    Health & Safety: The school itself is very secure and safe. After school however, many of the kids go out and party and do illegal things. There have only been a few instances in my time here where kids did drugs/drank alcohol on school property.

    Extracurriculars: There is a large variety of things to do, and there are supported by the staff. The performing arts, specifically the music area, is underfunded. Nevertheless, my time in the band was enjoyed because of Mr. Scalfaro

    Overall Experience: EHTHS is probably the best public high school in the area. They make sure the students are safe and have any resources that they may need. Most of the students do not realize how lucky they are to be able to go here.
