I went to Ellington my entire life and it was a pretty good school throughout. I played basketball and ran cross country, their sports staff is very good. Although there is some things they can work on, it is a very good school.

During my time at Ellington High School, many of my friends have been pulled out of school due to the poor environment and horrendous academics. The school administration seems to be more involved with our sports teams than our education and they continuously have an issue with hiring qualified teachers. I don't recommend this school.
I have attended this school for most of my elementary and high school career. I would rate this School as average. This is a small town and it isn’t large enough to do things that a big school does. However I feel that there was a lacking in attention to financial aid when preparing for college and our classes are not preparing for college.
