    Overall Experience: The school is unique in terms of cultural diversity and athletics. However, I would not choose this school again if I could do it all over because of the disrespectful students.

    Teachers: Most teachers at Clyde A. Erwin High School try to incorporate different styles of teaching to adhere to the students diverse learning styles. All of the teachers have a Bachelor's Degree or beyond, and are more then knowledgeable in the subjects that they are teaching. Most of the teachers also go above and beyond to help their students, and communicate grades, assignments, and dead lines clearly. However, the teachers all grade differently, and you will always get a few of those teachers that do not care every once in a while.

    Overall Experience: Some parents can always be seen at school doing something to help out. Whether it be sports, academics, or out of school activities. However, I feel there could be a bit more parent involvement and that maybe there could be a little more encouragement towards all students, not just the smart, or athletic ones.

    Teachers: The teachers at Erwin High school were good when they wanted to be. Many teachers didn't really car about the students and was just there to get a check. There were some amazing teachers, but majority of them were mean and ruthless.
