My high school experience was pretty great overall! Even though it had its up's and down'n , its full of passion and greatness. The one thing that's not great is the food. The food doesn't taste good, I usually have ask one of the seniors to bring me some food becasue they're the only ones that can leave campus. I hope they improve the menu sometime soon. Another change I like to see more students getting involve with organizations and activities. It would make their high school experience more appealing.

I really enjoy the amount of diversity that is present in this culture. Nearly everyone I know has a different background. Nobody is really mean or evil-spirited, and students as well as teachers try to help one another if possible. Speaking of teachers, they great at their job and take their time to interact have try to have some fun with students, making it a understable and easygoing learning experience. The one thing that I would isn't so great is the food. The food isn't always something you want to eat, as it sometimes doesn't taste good. I hope the menu receives a change sometime soon. If theirs one aspect I like the most about the school, it is most certainly sports, mainly football. I love football to death, and I even play for my school! I enjoy the team aspect of football, and how we have to work together as a family. It's pretty heartwarming to me.
I’ve attended Elsik High School the past four years of my life and I can proudly say I’ll graduate in 2019 from this school! Such diversity is in this school, and there’s endless activities that mostly anyone can attend. I’ve never had any problems with the staff members and/or the teachers. It’s such a safe and fun environment. Although it needs physical improvement, it’s one of the best high schools out there! I’ll be leaving this building with great memories that one day I’ll be able to tell my kids and hopefully they’ll get to experience that same thing as well. Awesome school, I’ll recommend it to anyone to attend!
