Being at Eau Claire High School for a total of four years has taught me a lot about myself. The school started off very loud and playful and nothing was being done. After the change of workers and principal, the whole school changed. Things became more serious, graduation was the goal, college was the thing we had our eyes on and the playing was very minimal. The only thing I would change about Eau Claire is the about of opportunities that were presented for students to thrive. More organizations, and more way for students to get involved should be incorporated into the school.

My experience at Eau Claire High school was a touching and overall memorable experience. I have been through many hardships and tough times, in those walls. I learned many things but not just from the teachers but from obstacles I faced and situations I went through. Eau Claire is a very good school despite all the negative comments you hear about it. Some of the things that are said about Eau claire may be true and some may be false. I wouldnt dare change anything about it or my experience because it mold me into the person I am right now.
The staff at Eau Clair High School doesn’t care about the students. The school is very poorly managed. The area is not so good, therefore the kids don’t have good support from their family or community. Not all kids are bad just because of where they live. I think they just need some guidance. If they can’t get it from home they should at least get it from school. I wish there was something I could do to help out with the school and community. A mentor program would be great.
