I've learned so much and was able to try new things, be inspired by those around me. And find friendly people everywhere you look! It's a great school to get started on your path of fallowing your dreams. It was for me! I started going to this school enrolled in the culinary arts program. Little did I know that I'd graduate 3 years later with not only a culinary arts degree but also was inspired to get my baking degree as well! Now I currently use my skills and knowledge as a chef at Microsoft!

Before attending, I know people that have left lake Washington tech with full blown careers, so i was excited to see myself. I'm pleased to see my drawing teacher actually studied with current artist and has the ability to show other artists what shows up in his class. The teachers have many opportunities and are capable of giving careers to students that advanced, simply by knowing professionals that are looking for workers. I'm excited to work hard and possibly get acknowledged, because careers are very possible from lake Washington tech.

I have heard several students talking up the school, and I didn't want to sound that way, but the truth is that it is a great school. The price for residence is awesome and less than half comparable private school rates. The teachers are very knowledgable and many are former professionals in the fields we are studying. My electronics instructors come from the real world as electronics professionals, and one even worked as an electronics techician in a nuclear submarine. My psycology teacher was also a military trained professional, and they give new insights to their fields you wont find very many places.
