Eureka High School provided a safe and quiet environment to learn in. The teachers are always open to help anyone with questions at all times. Many of the teachers took time explaining things and allowed time for questions and review. College Readiness is definitely something Eureka High works on with their students. Each student is assigned a mentor during their Junior year, and the mentor works with their students to focus on taking standardized tests and getting into colleges. Some of the teachers held out of school review sessions for students to come in and practice for the ACT/SAT.
Eureka High School also has a wide variety of clubs, sports, and activities. The school has everything from FFA, dairy judging, Fight For Life, Student Council, wrestling, football, marching band, concert band, and cheer/dance. Overall, the school is very diverse for its students and provides an active and interesting environment for learning.

I love Eureka High School! There is a true sense of safety going to school here. I love our community and we accomplish great things at EHS. Last year alone our small school raised over $63,000 for St. Jude through our Fight For Life week. It goes to show what a giving and incredible community I live in.
Eureka High School has a lot to offer. The community is very involved with the school. This past year we did a Fight For Life Fundraiser for St. Jude Children's Research Hospital and raised over $63,000 just from our district alone. Eureka is a very special town. Eureka High School has prepared me for college in many ways, not only for the SAT, but also just college in general. Through my high school career I have taken 24 dual-credit hours. There is so much that is offered at Eureka High School and I am proud to be a part of it .
