I love the career pathways at the Elizabethtown High School. It has helped students find their passions in engineering, business, education, health, or the arts. There are lots of clubs to get involved in as well such as service club, political action club, art club, earth club, and women in science. If they don't have a club for you, you can start your own! Elizabethtown High School will give you the freedom to explore your hobbies and interests to get involved in the school and community or get you college and career ready.

As a sophomore, I believe that EHS is a good school. Many of the teachers are friendly, and they each have their own teaching style. Their grading scale system is the toughest I've seen, but it's designed to make students work harder. AP (Advance Placement) classes are either intermediate or challenging, however there are many helpful and caring people who will answer whatever questions you have. There are some areas that the school should improve on. The actual diversity of the school is good this year, but the majority of teachers are unable to accommodate foreign students in their classroom. Usually, their solution is to just use Google Translate. Another area that needs work is the cafeteria. They did change the lunch menu from last year and added some new food items, but the quality of the food has not improved. The students now eat way more chicken. Overall, EHS is a good school, and I'd recommended it to anyone.
Elizabethtown High School has given me the best 4 years of my life! From the teachers, sports, clubs, and academics I think it has prepared me not only for college but for the real world. They challenge us to be the best we possibly can by providing challenging classes. Elizabethtown High School is a small school of about 800 students, the bright side of being a small school is that every student is truly loved and cared for by the teachers and administration. I would not trade my High School career for anything else, I am extremely grateful!
