I have enjoyed my time at Elk Grove High School very much. Some highlights at Elk Grove are the exceptional Orchesis dance team, anything produced by the fine arts, and the school spirit we possess. I have been pleased with the teachers, counselors, coaches, and Principal Paul Kelly. He has created a warm, inviting environment and keeps himself very involved with the student life. One class that has influenced me in a positive way is Mr. Bush's Leadership Through Service class. He has taught me skills of leadership and finding myself that I will use into adulthood and my career. He has showed me the importance of giving back to the community whether that means collecting cereal, raking leaves, or raising money for St. Baldricks. All in all, Elk Grove High School has given me a wonderful four years that I would not take back.

The school is a very accommodating place with tons of resources available to ensure students well being. I've never felt unsafe in this school, and the teachers always make sure to make their students as comfortable as possible. The curriculum is up to date, and fits standards such as those of the College Board. The staff is all welcoming, but the deans are a tad bit harsh when it comes to dishing out suspensions. The schools vast resources allow it to have various classes centered around what students believe they want to do after graduation, whether it be trade school or higher education. The school has become a bit more restrictive, and various things have been taken out of practice such as late start Thursday, and open lunch to certain students. We also have a vaping problem at our school.
My experience with Elk Grove highschool was an amazing one. I transferred to Elk Grove my junior year and quickly realized it was the best thing that could have ever happened to me. The staff and teachers at Elk Grove made sure that my transition was smooth. Not only was my transition smooth, it was also very welcoming. Every single facility member and student treated me as if I had been in that district my whole entire life. The student were all so wonderful to me and I felt at home because the school is a very diverse school, unlike the other high school I went to which was 95% white. Elk Grove also has many sports and clubs which is perfect for transfer students because it allows you to meet new people fast. My overall experience at Elk Grove High School was so amazing, it prepared me for the real world and I wouldn't trade it for anything.
