My experience of Edward Little has only been for two years. Coming into my junior year, the school was so much bigger than my previous one. Many more kids, the class range went from 62 at my old school to nearly 200, a huge gap. Being nervous passed after two days. Already knowing people who attended the school made it fun and easier for me to get use to the environment, as well as the teachers. The teachers are amazing here and I wouldn't trade them. I've had a good or neutral relationship with every teacher here at ELHS.

The first year I got here was average, except that "preps" still live up to their standards and make you feel unwelcome when you're in a class with them. Although I can't say much about being the best student they had. Because I definitely had difficulties making good decisions. My senior year it wasn't the best. I know that since all these school shootings in the past two years I've gone here we've had one school lockdown, it was a few weeks ago because we had a bomb threat. I think it's the best way to describe safety at this school.
I was a punk student when I attended high school, but looking back at it now, those teachers and coaches dedicate most of their time to students to help them succeed, and unfortunately I didn't appreciate that enough to notice. Going back to college this time around is the real deal for me.
