Estero High School Reviews

I believe Estero High School has some amazing staff but is limited to fulfilling its potential by the administration of Estero and Lee County. Many of the things they do, such as mandatory benchmark tests so often and not allowing the teacher to make the decisions really make the learning experience poor. I am in the Cambridge Program and, I emphasize, cheating is the culture of Estero High School. This happens on all levels of this high school because the school will do nothing at all to a child who cheats. They can give them a 'warning', which means practically nothing. This is not a review of the Cambridge Program, but the administration allows this to continue because they like having a Cambridge School will such a huge number of kids in there. They even lowered the GPA requirement, making our program so much poorer in its already low state. Furthermore, the 'dress code' is extremely subjective, depending on the person and their gender.

My experience at Estero High School has been superior and I've enjoyed every moment every second of the day at school. Although there were times that I did struggle, my teachers were always there to help me succeed; the teachers/staff at Estero High are very generous and full of good vibes that made each day a privilege to learn. What I liked about Estero High was there commitment into helping each individual student set their future towards the right pathway. From being a freshman 3 years ago into being a senior now there is nothing I would like to see change at Estero High, it is perfect the way this high school is and in all honesty the students and staff are what make Estero High School a wonderful school.
I was glad that some teachers took the time to bond with their students to create trust and mutual respect. There were also several teachers who were extremely passionate about their subjects. However, many teachers just handed out packets to be filled out, and seemed more disinterested than the students. I feel that the school would benefit from having more engaging educators.
