As a senior in high school, you look back at all your memories these past 4 years and just remember all the good and bad. At Ellender Memorial High School, I have had the best experiences that I will not be able to get at other high schools. The reason why is because we consider each other family. Everyone around our school will always try to talk negatively about our school, but we truly are a hardworking school that will never stop! I love my high school and it will be sad that I am graduating, but it was all worth it in the long run! I love Ellender Memorial High School!

I am so thankful for being able to attend Ellender Memorial High School; for four years. I've learned a lot walking the halls and sitting in the classrooms at school. Ellender is a very family orientated school. Not every student gets a chance to attend a school like Elleneder. Staff and students are eager to lend a helping hand whenever necessary. However, there is change that needs to be made at Ellender. Ellender needs more college readiness assignments in its curriculum. As a upcoming college freshman, i know i will have study as twice as hard. Our teachers need the guidance a help to us college martial.
My experience at Ellender Memorial High School has been pretty good. Since I’ve been there, I’ve seen the school change in ways that benefit everyone. What I like about Ellender is that there is a since of community amongst all the students. Ranging from the support for sports games and the way students help each other, give me the feeling of a community. The one thing I wish that would change would be the way other schools think of Ellender. I’d also like to see a change in attitudes of students. For example, less fights and more people caring about their school work. I’d also like to see the school go further in security measures. Another great change would be to see our school go from a “B” school to an “A” school.
