El Dorado High School Reviews

My school I would say is pretty average. I've never had a good meal at school, so I've started bringing my own lunch. I wish the school would change what we eat, and make it more real and delicious, not processed and plain tasting. Bully is not really an issue at my school, which makes it more enjoyable. The secretaries at my school are not the nicest, and I wish they would get new people for the job. I wish the school would change the required classes we have to take, or at least would give us more options of what we have to take. We do have good teachers, I enjoy most of my classes as well. I enjoy that our school only requires us to take 2 semesters of strength. The sports programs are pretty good, except for the varsity volleyball coach. She isn't fit for the position and isn't mature enough. I still enjoy playing volleyball for the school.

I have enjoyed my last four years of high school. I have made many friends and been active in many sports. I have played soccer, basketball, baseball, and tennis. On top of that I have participated in band and drum-line.
The thing that I liked about El dorado High were some of the teachers. some really cared about their students, but others didn't seem to. I did not like the way that most situations involving students were handled, or the style that some of the faculty used when dealing with parents and/or students. There were many days where I left school feeling very frustrated and upset. Also, sports always seemed to be a priority over all other school problems and athletes seemed to get special treatment.
