I like Elkhorn High school very much! It’s a good school in a nice area. The staff are friendly and the character of each teacher I have had is nice! I gave the school 3 stars because I have had no issue with the school itself other than the fact that it does not help students as much as Omaha schools do or others. Omaha schools for example offer more scholarship opportunities and actively seek to put their students in a positive light and provide as much help and opportunity as possible. Where as in Elkhorn it is very much an independent task to try to find these scholarships with little to no guidance. The point of a high school is to prepare their students for life in the real world, and academically they have provided me with more than enough knowledge on specific subjects, but not enough on how to get involved or gain aid for university. Which is a path they heavily push on their students.

Elkhorn High School offers a challenging curriculum that allows students to learn key skills that can be utilized in their everyday lives and help them achieve their future goals. EHS is also has many programs students can get involved with, my favorite being the vocal music department. The EHS sings program allows students to be apart of the school musical, the Nebraska All-State choir, Concert choir, Jazz choir, and Show choir. I am forever grateful for the lasting memories and opportunities EHS has given me.
What I liked about Elkhorn High School was the challenging curriculum. If it wasn't challenging then I wouldn't have been prepared for the real world or college. The homework was a study tool. It helped prepare you for tests. The teachers were very helpful. There were multiple resources to help you if you were struggling to keep up or if you wanted to go beyond. What lots of other people love is the sports and extracurricular activities! There are sooooo many clubs you can join. The student body was great too. Everyone helped each other out and were there for each other if anyone needed anything. If I were to change anything, I would pay the teachers more so they wouldn't complain about how little they get paid for all they do. They really do a lot and work hard to deliver the best education to us.
