The experienced staff leads to high graduation rates among classes year after year. The student life is a bit more about popularity and status than anything else, but you'll find that at any high school in the nation. As a wealthier neighborhood, you are going to find easy access to drugs and alcohol for the students that attend. It's really on the parents to monitor that behavior and set limits on allowances for their kids, nothing the school can do about that. For those interested in sports, the teams are great due to private club teams and lessons provided by families in the area. Hundreds academic and athletic scholarships are awarded to students every year. Foreign language programs at the school are awesome, and kids can earn college credit while enrolled at WHS.

Depends on the teacher, but most give and teach respect in the classroom and on the field.

This High School is in an excellent area and the Middle Schools that feed into it are excellent. Although the school facilities are excellent, the focus of the school is more about the advantages of being popular and having wealth than it is about self-worth and achievement. You can get on the sports teams if your parents could afford to give you private instruction. You can park close to the school if your parents can afford to pay the ludicrous parking fees. This focus on status and popularity encourages a student culture of class separation and exclusion. As far as the curriculum goes, there are some very dedicated teachers and others that give less than their best. If you don't know this beforehand, or don't know how to get your child into the right teacher, your child's education will suffer. Don't bother reporting things to the counselor's either, unless your parents....oh well, I think you get the picture. This is a great school if you want to teach your child the importance of money and status. If you wan to teach your child the importance of self reliance and self worth, find a different school.

If you want a school where the teachers waste time in class, shove their liberal ideas into your childs head and couldn't care less about their academic success, then this is the school for you. The building is nice and the admin staff are very nice but that doesn't make up for what counts.

We like this school, but were very disappointed in the band program. They are touted to have this great band program, and it's just not true. The marching band is a joke...they don't even march! Academics are fine, and I think the environment is good. But the music department is a huge disappointment :(

As a former student of this school (3 yrs), I read the previous reviews with a bit of amusement. Yes, I was harrassed publically and setup to fail in a Math class; but it often backfired on the teacher, (i.e. when he had to change his answer key.) I still 4.0'd his class. Yes, there are a few drug use problems on both the high and low end of the student spectrum; but again isn't that expected for upper middle class neighborhoods? However, my overall assessment is this is one of the best schools I'd EVER attended. If you want an education the staff here will help you achieve it, period! If you just want to coast, it's not the schools fault if you (or your child) doesn't learn anything. I am VERY Happy I graduated from this school.

Drugs are a huge problem here. The teachers are uninterested in students learning and parents arent very involved. A terrible school

Some of the teachers are truly inspiring; others are just coasting to retirement and waiting for their pensions to kick in. School administration is just adequate but not visionary or creative. Teachers have way too much autonomy and no oversight from administration. Inglemoor HS is far better.

It's an average school, but the teachers there are really bad. They make it hard to succeed and even make fun of some students and they think the're funny, when they just make themselves look bad. Every teacher is very different from the next, they follow their own rules, and talk about what they want.

This school wasn't the best. The strict rules have gotten out of control by banning lunch outside, and soon the seniors probably won't be able to go off campus for lunch anymore. I've heard about fights occuring, drug use in the little hidden pathway across from the portables, sometimes even sex and other horrible things happen. I guess that is probably every high school though. But this school is just not good personally. All the amazing teachers have retired, now we have horrible new teachers whole only prepare you for the next test, not actually teach you something to use in life. The Learning Center is bad as well. They give you these packets about your "disability" and it just makes you feel AWFUL about yourself! I am leaving this school because of the bad new teachers, the stupid new rules that are now making it into a prison.

My child attended this school and her grades dramatically went up. Her peers were accepting and her teachers were very involved interacting with us when we emailed. We were able to access her grades and help her stay on track. I am very glad our youngest will be going there as well.

The level of support seems to be quite good overall, but I would like to see a bit more communication in regard to the website information available to parents. I don't know which teachers are able to post the grades online. Otherwise, it seems to be well run, with good involvement from the teachers and administration.

Great school, plenty of academic, athletic, and positive club options. Students and staff work together to make this school what it is.

Good academic and AP programs. Highly rated athletic programs. Principal reacts defensively when approached by parents with curriculum/ teacher concerns.

Great school with a rough exterior. The facilities are very odd and don't add to the learning experience at all. However, the teachers and staff were for the most part, good to the students and parents. They allowed for great parental involvement - which is not always the case at every school.

My daughter attended woodinville High School a year ago. This is an older school, and hopefully will get some remodeling done in teh near future. My daughter would complain about the dirtiness of the bathrooms all the time. Toilet paper all over the place, etc. Usually no t.p. was in there so they had none to use. Teachers wouldn't do anything about it when asked. Teachers overall were fairly good. We had problems with the math teachers, math being a struggle for my daughter, she needed all the help she could get. For the most part, I felt the teachers were pretty good and helpful. Too much emphasis on how you look and how much money your parents have here. Lots of kids with money, nice cars, and not a huge amount of kids working hard to get to where they'd like to go in life. The programs available are good.
