My experience at Etowah High School as been a wild ride. As a junior, I will be graduating with the Class of 2020. With the help of my amazing counselor and teachers, I have the opportunity to do this. Teachers at Etowah High School go the extra mile to make sure all students succeed. All administration go the extra mile to insure safety throughout the school. EHS has by far exceeded my expectations. Football games, Pep Rallies, Basketball Games, Track Meets and/of any event, is so much fun! At Etowah, everyone is accepting with their arms spread wide. High School is all about building memories!

So far, all the teachers I have had are all really amazing. They explained and taught things really well. However, I feel like the counselor here could use some more work. They are not very helpful with anything. I am also a dual enrollment student and there was much to lean on when it came to the counselors. Aside from that I feel like I enjoy the clubs; I am in the marching band and the director is really nice and the activity is extremely fun!
Our school is the biggest high school in Cherokee County since we have an outdoor campus. There have been some ups and downs throughout each school year. We celebrated and honored each and every sport from football to swimming. Teachers and coaches are very helpful to students. They teach their subjects and give pointers about life ahead. I am very thankful for my teachers because they gave me an amazing experience during high school. Our class conversations are very intriguing in a comfortable atmosphere. Friday mornings, the band plays music to get us in a cheerful spirit for football. We are very proud of our sports teams and clubs because our number one goal is to be the best especially against our rival, Woodstock High School. I got to be apart of the Etowah Swim team. Wehave won Cherokee County champions for the last four years. The team in general has such great people. They are very talented, encouraging, and supportive throughout my journey swimming with them.
