On Educational Outcomes: I think it's easier to say "we prep students for college," but to be honest, I never learned how to apply for colleges, scholarships, jobs; I never learned how to pay bills and taxes; I never learned how to go through an interview process- all of which will be crucial upon entrance into college.

On Student Culture & Diversity: There are kind of two separate schools at ECG- the advanced/AP students, and the regular students. Generally, the advanced/AP students are the ones that are more involved in after school activities: sports, clubs, music groups, etc.

On Resources & Facilities: The scholarship coordinator, guidance department, and teachers, are all very supportive. The building could use some minor repairs but overall it's in good shape. Technology was just updated. Tutoring could be more readily available, but with only about 60 students in our chapter of the National Honor Society, that's more difficult. Busing is fine, though often, the buses come very very early in the mornings.

On Sports & Fitness: There are gyms outside and inside and multiple fitness trainers available aid in their success. The athletes definitely get great treatment and it's rightly deserved. They must have a a 3.25 or better to play and even train. So academics play a huge role in it as well!

On Administration & Policies: The school is so big it becomes hard to keep track of every one. Not only that, but the student to teacher ratio is so widely disproportionate it becomes increasingly difficult to cater to every students needs. If one problem is solved, another pops up because of it.
