Eisenhower High School Reviews

I enjoyed my high school experience here. By getting involved in lots of clubs and activities I had tons of spirit and connections. There is a big gap between regular and honors classes, meaning that students in the school often have a disparity between levels and it can be hard to get college ready. My Honors and AP courses got me as college-ready as they could. There are problems higher up in administration, I never felt completely supported by the officials outside of my school (The administration inside of the school is wonderful) and my parents never cared for the higher administrative officials either. Other than that, I was very happy all four years because I made the most out of what was offered to me. I was encouraged by all of my teachers, Eisenhower has some of the best to offer! Go Panthers!

There are mainly sports after school. There's a writing club, an anime and manga club, Chess Club, and various things like that. We had a board game club last year but I'm not sure if it's still going; we have a Scholastic Bowl though! No debate team. Most clubs get a few regulars with drifters. A core group with off-shoots. Part of the problem is these clubs attract good students - and good students are some of the busiest creatures on Earth. Sometimes they can make it, sometimes they don't. However, the teachers and administrators are very supporting of the students and the clubs.
At Eisenhower High School has been an amazing experience. At this school it gives the chance to explore every avenue of life. The teachers actually care about the students and how they are. The students are actually very kind and very accepting. When you walk the halls you would see some people who are the best of friends, but you would never actually normally never see them becoming friends happening. The class sizes are a bit of a bummer because some of the classes are over booked. I'd like to see more variety of courses for everyone who is going to be going to this high school, and even though I won't get to experience, I truly believe that it would be a blessing to those new people coming into.
