Overall EFHS isint a bad school, but it's not the best it could be. We have laptops that should help with education, but often are not used to their full potential. Some of the teachers are very motivated and you can tell they love their job! It is very obvious which teachers do not, and it shows by the lack of effort they put into class work for students. The school is run on a block schedual which helps students finish courses faster, however sitting in a class for 90 minutes staring at a laptop everyday is often boring, and learning is no longer fun. Especially when teachers don't have class work planned for the day. The students at EFHS are bright and get along with a lot of people. Some of the sport teams are great with amazing coaches!

Estrella Foothills High School was an amazing school! The teachers and staff are always pushing you and motivating you to work hard. They push you to strive and to try out new things. As a student you always feel comfortable to express yourself and to try new classes or sports. I encouraged my little sisters to attend this school themselves. Shes now a Junior and she loves it. My little sister now says she is going there too. I am proud to say I was a student at Estrella Foothills High School.
I have spent all four years at Estrella and have loved almost every minute of it. There have been countless events where I have made memories I will forever cherish. As a member of Student Body and Spiritline, I have attempted to put together events that I felt would be a great memory before leaving high school. However, the events rarely got approved because of our strict principal. Meanwhile, other schools in our district would get the same events approved. This was always discouraging, but I still managed to have a wonderful four years as an Estrella Foothills High School student.
