I love Eureka City Schools, but they have moved from putting their students first to athletics. It is shameful that those who are athletes are treated with high respect than those that are not. I was bullies several times and brought it to the attention of their staff. I saw a mass of bullying, and 1 out of 10 times was it dealt with. I do give credit to FFA and Avid for making an impact on a large mass of students. FFA for preparing students for business and interviews. Avid for preparing students for college and making sure that students are achieving their A-G requirements. I also think that the schools should divert their focus back towards its art programs; without creativity and imagination, this is just a school that thinks about its image than education.

My experience at Eureka City School was great. I met a lot of kind teachers that wanted to see me be successful in the future and they were willing to help me if I struggled. I also met a lot of great friends at Eureka City Schools and I also liked the environment that the school has. When it comes to what I think should change about Eureka City Schools, Nothing comes to mind.
Eureka City Schools provides a strong education for students and overall is great at all levels. I was a part of Eureka City Schools K-12 and managed to get into desired colleges. They lack some communication between the staff and the parents.
