Eleanor Roosevelt is definitely one of the best school in the area! It had great diversity, and it challenges the students there with their rigorous course work. Some administrators are always welcoming and ready to help. The PTA is very involved with the school, improving the school environment. It could improve in its Guidance- Student Relationship, though.

Eleanor Roosevelt High is unique in the fact that it is part of a magnet Science and Technology program within the county. As a member of this program I have had opportunities to take advanced science classes, participate in science fairs, research practicum courses, and professional research internships. The school itself is very diverse and inviting. Students participate in many school events such as Multicultural Night, Coffee House events, and Spirit Week festivities. The school is much more than one would expect a high school to be after watching so many teen dramas on TV. The only downside to ERHS is the fact that there are no windows in the classrooms. The dungeon-like atmosphere doesn't keep the students down too much though.
I love the school! Nice Teachers, Neat Classes, Challenging Courses, Interesting programs to join along with clubs and I love hearing about the competitive matches in sports with school rivals. Other than the fair cafeteria food this school is awesome.
