The overall quality of teachers are great! Since I moved to Evans I have experienced great help with lessons, projects and especially vital Exams. Their are very few teachers that do not put forth the effort to help their students. Most teachers remember their former students and are always willing to give positive feedback and advice. Their grading system is exceptional and the majority of teachers allow re-takes for tests. The teachers communication skills at Evans are pretty good, if you need something they are open to public or private discussions.

I really only did Band, French Club, and Yearbook but all of these are awesome! I'm in leadership positions for both Band and Yearbook which have made it more stressful than usual but I'm still in love with them. Yeah, I rant and get frustrated with them, but at the end of the day, high school wouldn't have been the same without them. French Club does some really fun things, too! At our Christmas party last year, we made crêpes and did a white elephant gift exchange. If all the clubs and organizations are like the ones I've been involved in, then I KNOW that students are in love with them.

I graduated from Evans High School in 2013. What I liked about the school was the band and my honor's courses. The regular courses were not challenging enough for me and the students around me were not the kindest or accepting. Most LGBTQ friends of mine dropped out in order to not be bullied into depression or even suicide. While I was attending EHS one of my classmates committed suicide in the 11th grade in which the entire school came together to remember him which was very powerful and made me feel more connected to my school. I would say the biggest areas for improvement would be acceptance, diversity, and classes.
