    Teachers: I really like the teachers at my school. They are devoted to teaching the material and almost all teachers are available for after school help. From them I've learned a lot of new and useful things.

    Health & Safety: There is a lot of crime at Enloe especially with cell phones. You can't even leave the class to use the bathroom without taking it with you. The amount of fights on campus has greatly decreased but are still evident. Gang relations are not very present but I am sure they are out there. Visitors are supposed to sign in but no one really enforces this. If conflicts are going on between friends, counselors will try to help but don't put in a ton of effort.

    Extracurriculars: Enloe has really great opportunities for students to take part in. For example, student council, NHS, beta club, key club, dance club, sports, etc. You really should make it a goal to join at least one or two extracurricular groups at Enloe.

    Overall Experience: I have really enjoyed my time at Enloe. The students are very unique and you can always find a group of people that are similar to you. It is hard to be lonely at a school like Enloe. With that said, it is very important to get involved whether that be through the arts, clubs, or other organizations. If you are into leadership I highly encourage you to join student council. Enloe has in my opinion the best student council out there and host a huge charity event each Winter that is really exciting to be a part of. The one negative thing about Enloe is the judgement when it comes to doing well in school. You are most definitely looked down upon when registering for standard or even too many honors classes instead of AP's. There is a very twisted perception at Enloe that everyone has to be a straight A student to succeed and it leads to many students becoming overwhelmed and full of anxiety.

    Teachers: Most teachers are super helpful and ready to be there for you if you need them. With that said, there are definitely a handful of staff members who read off of a powerpoint for 10 minutes and call it a class then go back to their desks and do who-knows-what. Some teachers are really amazing and honestly way too good to be teaching high school but are there because they genuinely want to come to enloe since we have such a good reputation for academics. Normally if you are in standard classes or even some honors classes during your junior or senior year youll be stuck with those not so good teachers. Pretty much all AP classes have highly trained teachers.
