Is a fun place to be! Its easy to get involved. Love the teachers!!
Danielle from Everett, WA
I love Lake Washington Tech! The Health building is brand new and very accommodating. The classroom sizes are not too big while allows for more one-on-one interaction between the students and teacher. Not to mention, parking is also free and the school is located a few blocks from the freeway so it allows for easy access. Nothing but good things to say about this school.
