    Student Culture & Diversity: We are not just demographically diverse but also work to have representation at the staff and administrative levels- which is huge! We hold full day summits for black students, latinx students, lgbtq+ students and south asian middle eastern students.

    Extracurriculars: There is a high variety of extra curricular opportunities. Certain sports do not cut which makes athletics widely accessible. My favorite thing is all of the identitiy based organizations like Students Organized Against Racism or the South Asian Middle Eastern Student Alliance.

    Overall Experience: ETHS is unique because change happens from the bottom up. When students see a need for change-especially when it comes to institutional inequities- they fight for it. I also love administration because they have the exact right priorities and most teachers provide their studnets with safe spaces and critical thinking skills.

    Overall Experience: If I had to do High School all over, I would choose ETHS, but so far college has been way better.
