E. O. Smith High School Reviews

There are so many great things about E. O. Smith. The transition from middle school to high school was extremely smooth. There are endless opportunities to get involved in clubs and activities. There are many different course options for for different levels and interests so that everyone has the opportunity to succeed. It also offers many Early College Experience courses from three different nearby universities. I was able to graduate with eighteen college credits which gave me a great head start in college.
My favorite part of E. O. Smith is the agriculture education program. As a freshman I got very involved in the program which developed my public speaking and leadership skills. Each year of high school I got even more involved in the agriculture program because it taught me many practical life skills. If not for the program I would not be studying animal science at Kansas State University.

It is a great school. I been to this school and the classes they offer are great! You need to work hard in order to get passing grades. The teachers are helpful. Downside is that I sometimes found test to be very ineffective because all teachers are different.
My experience at E. O. Smith high school was a battle, but it was a kind of battle that (or high school kids need to go through) would help you find your place. Any type of clubs or teams after school (anything from debate, robotics, to track teams) find a group of friends that could end up being your friends for a lifetime. I was in the FFA program of agriculture where I then finished high school in the animal science program, I continued for the love of animals into college and into future jobs. The teachers I've had outside of the FFA program were all great teachers, who all were positive who encouraged and believed in me for what I was reaching for in my future. I'd like to see out of E.O. Smith High school, is to see all programs and activities grow. I want to see more afternoon programs being made; independent studies open for seniors. Also have the cafeteria to serve healthier food and expand to be more of a diverse school
