High School Junior

On Resources & Facilities: They do not enforce rules

On Sports & Fitness: This school has a very competitive athletic spirit. However, myself and many others are simply not interested in sports but that was okay and did not seem to attract any attention from those heavily involved in school spirit.

High School Senior

On Extracurriculars: Extracurriculars were not sufficiently advertised; I did not participate in any extracurricular activities.

On Teachers: I have only had one teacher this year that I did not like. Other than that, most teachers are very engaging, knowledgeable, and fair in how they teach and grade. Students are held accountable for their work and are responsible for completing their assignments on time. Grading is consistent and fair.

High School Senior

On Health & Safety: I feel that ECHS is a safe environment. We have a sheriff on sight and random drug tests throughout the year, so the campus is mostly kept free of drugs and weapons. I have not witnessed much of any bullying at this school, as everyone seems to stick up for others. I worked with the school nurse during the second semester, and she has excellent control over the health procedures in the school. Even emergencies that cannot be fixed at school are quickly addressed and taken care of at the nearby hospital. However, few emergencies ever occur because students' medication are carefully organized and refilled as necessary. I felt very safe during my time at ECHS.
