My overall experience has been good at Etowah High School. I feel safe and confident with the staff and administration. I do feel there is room for improvement in attention given to average students for college placement and scholarship opportunities. Much of the focus is placed on the high ACT scoring students and the others are lost in the shuffle or no attention is afforded to them because of lower scores. I believe this causes them to become discouraged and they do not feel as confident or worthy. I also feel that the communication with students should be one on one and not sent out in mass text during school hours. This is distracting and impersonal and it does not provide the needed attention some students may need because of lack of resources in the home environment. Thanks for your consideration for this scholarship opportunity.

My experience at Etowah High School has been phenomenal. I have never seen a teacher turn a student down for help. That is something that really impacts the students at Etowah High School, the teachers care. They are willing and ready to help with anything they can or direct you to someone that can help. They help to get you involved with the school while still keeping the focus on schoolwork and goal-setting.
