I'm so glad I go to this school. The classes (that I take) are largely discussion-based and often prompt a higher level of thinking. The teachers are so engaged and dedicated to the success of their students. It is so easy for students to actively get involved in the community as well; community service, job shadowing, and internships are all extremely common here. I love how my peers all have passions that drive them to work hard and reach for the stars. The people are so friendly and accepting here, too. If you want to send your child to a school where they'll be inspired to pursue dreams and make a difference in this world, send them to Edwardsville High School. Without EHS, I wouldn't have the confidence that I have today to apply to schools like Northwestern, Columbia, Harvard, and Duke. We're so proud to be Tigers!

It feels like there is always someone there, like a teacher, to help with whatever you need and important projects, even if they aren't school related. There is a large variety of clubs from photography to environmental to war games to GSA; there are plenty of ways to get involved or even just ways to hang out with friends or make new ones. The school talks about having a culture of respect and they give messages of respecting everyone. Classes/ teachers prepare you for college, some teachers start by saying that they run their class like a college course.
I consider myself very blessed to be able to go to a school like Edwardsville High School. The culture at the school is very diverse, most of our sports are excellent, and our academic and sports facilities are supreme. As well, I consider myself extremely lucky to have the opportunity to be a student of some great teachers. However, my favorite thing about Edwardsville are the relationships I have formed with some of the greatest people I have ever met. If I had to complain about one thing, it would be that the homework load is rather a lot, but I know the challenge will better me in the future and in college. In my honest and unbiased opinion, Edwardsville high school is one of the best schools in the state of Illinois.
