The community at EVHS is its aspect that makes it so amazing to attend. The entire staff cares deeply about the students, ensuring that both their academic and social/emotional high school experience is the best and most upifting it can be. For example, we participated in a school-wide event this year (the premiere of a new tradition) called Devil Duels which united the school over fun competition in both the arts and athletics, inviting people of all passions to participate. It truly amplified the community our school strives to build.

EVHS has a lot of upside for students. Most teachers really care about their students, and it's very possible for every student to find at least one teacher they have a strong connection with. The advanced track of classes provide a lot of skills students need to succeed in higher education. The sex-ed program is better than many across the country. The culture, while dependent on which grade you're in, is generally positive. There's a sense of unity, opportunity for great friends, and excitement about school events. The downsides to culture is that there's a problem with sexual harassment/violence but that isn't a fault of the administration, as well as kids doing a LOT of drugs, though it's definitely avoidable. The biggest flaws are the Spanish program and the achievement gap. This being that kids who aren't put in the advanced track sometimes fall back, barely graduate, and don't interact at ALL with those in the advanced track.
Eagle Valley High School is located in the small town of Gypsum, Colorado. This means that many of the people here have lived here their whole life, and have been secluded in this valley. There are issues with equity, but there is a lot of work being done to correct these changes. The education are opportunities given with AP and DE classes is exceptional, but creates stress within the student body. Most students overload their schedule and are taking all college classes, which can be hard in high school. Overall, it was a good school to attend.
