My overall experience at Elkhart Community Schools has not been an phenomenal experience but more or less average. I did attend the community school back in my kindergarten through sixth grade, then recently in my Junior year of high school started re-attending the community schools. Even though my experience has not been anything special, it has been enjoyable and pleasant.

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.
For the arts and performing arts to have more financial support because they deserve to present a performance or work of art to its fullest potential. I desire for the students to feel the freedom within their melodic and creative experience so the audience can connect with them as well. The sports have more funding, so why can’t this exceptional part of the school have this help as well?
