Etiwanda High School Reviews
Going to a school known by other kids as "Ghettowinda" instead of Etiwanda was a lot different than my expectations from other kids telling me exaggerated stories. My high school isn't ghetto, far from it with such caring staff and such a diverse amazing study body. I had such a growing experience from freshman year as a naïve quiet girl to a more knowledgeable, outspoken young lady.
Teachers are great, academics are very important to the school. Many improvements are being made and the principalhas great school spirit!
Overall, I would rate Etiwanda High School with four stars because of how interactive the principal is with our sports, arts and band department. The staffs here at Etiwanda are kind and provided whenever it is needed. One thing that I would change about this school is some of the teachers. As a student, I want my teachers to be nice, helpful, understanding and comfortable to be in the class with and learn from. A few teachers around campus have an attitude that affects the learning economy in their class while they have their bad days they also have their good days.
This school is mediocre and we can improve this school by making sure the kids do as told and don't talk back.
I would like to see more vegetarian options on the food menu because often times the menu has primarily meat. Additionally, I'd like to see more clubs being advertised on campus to promote student life and being involved on campus to make the school and the high school experience better.
The one things I enjoy most about Etiwanda high school is that the majority of the teachers show how much they care about their students by trying to do things based on what would better help us. Some things I think could change would be the
Etiwanda was a great high school to attend. As a freshman, I immediately was intrigued by all the different elective opportunities, the different sports available and the fine art programs such as dance and theater. I loved all of my teachers and felt well supported academically.
I really enjoyed my four years here. It has really prepared me for college and allowed me to create connections with people in my future career as well.
Etiwanda High School has a friendly environment that has the teachers that will ease your way into how the class works. Mostly every person you meet will be kind and friendly. But the food they present the students isn't up to par with the other schools.
I liked that the classes at this school challenged me for the most part and the different types of electives you could choose from. One thing that I would like to see change are the space in the classrooms. There are many students who go to this school and some classes are overcrowded, so some walking space between the rows of desks would be appreciated.
What I enjoyed most about Etiwanda is everyone’s desire to go further in life and the faculty trying their best to help the students reach their dreams. Everyday I go is tiring, but I’m glad to be a student here.
I went to this school for all my 4 years and it has been the best experience. Most of the people were nice and respected you and thats what made my 4 years go by.Filled with many memories that I will cherish for the rest of my life.
Etiwanda 's campus is bursting with energy and school spirit. A lot of people put tons of work into keeping the school a lively place, including ASB, and the academics are as good as an American public school can achieve. Despite this, the overall American school system is desparately in need of reform, and that need is visible on Etiwanda's campus. An example of a suitable campus for the American youth is present in the following link, which presents a fictional high school designed by my peers and I in our AP English class. https://schoolofthot.weebly.com/
My experience in coming to Etiwanda High was at first frightful, but it wasn't like that to their eyes. They welcomed every student with open arms with the Link Crew members and showed us that all students no matter the background mattered. I immediately made friends and was able to gain academic knowledge at an advance rate with teachers and staff members that taught students with passion and heart. The extracurricular activities here were very active to the point where students would stay at school for over two hours just to be dedicated in what they love to do. My overall experience here was amazing. Even if they are still developing as a school with new buildings and new classes, it felt like a complete high school experience.
My daughter just graduated from Etiwanda High school and it was great. Principal Jaramillo and his staff were all very good at what they do but especially in making parents and students feel welcomed. My daughter's counselor Nick Romero was with her every step of the way. He met with her in the beginning, middle, and end of year to see how she was doing and what steps were needed for her to complete the A-G requirements for UC and CSU along with high school graduation requirements. When in doubt he was always there to guide both her as a student and us as first time college parents. Teacher's had no problem communicating with us parents via phone, emails, and/or in person. The district's school loop made it easy for students and parents to keep track of daily grades, attendance, and activities. I have 3 more children that will be attending high school in the next few years and I know they'll have fun but most of all all the support to succeed. Go Eagle Pride!
My experience at Etiwanda High School is great because the teachers are very involved with their students and always put in extra time try to find ways to help their students better understand their class and get a better grade.
Etiwanda is very diverse which is great but the counselors are poor and some teachers are too. I would like to see the staff actually listen to the students and let them solve problems instead of only changing when parents get involved. Plus there’s overcrowding. My senior class had over 900 students.
