Etowah High School Reviews

I have been a student at Etowah for four years now. In my opinion, the school is excellent! It has served me as a great launchpad for college in that the staff has found the right balance between forcing academic independence and giving students help when help is needed. As a school, it rewards hardwork and shuts down any problems that may need to be stopped. Overall, I feel that if there was an experience I wanted to participate in, the Etowah teachers and administrators would help me in my goals. An example of this was when I wanted to apply for a certain government internship where I would require a school delegation. I easily scheduled a meeting with my principal where he made calls to ensure me a delegation! Overall, I am very happy with my experience as a student here and feel prepared to enter College.

I had a great time while I was at Etowah High School. The teachers are very good and the administration was just as good! I played football during my time at Etowah and the coaches were very good and they offered to help anyone that needed help in any way possible. Most of the teachers have an open door policy and truly care about the students that they teach. The administration, as well as multiple teachers helped me to receive a nomination to the United States Air Force Academy so that I could serve my country, and I will eventually commission in the United States Air Force Academy (in 2020).
Etowah High School is a fairly average 9-12 grade high school. Academically it usually has fairly good results. Quite a lot of funding goes into many different sports, and there are clubs or teams for almost any topic, including sports, academics, recreation, or fine arts. The fine arts department is not nearly as well funded as the sports teams, but the teachers are extremely talented. The current Chorus director, William Hall, has been able to take his top chorus to ACDA Southern Regionals. The EHS baseball team has placed in the state or regionals for the past 2 years. However, the campus is fairly old and run-down, with quite a few insects and other creatures. The campus is split by a road, and it takes roughly 8-9 minutes to walk from one side to the other. Overall, Etowah High School is fairly average, but is known for being one of the better public schools in the Metro-Atlanta area.
