    Overall Experience: Honestly, I love this school. I think it's one of the greatest schools in the country and i feel like Im a part of the ETHS community. I came to Evanston in the eighth grade, but I felt "at home" until I got to ETHS

    Food: We've had great lunch options for school, over the past year, the options have gotten healthier and, to me, less appetizing. And not many options for vegetarians like me

    Administration & Policies: I think ETHS is as strict on students as they need to be. For example, if you have an unexcused tardy, you'll get a detention, or if you do something extreme (for example come to school intoxicated), you might get something called Social Probation, where you forfeit your opportunity to attend school activities such as dances

    Sports & Fitness: We have a wide variety of sport teams and tons of students that have the school spirit to support them. I mean, especially for football, the school spirit is definitely there

    Teachers: I believe the teachers at ETHS are of high quality. They are devoted to their work and their students. I have yet to see a teacher who was careless and/or selfish when it came to teaching and aiding their students
