Capital High School Ratings & Reviews

January 19, 2018 Submitted by a parent
I deeply regret not listening to the parents who tried to tell me not to send my daughter to this school. The administration lacks serious organization as well as basic communication skills. The faculty is overworked, underpaid and understaffed (as are most public schools). Also, like many high schools, there a lot of problems with drugs, bullying, etc., but CHS seems to have these issues on steroids. Drugs and bullying at this school are deeply imbedded and widely ignored. To think that these issues are for "building character" and "making our children stronger to face the real world" is naive and ignorant. These kinds of issues that our kids face on daily basis at this school have very real and serious long term affects. Of course I am not saying that EVERY issue is dire or that EVERY child is in grave danger, but to dismiss these problems as "life lessons" is absolutely asinine.

I loved going to Capital when I was in high school. I felt it was a safe environment, and we were taught things that could be useful for life after high school. However, I am hearing that things have gone downhill since 2015.

Incompetent administration (former principal Chris Woods in particular). Teachers span the range from totally inept to helpful and knowledgeable, though the trend leans towards the former. Mandatory rallies and assemblies an exercise in wasting taxpayer funds. The main focus is on sports, rather than academics. A regrettable four years.

Every review is one's personal story. No high school is unique in its set of challenges. CHS gets a bad rap because the only ones who review are the ones who have a complaint about their personal situation. I don't mean to diminish any negative experiences - I'm sure they are legit. However, we would all like to hear updates 4 years later from parents who bubble wrapped their kids in a private school. Was their mettle tested? Can they adapt, cope, overcome? As a parent, your child is as successful as you are involved in their lives. We have had challenges at every school along the way, but refuse to condemn an entire school because our kid was bullied, or a teacher was mean, or they didn't have AP, or we don't like the food, etc. If you take the time to review a school, know that people rely on that information. Try rating it based on what YOU put into it, not how nice people were to you or what was handed to you on a plate. Our child just graduated with honors & a 2-year degree with a scholarship to a great university, and attended the lowest income feeder schools in the area. She has learned what true social diversity is, and what compassion and hard work are. She has learned to overcome challenges and will be ready for the world. I myself attended OHS and, trust me, same exact challenges there, just a boatload more people and more money. OHS is a great school if you want a vanilla latte. CHS is the campfire coffee of high schools - gritty, strong, and does the job. Choose what's best for your child, but make an informed decision.

Capital HS is our neighborhood school. We have heard many many negative reports from parents whose kids attend this school. Bullying especially. For parents that are unaware, there is another option to CHS and OHS. JP2 in Lacey is a wonderful school. Rich in diversity, academically rigorous, no tryouts for sports, there is a place for everyone. Our kids are thriving there. Very generous financial aid, families of all faiths, graduates going on to college have earned very large amounts of scholarship dollars. Many carpool opportunities. They are adding 8000 sq foot addition this summer as they continue to grow. Well worth looking into. We are so happy to make the drive for our kids. Having this choice of high school feels like a gift.
