I like the opportunities that Eden Prairie High School has. They have a wide variety of clubs and there is a spot for everyone. I wish that they had more opportunities for classes like more AP's and more science classes. The music department, specifically orchestra is heavily underfunded. I wish Eden Prairie prioritized more by not putting so much funding into football. All in all, I love being in the Eden Prairie District. Go Eagles!

Eden Prairie Senior High School is one of the best public highschools in the United States due to its students’ high academic achievement and superior staff. EPHS has an involved and passionate community, with plenty of parent volunteering and students involved in sports, clubs, and activities. Countless pupils strive toward excellence by taking one or many of the offered AP classes and college-level courses. The students are diverse, well-behaved, and rich in a variety of perspectives that nurture a stimulating learning environment. Additionally, the school has invested in several updated safety measures. Teachers are well-paid and particularly educated and counselors provide necessary resources for students in need of academic or personal advising. Also, the campus is expansive but beautifully decorated. A notable disadvantage is the “cliquey” nature of the student body, though this is typical of a public highschool.
I moved from a private school to Eden Prairie High School for my freshman year and I am very happy I did. I was looking for a big school, to meet new people, more opportunities, and an overall high school experience. As a senior at EPHS, I can gladly say that I have definitely enjoyed my high school experience. This school does an amazing job of representing students for academic achievements, sports, drama and plays, clubs, and many more. My favorite thing about EPHS are pepfests. These whole school celebrations make me feel so happy and proud to be a member of Eagle Nation. Nothing compares to hearing our principal, Mr. McCartan, give a heartwarming speech that makes everyone cry while you're surrounded by your peers. They really help us prepare for post-secondary options and encourage all of us to be the very best versions of ourselves. There are so many supportive resources and people at EP and I honestly would not want to go anywhere else. Once and Eagle, always and Eagle!
