Elk Grove High School offers many different courses and AP classes students can take to help them with his or her college credits. I am currently in AP Japanese, AP English, and AP Statistics; and all of my teachers are people who actually care about students passing the AP test. It also gives variety of Visual Performance Arts like marching band, choir, guitar, etc... I have been in marching band for all four years of high school and I am grateful this school has such a program because it has helped me with my leadership skills, time management, and getting to have a lifetime experience of creating music with others. What I wish the school can do for Band is to give us more funding like football and other sports. We always have to fundraise ourselves most of the time to continue fall and winter season, which costs at least $20,000. Marching band works as hard or even harder than other sports spending at least two hours every day of rehearsing and practicing.

EGHS is one of the finest high schools in Sacramento County! The teachers really put an emphasis on academics, leadership and if you want to play sports or get involved with a club, there are a lot of opportunities and encouragement. The school is rich with history and pride and tradition. I just love EGHS!
In the past four years, my experience with Elk Grove High School has been average. The school spirit is lacking but the current student body is making improvements. Sometimes the students are disrespectful. I see students not throwing away their lunches and just leaving them on the table. Inside the gymnasium, where rallies occur, I see students not paying attention. There are some good things such as the many clubs and dedicated teachers.
