    Overall Experience: My overall experience at Egg Harbor Township high school was okay, but it could have been better with a few changes. I'd say the best thing this school has are great teachers. Not all them were great because some were very rude and disrespectful, but most of the ones I had helped me a lot with achieving the grades I aspired to have. The least thing a liked about this school is having to keep a hallway pass with you at all times or you will get a detention. Another thing is the lack of school spirit, out of all my four years there we only had a pep rally once each year. Those pep rallies were in the beginning of the year so only fall sports got to participate in it leaving out other seasonal sports. Also not many people attended sport games. Another rule I disliked is that no student is allowed to give another student a ride to or from school or they will receive a detention. I find this unfair because if a student misses the bus and is unable to have their parents take them to school then they will miss school and be absent. I would choose this again academically, but for the unnecessary rules I wouldn't.

    Overall Experience: I love EHT High School. I do the drama and theatre department and it is excellent. The shows are wonderful and pass high school level. I would not choose to go anywhere else if I had the chance.
