The staff and students at Capital High School are wonderful and they are all well rounded and respectful. I disagree with many of the reviews that have been written about Capital.

this school has no communication with parents or students they don't ever explain all your options to you. I ABSOLUTELY WOULD NEVER send my child to this school it was the most awful experience, leaving this school was the best decision my parents made.

I've been very pleased with my daughter's experience at Capital. Not sure why so many negative reviews. We've been more than happy with the quality of instruction she has received, and the majority of her teachers have been excellent. The social environment has been very welcoming and the one episode ...  Read more

Do not let your child attend this school. 90% of the staff are horrible, especially the administrative staff! Those teachers that aren't horrible are to afraid to stand up to those who are. It's a no win situation. My son is disabled and the last straw was the day a special education teacher pinned my ...  Read more

I believe too much money goes to the IB program and that they should go back to AP classes. Very few students take advantage of this program. More support should go to Running Start students who want to get ahead in their schooling. I believe they should get rid of the Athletic Director position and ...  Read more

The Olympia School district is a horrible district, but Capital tops it off as the worst school. I came here from Tahoma in 5th grade. As I went up the ladder of schools from Mclane, to Marshall, to Capital, it got worse and worse. The teachers at capital are horrid. They don't challenge you. They pick ...  Read more

I don't know where people are getting the idea that every teacher is a joke! I spent 4 years at CHS and really liked most of my teachers. Yes, there are some less-than-stellar teachers out there, but my two personal least favorites have since left, and I found that the number of at least average-quality ...  Read more

Well, as a parent of 3 students going through CHS I disagree with the most current parent comment. In the past, yes CHS has had a better reputation but now we have a new principal and things are definately looking up. Staff is more encouraged and students are happier. I believe if your student has ...  Read more
