I'm just happy I got out of there. I truly do worry how much my education would have been corrupted and corroded had I continued attending this school as well as its high school counterpart.

Ok this school is Average. It's not a bad school, nor is it a great school. My daughter is safe, fed, and has homework. That's why it's average. She came from Tukwila elementary and just finished up her 6th grade. She is in nearly all honors class. Honestly I think she's in honors basically 7th grade ...  Read more

This school is one of the worst schools my child has ever attended! As the parent of a special needs child I am as involved as possible in my child's education, the staff and administration at this school not only avoid communication efforts made to facilitate the child's progress, their lack of concern ...  Read more

I agree that I am disappointed with how the staff communicates with parents. The teachers do not communicate with parents until the last minute, and they are concerned more with giving out 'infractions and detentions', instead of helping students with their work.

I'm pleased with the teachers at Showalter. They show great concern for my son and they're willing to help him outside of class. Their core support group has been very good for my son as well.

Show Walter is an exteme disappointment. It seems that the teachers are more concerned if a child steps out the cafeteria door at lunch, rather than being concerned in how well they are actuallly doing in class. They also seem to be more subs than actual teachers. I also agree that there advanced classes ...  Read more
