    I just had one student graduate and another is starting as a freshman. I think the school is great! When you go to the school, the kids are kind and friendly. Course selection offers a ton of rigorous choices, as well as a wide variety of electives to grab the interests of students. Its quality sports program and motivated music department also offer lots of fun options, from which many students earn scholarships for their hardwork and talents. The teaching staff and administrator are doing a great job.

    Since we've moved a number of times, my kids have attended a few schools in a various states. Mt Si has, by far, been the very best one. Personally, I think it's the outstanding teachers that make a real diffference. Their passion for the subjects and true concern for the student's futures really set them apart. Thanks so much Mt Si teachers!!!

    Mt. Si is a great school. The administration is making the necessary changes to provide the best possible education to the children of the Snoqualmie Valley. College prep and technical training is available. The Freshman campus is going to make the campus less overcrowded and provide the Freshman an excellent start to their high school career. Call the school and talk to the Principle and see what is really happening at this school. It is an exciting time.

    We moved to Snoqualmie last fall. Our daughters entered their new schools as the second quarter started. The counselor was fantastic to work with. He took the time to find out what the needs and wishes were for our freshman daughter. Then helped place her in the best classes with the most appropriate teachers for her. Next, he walked us over to the volleyball coach and introduced both our freshman and 8th grader to get them in touch with the right people to continue their interest in sports. The first day was great. The language arts teacher made sure there was somebody at the door of each of my daughters classes to guide her to the next class. Also, he made sure there were some kids to have lunch with her. I have also found that the teachers are very approachable and easy to communicate with. We have been very happy with Mount Si High School.

    Why is this the only high school to not offer biology for 10th grade?? Integrated science? Yet the state requires 10th graders to take a biology test at the end of the school year! Mt si needs to look around at what other districts are doing, and follow!

    Every good review for this school is from a parent in denial or a staff member. This school does not deserve the good reviews it is getting.

    If I could give no stars I would. This school does not deserve a 9. I have had 3 kids go this school and 1 graduate, and getting her to graduate was like pulling teeth. When my first child was in her 2nd semester of 11th grade the counselor then decided it was time to intervene and say she will not be graduating on time. Counselors should work with you student through their whole high school career. The staff is infamous for letting students slip through the cracks. However there are a few teachers here that I absolutely adore, because they got done what needed to be done. One of my biggest pet peeves is their class fees. Why should a class have a class fee? Public education should have no cost, especially in core classes. Not everyone can afford these prices and then your students graduation gets held back if you don't pay the fines. To me, seems as though the school is more worried about paying sports related things rather than the education. if I had to move back to the valley, my kids would not go to Mt Si! Look for another school!

    I think the teachers, or hopeful parents (denial?) are rating the school high. The teachers (most) dont teach! The classes are way to easy...the new freshman campus is pulling teachers away and now class sizes are anticipated to be greater than they are already at 30+. A school is only as good as their leaders....this one lacks big time. Neighboring districts refer to Mt Si as Mt "High" for its drug using students! No school is perfect, but this one does not deserve the ratings some have given! Lies...or just lack of perception?

    Just take note that all the good reviews are by parents. NOT by the students who actually go there. Ask me or anyone of my friends and we'll tell you the exact opposite.

    Mount Si is committed to excellence and my two kids are receiving an excellent education. In addition, they love going to school at Mt. Si, there is a strong sense of belonging to the school and there are many sports and extra-curricular programs for the kids to stay involved and engaged. Administrators are outstanding and committed to making sure EVERY kids is prepared for post-high school life.

    Mount Si has turned it around in the past few years. We have two in school there, and one soon to be, and would not consider sending them any other place. With the new principal, teachers are more engaged, there is new/younger staff eager and willing to teach. There is plenty of help for struggling students. There is a wide range of classes from a vast array of AP offerings to construction technologies, video, art, languages and great science offerings like Meteorology and Astronomy. There is a robotics class and computer video class. The culinary arts program is amazing and highly supported. Essentially, something for everyone. The athletics are wonderful, with caring and supportive coaches.

    I have had one daughter graduate from MSHS and have one more to go. I moved to this district because I preferred it over Issaquah and we weren't disappointed. My daughter got accepted at all colleges to which she applied. She had a rigorous education at Mount Si and loved being a part of band.

    MSHS has been a wonderful school for both of my sons. The oldest is graduating in June and will be attending college in September. The courses he was able to take prepared him for this next step. class offerings were good and he was able to take advantage of many AP courses.

    The current population of students and staff at Mount Si are fantastic! For the most part, it is a community filled with bright, polite, committed students, and staff. The Principal, Mr. Belcher, new in 9/2011, has a strong connection with the kids and is promoting an attitude of success for all and a student-centered environment. Mount Si High has made considerable improvements over the several years and offers a wide course selection with a rich science, construction and technologies dept., AP and Honors courses, multiple foreign languages, award winning: gymnasts, cheerleaders, debate team, football players, and MORE! The students come from award winning Snoqualmie Valley middle schools that rival and even surpass other Eastside and Mercer Island schools with better 'reputations'. It's time to look at the facts, instead of relying on old negative incidents and stereotypes about Mount Si and the statements made by those who choose to make negative reports. There will always be those with a less than perfect experience. Now is the time for those with good news, to share it!

    Mount Si High School of today is not the high school your parents went to. It is on the cutting edge and quickly becoming one of the best highs schools in the state. Principal Belcher is leading the charge and has made many staff changes to meet the demands of the community that now encompasse's the Snoqualmie Valley. The choices in cirriculum is vast and there is a fit for EVERY student. My son loves this school and is flourishing. He will easily have his choice of colleges when he graduates in 2 years. I encourage you to really do your research on how great the Snoqualmie Valley school district has become.
