I loved being at East Lyme High School, the teachers were amazing, the school in general was amazing. In High School, I played Varsity basketball, cheerleading, and golf. The sports at East Lyme High School are incredible! Lots of fans support the sports, students, teachers, and parents. Throughout High School, I did somewhat struggle because there wasn't much diversity, I was able to manage my way through the year, and have met some other diverse friends along the way. There is not a lot I would change regarding the school other than the diversity of East Lyme.
East Lyme High School is a great public high school. It provides a wide variety of classes for students looking into any career like filmmaking, nursing, accounting, and much more. If a student knows what career they are pursuing, but aren't sure what classes to take, the school also provides a variety of Career Concentrations that consist of a list of classes required or suggested in a specific career path. On the contrary, if a student is unaware of what they want to do after their four years of high school, the counseling department provides a lot of support, and the variety of classes allows the student to experiment. Academics are an important part of the school, but so is the mental health of students. The school provides resources like counselors and a social worker to help all students who need it. The overall support in academics and health has made the experience at East Lyme High School beneficial and fun.
East Lyme High School was a great, blue ribbon winning high school that set me up for college. I loved my teachers, classmates, course offerings, extracurriculars, and overall culture. As social issues were brought to light, a lot of ELHS staff made sure to address these issues in committees, curriculum, and student-led clubs or newspaper articles. However, some other staff seemed to care more about preserving the school's order and reputation than the deeper issues affecting students within it. Overall, I am lucky to have gone to school here, and I hope they continue to work on addressing all that must be addressed.
