I love my friends at school but the administrators are rude and crazy. I am excited to graduate but wish I was more prepared. They also tell you to participate in sports but then they cut you.
Elkhorn South High School is a great school that's ranked highly because the teachers and administration provide the students with everything they need to succeed. Test scores and GPA's are high and most graduates go on to either college or trade and are successful in life. The school provides great resources in order to help students achieve anything they set their minds to. The staff and administration are great and very kind people who push their students to be the best that they can be. There is a great range of classes that are offered so every student can find something they enjoy. The staff is very understanding and will work with their students to make sure they are caught up and understand the courses. The team spirit is also very high because sports are important as well to everyone at ESHS. The school is very supportive of all sports and their victories. There are also many different and fun clubs. The diversity could improve though considering it is a mostly white school.
I would like to see more diversity. I feel Elkhorn South prepared me well for college and allowed me to be challenged academically.
It's great and it has many opportunities to offer! I love how easy it is to create clubs as well as be part of a club. I also love how amazing the teachers are and they genuinely care about teaching you!
I love Elkhorn South because it has great facilities for athletes such as myself, along with teachers that are great with working with students who are also athletes. Our counselors prepare us VERY well for college in terms of classes we take, the difficulty of classes, the resources for college help, and so much more. I love the people, and the friends I have made through sports, classes, clubs, and school held events!
It's a top school for academics and will get you to a top level in any area you are looking for. However this will come with sacrifices regarding the spare time during the day depending on if that is something you are looking for. You will be in school especially in junior and seniors years the whole day. However there are a variety of classes and internship opportunities that can help with this.
I think eshs is one of the best schools in the Omaha area, just because the academics are super great and (most) kids are trying their hardest in school and athletics, so it’s a really good culture.
An excellent school with a high academy expectation. Many extracurricular choices. With a safe environment for all the students. Regardless religion, race or sexual orientation.
Elkhorn South really prepared me for my sciences classes in college. They are most focused on college readiness.
Great faculty and overall administration who care about their students. Great choral arts program as well.
Elkhorn South has a very supportive staff structure. The teachers make it very easy to be successful and give you the resources necessary to be great!
While Elkhorn South High School often gets a bad reputation, the education is phenomenal and I have made so many friends through my time at the school. The school allows me to do the things I want to do and sets me up for success.
I like how my teachers interacted with me and encourage me every day. I do believe there should be more opportunities and safe spaces for LGBTQ students.
I really feel as if Elkhorn South takes pride in individual learning and success, and the counselors do a GREAT job of getting you on the right path for plans after school. I think we have some very good teachers, and great staff. There are a ton of extra curricular activities for all different areas of interest. For me the volleyball program has been like a second family, and has given me some of the best friendships I have had. I played basketball my first 2 years as well. The school spirit is unmatched through all the athletic activities. I love getting to be part of Junior Class Board and planning prom for our awesome seniors this year!
This school is very well worked and also keep the students busy. Countless times my schedule has been filled up with busy work and not true thing that I need to learn to go into college.
They have a very rigorous academic program; the school has lots of different programs and clubs to join.
I had a great experience attending Elkhorn South High School. The teachers were all helpful and enthusiastic to teach, the counselors were concerned with student success and well being, and the overall energy of the school is positive and welcoming. I could not have asked for a better high school experience.
