My teachers have all been amazing here. They were always there when myself, or anyone, needed help. My counselor Mr. Burke has also helped a ton! The wonderful administration has helped create an amazing set of programs to help us students out. My 4 years here have been an absolute blast, but I am looking forward to using the skills I have honed here to excel in college. Also a quick shoutout to our great band director, Mr. Putka. He got us to really push ourselves, and become a great band.

I love Elyria High School! The people are very nice and it’s a diverse school. The teachers are very nice and willing to help you when you need it, usually before and after school! There is a variety you can have at lunch, so you won’t go hungry! One thing I wish could change is the calendar throughout the year. I don’t like how we have to go back to school the day after New Years Day, nor do we get Easter Monday off! But overall, Elyria High School is a great great with many opportunities for students.
Elyria High definitely has 5 starts for diversity. Also, the advanced courses offered are some of the best in the county. However being an advanced student, you will only receive the academics. It is very hard for someone with goals to get the help they need to move forward after high school. The staff is too focused on breaking up fights and fixing the bad, that they don't focus on the good. The secretaries are also very rude. Academically, I couldn't have made it this far at any other school. Luckily I have found other resources to help me plan my life afterwards. The high school is so beautiful it's a shame to see how poorly some of the students act and fights are not uncommon, not to mention we need security guards at all times. For someone who wants to do well after high school, there are definitely some pros and cons to look at.
