What I like about Elite Scholars are the no tolerance for academic failure. Every teacher around you pushes you to limits you didn't know you had. The only thing I dislike is not being able to wear black pants (feminine reasons), having to wear the blazer outfit every single Wednesday and field trip, and the year long school choice. I am really impressed with the high technology students like me are able to use in every single classroom!

My overall experience at Elite Scholars Academy has been nothing but exceptional and academically pleasing. I was able to gain preparation for college and many of its rigorous courses. The friends that I made in this environment were life-changing and beneficial. We were able to reach a common goal and push each other for greatness in regards to future occupations and career paths. Sure the atmosphere there was kind of suffocating and draining due to all the rigorous work. It was this same environment that pushed me forward into improving myself both physically and mentally when faced with a difficult task. In the end, I was able to gain the importance of perseverance to deal with the challenging road ahead of me.
Elite Scholars Academy is a very well-oriented school. The academics and the facilities are very high compared to most schools in the area. The sports teams are also very good. It is a magnet school so you do have to be picked and placed in a lottery. In a school like that, people who are good in sports don't go there for sports but rather academics, but the picked people are also really good in the sport they play so they bring home many titles. What I would change would be the variety of clubs and classes everyone can take. They have the basics but they don't dive deeper into everything or let students really explore anything other than academics. With that said, it is overall a great school.
