I really like Ennis High School so far. The students are respectful with each other and engage in class. The teachers always make sure that they are teaching what is needed to their students and make sure that the whole class understands. The principal, Mr. Bishop, is a great principal. He is fun and understands us kids and that not everything has to be strict, but when needed he is serious. The 10th grade Assistant Principal, Mrs. Fuller, is my favorite faculty member here at EHS. She has helped me tremendously since the beginning of my freshman year of high school and I can not thank her enough for what she has done for me. Even though she is the one I tend to go to when I have trouble, every faculty member here will do what is needed for the student body here at EHS. I am glad to call EHS my high school.

Absolutely great high school! Teachers are engaged with students every day and genuinely want to improve their students academic skills. The athletic department brings the whole town together at each sports events. In the future, I would 100% feel comfortable with my own kids attending this high school because every faculty member made me and my peers feel comfortable in our own skin and we never had to hesitate to ask for help when we needed it.
Overall a pretty great school. The teachers are some of the most caring people and the school has a wide range of advanced placement and dual credit courses. The only bad thing is probably the over controlling administration, more freedom should be given to teachers and the student body.
