My experience at Edna Karr High School has been excellent. I have had multiple opportunities to express my scholastic abilities, intelligence, and capability to succeed in high school and be prepared for college. Many programs such as free ACT Prep and free ACT Tutoring provided by Edna Karr's Staff. There many events and opportunities that I, personally, have been given to practice and enrich my public speaking, city wide out reach ( such as to city legislatures and other powers that be), as well as student leadership enforcement. My experience at Edna Karr High School has helped me prepare for college and real world events.

I’ve had an interesting high school experience as far as academics, school culture and sports. At Edna Karr high school, academics and school culture are their top two priorities. In my opinion, academics in school culture go hand-in-hand. For example, if the school culture is poor then most likely your academics will be poor as well. Throughout my four years at Edna Karr high school, for you to participate in any extracurricular activities your grades must be up to par. I have participated in sports, such as, volleyball and track and field. Leaving out of Edna Karr high school, if I didn’t learn anything else, I learned how to take pride in any and everything that I do.
Edna Karr Highschool cultivated me for success mentally, emotionally, and physically. The faculty and staff are outstanding and are beyond qualified to deal with any child from any walk of like. One thing I admired the most while attending Edna Karr Highschool was the school pride. We were indeed second to none. A winners attitude is what we were all taught to embrace. The disciplinarians as well as the Head of School all led by example and set a standard of greatness for all students to follow.
