is, some students, get MANY more oppertunities than others. Cheerleaders for instense, get all the attention. Where as the band, which I happen to be in, gets harldy any. Everybody cheers for cheerleaders at games, and assemblies. But when it comes to the band, no one really even says thank you. It's a bit sad, I'll say that. I also think, some of the teachers focus their attention more on the students that they like more, or think are smarter. And this is a personal experience. I have always noticed teachers talking more, helping, and even calling on certain students much more than they would to others. Several of my calssmates have noticed the same thing. Certain people need to respect others, not just the ones they want to.

Selah is the best school in the world. They have extraordinary teachers, staff, and the best principle we have seen in years! They do have Advanced classes, which are ment to challenge students, and they do. I participate in several of these classes, and find that they move at a much faster pace than say, a 'normal' paced class. Sports are highly emphasized, but students can participate in a variety of other activities if sports are not to their personal liking. The clubs are amazing, and consistantly do well at regional, state, and national levels. I also believe it is absolutely ridiculous how some people write a review saying how they transfer for lack of AP classes, when they obviously don't need them, seeing as they cannot even spell simple words such as for or lack. Selah is the best, and I would not trade it for the world. :)))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))

Removed children from district in order to have a more challenging academic school environment. Selah has a nice school but some cliques make it difficult for students to feel welcomed in the school. Large emphasis on sports and being in the cool crowd. Weak music program.

Selah is an OK school. But there is a lack of discipline very few AP and advanced classes. And the ones that are advanced are in name only.

I am a former student. I felt I received an average education. At the time that I attended, it seemed as if a lot of the teachers were there as the result of being hired to coach a particular sport. This didn't seem to lead to a quality education in my mind.

I have personally attended Selah High School, and I believe that it is the best school around. All of the teachers truly care about the students and all of the parents are activly involved in their students education.
