My experience at Escanaba area public high school has been pretty good. The teachers are great and willing to help at anytime. There are always there before and after school and most are willing to sit down and help you with anything you struggle with. The academics are some of the best. We are given the opportunity to take AP classes, duel enroll through the community college, and concurrent enrollment through a university to earn college credits for free! They also offer a fifth year program where they pay for your first year of college at the local community college. The scholarship opportunities are amazing and they give out roughy $400,000 each year to the senior class. There is no better place to learn than Escanaba.

Moving from a small town in Marquette County, MI, I found it surprisingly easy to adapt to the new environment. Not only is there so much less homework, but they have a legitimate and well-established orchestra program! Not only that, but there are routes for alternative education whether it be online or in a specific trade. The students aren't very progressive, however, but that comes as no fault to the administration and rather to the parents and environment he/she was raised in. The student body isn't very diverse, with only about seven black students, four asians, and three of Latin or Hispanic descent in the high school out of around five hundred students.
The teachers are often helpful and encouraging, even my orchestra teacher, despite his cool demeanor. The district is also equipped with the materials to deal with mental illness, even going so far as to recommend a location which provides adult psychiatry for my older sister, which was causing a lot of stress at the time.
I find Escanaba Area Public High School to offer a tremendous amount of opportunities for the students, we have a large variety of clubs. sports and fine-arts programs. Escanaba also has a wide variety of alternatives in classing to suit each student, along with accelerated/honor/AP classes and duel enrollment, which is excellent! The teachers (most of them) make it a mission to directly teach each student and will spend a good amount of time with each of us individually if it's needed. The only complaint I would have is on our concert band programs. They're a little neglected by the teacher, and we tend to waste that class hour. Needless to say, if you're looking for a music class - I'd recommend anything other than chorus or concert band due to those specific teachers dropping the ball. Aside from all that, the overall experience is pretty good.
