Amanda Elzy High School is physically motivated, but mentally inclined. Every year books are shared, lunch is horrifying, and pettiness is stirred. I like that Elzy has emotionally stable students, but I dislike he support that we receive from not only the district but the staff! If I could change one thing I would change the administration!

Amanda Elzy High School is a very crazy investment. I have been an Amanda Elzy panther for four year, and I love hate it. Most of the students at Elzy isn't ready for college. We have been through a lot since my class have been freshmans. We are under conservatorship. This is very difficult for us to do thing we would like to do. This shouldn't be an excuse for not doing what we need to do as far as our education. I would love to change the fact that we should be more enthusiastic about learning. As a honor student it frustrates me to know how much potential that the students have at Elzy. I love being a panther don't get me wrong. There is nothing like home, but there could be a lot of improvements at our small school. We still have a lot of panther pride to have a lot of improvements.
My school might not be one of the top high schools in the country, but it is one of the most caring and loving places I have ever attended. The staff shows true dedication, perseverance, and an amiable nature. I am truly honored to say that these teachers have been a major impact in everyone's life. They teach based off how a real professor would teach you, but hey also are well understood that you are still in high school and if you need help in something they are willing to help you. Sometimes they have problems out of students and their patience with us is incredibly strong. Not only do they focus on academics, they also teach us morals and life lessons that will truly help us in this world.
