CKHS does an absolutely BRILLIANT job of preparing our children for their future. The staff is magnificient.

We enrolled our daughter in Central Kitsap High School this past fall. She loves it there. She should be going to North kitsap High. Our daughter loves it at CKHS and is doing extremely well. The teachers are great except for the fact that they seem to favor the students who came from Central Kitsap Junior High. Our daughter with many others, came from Ridgetop Junior High. We doubt that one junior high is better than the other. All are good schools. Thanks CKHS for making an impression on our daughter.

The posting on Feb 20, 2008 is quite accurate. I too had a high achiever and one facing more academic challenges at CKHS. The high achiever flew through but there have been few to no options for the average to low average ability child. Math has been a nightmare. Group learning, no classes for those not bound for college. Overall, I would say the school principal and staff have been responsive and invested. The classes offered are abysmal for the non college bound student.

I have a son with average grades. I specifically told his counselor that I wanted him to improve his grades & asked if they had any helpful classes that can lead him onto the right track. She told me that the school does everything they can & that if my son does great in regular classes he could soon take AP courses. I was taken back because my son averages D's or C's and there's no way she just suggested he would be able to take AP courses soon. My daughter who is an AP student is on her way to graduating with honors and I'm glad that the school puts so much effort on their AP courses but what about the students who are *average* Are there no classes to help these students? I'm a concerned & proud parent but I would like the school to focus on helping underachievers.

There are some fine things about this school, which are also its downfall. CK focuses on the Advanced Placement program. If your student is in this category, he/she may do very well. If he/she not an AP student, but just average, he/she will be relegated to Sweathog status, and the school doesn't give a damn about these kids. I say this as a parent of 2 AP students and 2 average ones.... The advanced ones are challenged and are succeeding. The others can't seem to find traction anywhere. The Math program in this school is Disastrous The teachers don't teach anything. Kids are peer taught in small groups and their success is determined by the smartest kid in their group. Progress Reports show that class averages are consistently F. This school is mostly focused on WASL scores and not on education. They teach mainly to the test.

Wow! The staff is on top of everything here. The school counselor that my daughter has is so knowledgeable and is available 24/7. The teachers are outstanding. The national scores speak for themselves. Top 2 percent in nation. The sports program is outstanding. I can't say enough good things about this school. I am glad to be part of such an awesome school.

After moving to a different area and going to a different school, I never realized how great this school was. The teachers are awesome, and are always willing to help you out when stuck, and are dedicated to helping you succeed. The students are kind and polite for the most part, and they have tons of school spirit. This was pretty much an easy environment to learn in. They have many classes to choose from, foreign languages, many different english classes, electives, math, etc.... There are also many clubs and sports you are able to participate in. (every morning they announce something sports related this school is usually the winning team) Overall this has got to be the best school I have been to.

This is a great school with all around great people. From the teachers to the sports coaches they all want everyone to succeed. The teachers are top rate. I would not have want to get my education anywhere else.

Variety of sports/clubs. Parents are encouraged to get involved and the assistant principle is very kind and responsive to concerns.no contact with principle but did hear him speak a few times and seemed honest about wanting to provide quality education. The only thing I do not like is the lack of parking at the school and the site is btw two major roads which make it hard to get in and out of the school in the mornings and afternoon. The student to teacher ration is normal for a public school. the teachers are well prepared and did have different ways to communicate with the parents. The parents got a list of emails for staff and faculty members since parents are not always able to call during work hours. They have a program that allows volunteers to show up either before classes start or afternoons for individualized tutoring in different subjects.

A recent graduate of Central Kitsap, I cannot speak highly enough of the faculty and learning environment fostered in this school. The quality of education I received in the school's AP program allowed me to enter college over a year ahead in credits and pursue a wide variety of interests that would otherwise have been avaliable to me. The opportunities offered to me by CK prepared me more for my college career than anyone will ever know. It is a priceless advantage to students to have over 20 AP courses to choose from, when most schools only offer a handful. CK is a top-notch institution with wonderful teachers and students.

After attending and graduating from Central Kitsap High School, i would have to say that it's a high quality school. The Staff and faculty are extremely kind and helpful. The teachers are outstanding and have excellent backgrounds in the fields they teach. The overall atmosphere of the school is friendly and accepting. CKHS is a great school and an excellent choice for anyone moving into the area.

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.
