I have been a part of the Elyria School District my whole life. The teachers there really care about the students and their opinions on what can change and improve on to make education better. They already do an amazing job at it! There are still room for improvement with spending more money in the arts than the athletic department, especially since Elyria is becoming more know for its arts. There also needs to be updates to the buildings like they did with Elyria High School. The teachers and professors really make up for that though, they really truly are inspiring.

I went to an early college program but, my home school was elyria high. I think the most thing I’d like to see changed would be the communication through students and stuff. It’s feels very hard to communicate and gain good information because of certain barriers like under staff . I think students need better information about scholarships and schools and they should be easily accessed.
The opportunities provided, academically, athletically, and socially are amazing. There are chances for students to get major head starts on college education and career exploration. The schools are well diverse, and in the process of being upgrades. There are lots of clubs, scholarships, sports, college level classes, help for future plans, and so much more available for students. The only negative thing about the school is that the higher up you go in classes (honors classes in high school) the less diversity you see.
