I like the school for many reasons. Basketball team is an embarrassment with new coach.

Klahowya in my opinion is the best kept secret in Silverdale. Son graduated last year and it was a fabulous experience all the way around. For those who say it is not a sports school, they are really doing well with all of their teams. They are gaining more and more respect in the community. A+++ school awesome teachers. Love it!

After 5 years at KSS I can honestly say I wouldn't put my children at another school in the ck district. I have watched my children soar. I'm very involved and for the parents saying that they don't get enough notice on homework and tests please remember this is partly on the Student. They should know when things are due. KSS is a good school. Proud to have Eagles at home and look forward to continuing to see the kids succeed.

While this school is friendly and student oriented, it does absolutely nothing to drive its students success. The staff does little to nothing to accommodate parent requests. Test taking is not a skill taught at this school and the teacher mentality is that the student is always 'right' but could do it better. This is an illogical application to real life and shows in their MSP scores. The MSP average is HALF Central Kitsap and they have more students and more students per teacher! I advise everyone take a look at the numbers not opinions before enrolling your student to a school producing the lowest number of college graduates in the county!

I have been to over 7+ schools, due to military, so I know the feeling of not fitting in. So I dedicated my time to studying, and Klahowya does not have the best library around, however it does its job. I love the fact that, its not really a home environment, but a friendly work environment. Highschool is the hardest time for a kid to fit in, and if you don't fit in with one crowd you are welcomed in another. Whether you be a nerd, jock, emo, ect. Klahowya is not a sports school, in my opinion its more of an arts school. You can find creative kids anywhere in the school, and you will find kids carrying around sketchbooks. The marching band is the best, placing 1st or 2nd in any competition, and there is plenty of kids in marching band, with their handful of percussionists XD. So Klahowya isn't a sports school, not the end of the world. Another thing about Klahowya is the classes. The teachers I have had are amazing, they work with you if you are falling behind or slow. However, they won't babysit you and tell you over and over again if you need to turn something in. I wish I could write more, but I gave my rating based on my opinion, now I am running out of room. Anyways, Thanks

I've gone to kss for three years now, and everyone there is pretty chill. Way less pressure to fit in than other schools I've been too. I take grades seriously and am in honors/ap classes, and they're all good. The students and teachers are mostly very accepting people and that's pretty rare in high schools.

I homeschool my 8th grader. I used to homeshcool my other one, who is now in 10th grade at Klahowya. I am now going to take him out of 3 of his classes and start him in the off campus program. I agree with the person who posted on Aug. 28, 2005. They haven't changed since then. You still get notified when an assignment wasn't turned in, but not when something is due before it's due. My son is failing 3 of his classes, partly because of him, but also because I don't know when tests are, and he doesn't write it down. The school makes it mandatory to buy a student planner, but then doesn't make the student use it. What good is that?

Klahowya Secondary School is about as good a school as someone could hope for. Currently attending Klahowya in the 11th grade. My school experience so far has been excellent. Apart from a few members of the staff, the teachers are excellent and in general are good instructors. Like some of the other reviews, I do agree there are some staff who are not ideal, but these people are few and far between. The sports program does fine for its size, and the oppurtunities for students are plentiful. Also, other activities abound for most interests. I feel that any student who cares about learning will attain the education and school experience they want. Also, one of the better features of this school is that there are much less societal and environmental pressures commonly seen at other schools. Sure, Klahowya has its faults, but what school doesn't? Klahowya Secondary School is great.

I have had two kids graduate from Klahowya and have one there now. I hate it. Some of the staff is OK, but there are many many more that are ambivilent to teaching. There are teachers that hold grudges and are just mean. I have bever seen anything like it in my life. Iaam constantly having to run interferance between a teacher and my child.If I wasn't a a single Mom I would homeschool, but right nowI have to work, so that is not an option. If you have a choice, do not send oyour kids to this school

I am now a college freshman that spent all six years at klahowya, i greatly appreciated my time at the school and have a lot of fond and dynamic memories. This school really alowed me to focus on my education and the counseling staff is absolutely amazing and willing to do anything to help a student in need. The teachers overall care a lot about their student's success. I took six AP courses, graduated with a 3.55 GPA, got into every school I applied to including UW. If you use the resources available this school will offer you great success with your child!

Principal leadership The administration at Klahowya gives the impression of success yet I have seen many instances where bias and ignorance have clouded their judgment. Teacher quality In the 6 years that I have been at Klahowya, I have had many teachers that are amazing at teaching their subjects. I can recall only two teachers that only taught the bare minimum. Extracurricular activities Klahowya offers more opportunities to be involved than other schools because of its size. I was able to become involved in many clubs, sports, ASB, and even one of the plays because of this reason. Level of parent involvement - The opportunity to volunteer is always there for the parents that wish to be involved. Over all - I am glad to have chosen Klahowya because of the opportunities that I was given. If I could do it all again, I would definitely choose Klahowya.

My child has been going to this school for 3 years and theres no way I would recommend this school anyone who isn't willing to deal with the politics of the district! I have no faith in the school to help educate my child because they are to busy dealing with the fake drama to deal with your childs education! The only thing about this school I can say that is good is the counselors. They try real hard to keep the students focused on the education. But even their hands are tied by the principal. The put no focus on girls sports only boys.

My grandchildren attend Klahowya because I have custody of them. I started one of my grandchildren in the off campus program and am thrilled with her success their. Off campus gives you a timeline of each class so the parent knows what is due and when. At Klahowya you only get this information after the fact. You get notified about what was not turned in instead of what is due when. If a teacher can take the time to tell you what was not turned in, why can't they take the time to tell you what the assignment is and when due. I find the Parent Connect program very frustrating because it is only good if the teachers use it but they don't

I agree with June 2005's review regarding extra-curricular activities at this school. They can't seem to keep coaches and will not hire teachers with coaching backgrounds.

This is a great school. The teachers are great, and they seem to really care about what they teach. The extra curricular activities are excellent and the music and art programs are excellent. Lots of parents are involved. Its an all around excellent school.

Klahowya Middle school I rate as a parent in three areas. 1.Academics I rate high. The teacher to student ratio and facilities are above average and numerous special programs are available to challenge the students. 2.Administration I rate as average to below average. On several occasions, the past two years, there has been numerous breakdown in communications with the school concerning messages and delivery of material. This includes lost paperwork and inability at times to notify parents of schedule changes (especially in the sports schedules). Also the web page for the school is not well maintained, and the yearbook consisted of over 100 errors. Athletics I rate as below average. Not because of the students but the lack of commitment of the coaches to maintain a workable number of players and coach for improvement vs. introductory level play as you see in gym or PE. Thus hurting the building blaocks for the HS program.

I think all the people who say KSS is a bad school are toatlly wrong. I am a 7th grader there and all of my teachers i have are great! Well except for one. MY mom works there and everybody at the school that has had her has said that she is the best teacher they have ever had. KSS is a great place to be and has great teachers. Yeah people worry about their looks but so what. They worry about there looks before and after class. Not during class. U are all wrong. Maybe u should pay more attention.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 Washington used End-of-Course (EOC) examinations to assess students in Algebra I, Geometry, Integrated Math I, Integrated Math II, and Biology. The EOC tests are standards-based, which means they measure 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.

The different student groups are identified by the Washington Office of Superintendent of Public Instruction. If there are fewer than 10 students in a particular group in a school, the state doesn't report data for that group.
