ECS is fine nothing that I have a major complaint from my experience, but there are a few things that could be better. For example the bathrooms are kind of terrible everything breaks and also the colors could be better. The teachers I’ve had all pretty nice, but it’s just I dislike how some teachers always follow the rules and have high expectations for everyone I wish they can let the students have a little fun. The sports teams are pretty good, the only things I dislike is that they aren’t that diverse and that the coaches that I’ve had play favorites a lot because they know the parents of the athlete, parents are involve with the school or sports team, and pay more money than other athlete. The clubs and activities are kind of boring when I got to high school they aren’t that fun or something I personally like doing. Besides all that I’ve really liked it at ECS.

I have enjoyed this district. I’ve been apart of it my entire life. Making friends has been hard at times but I’ve always been able to find the right people to hang out with. The majority of the teachers are doing a great job by having an influence on me while a small percentage honestly don’t care. Overall, however, this district has amazing learning facilities and would definitely recommend their child attend these schools.
The main focus is not on education. If it was, there would be more funding to pay teachers more, give students more opportunities, create courses that are fit for any career choice, and overall be willing to make small changes that will benefit the students rather than creating a new school without guidance.
