Eldorado High School Reviews

As an 8th grader I had to choose between going to the two schools closest to my home: La Cueva or Eldorado. Living in La Cueva's district, I has assumed I would be a bear since I was in second grade. I would have debates with my classmates and, despite us having no idea what high school actually was, I fought that La Cueva was the best choice. This, however, changed when I went to both open houses at the age of 14. Something about Eldorado made me feel at home and somehow my perspective then, erased everything I had thought about the school previously. The people were welcoming, the clubs were enthusiastic, the teachers were kind, and the school already felt like home. That hour of athletic promotions, academic meetings, and shaking hands turned into the ultimate decision that would set my next four years. I became an eagle that day and I would do nothing to change that. Eldorado has done so much for me and I could not be more grateful. Thank you Eldorado and go eagles!

Love the teachers and people, just wish the facilities were better! The constant struggle to not have enough bathroom tissue, paper towels, or soap is frustrating. I love my teachers they work so hard with so many obstacles; money, time and censoring. Eldorado is a place where I feel at home and can be myself and express myself, I just wish the school it self was able to be renovated to fix such problems such as brown water fountain water, collapsing ceilings from water damage and tons more.
I did not enjoy most of my classes. Yes they were easy, but intellectually stimulating? Heck no! The main focus seemed to always be on student athletes and performers, and as I was not one of those, I was consistently ignored by all authorities. Also, some of the teachers absolutely sucked at their job. They did not want to be there and you could tell.
