Elizabethtown Area School District Reviews

43 reviews
All Categories
There are a wide variety of courses offered to prepare students for life after graduation. Students have the opportunity to participate in coursework and programming such as Cooperative Work Experience and Career Internships which help to develop job readiness skills. They also offer programming that allows students to dual enroll in coursework at a collegiate level while still attending high school. Another positive aspect of EAHS is that the teaching staff is willing to assist students before and afterschool hours.
The areas that EAHS lack in are school diversity and student involvement in planned activities.

There were many things I liked about EAHS. I liked that the school gave you the opportunity to figure out who you are as a person. All the teachers and staff were very supportive, and you could go to them at any time for extra help. I also enjoyed the variety of clubs and extra curricular activities the school offered. I was an active member of Mini-Thon throughout my four years of high school. On the flip side, I did not always like the teaching style of certain teachers. I wish we would have had a little more freedom as well. Overall, I had a positive experience at Elizabethtown Area High School.
I've enjoyed my time at Elizabethtown now that I'm a senior. There are a handful of dedicated teachers and if you're lucky enough to get them, they will definitely change your perspective on learning. I love my counselor, Mrs. Gillette, who has been there for me throughout my past four years. In addition to the counselors and teachers, the coaching staff is dedicated and welcomes everyone onto the team. There are tons of clubs to join as well, and a multitude of courses to take that range from easy to difficult. Another nice thing Elizabethtown offers is the Dual Enrollment courses. I have taken two college courses which was a cheaper (and smarter) choice than waiting till college since the credits will transfer. Although some of the school rules are questionable, my high school experience at Elizabethtown wasn't horrible.
