Eureka Junior/Senior High School Reviews
There are many wonderful teachers who would do anything for students, but then again there are the other teachers who don't care at all. Once again we are faced with the importance of sports over education. The teachers that don't care are the ones who are coaches. The teachers that can't teach are the ones who are coaches. It seems to be a sad increasing trend with all American schools that they hire sports over education and it needs to stop. Overall, the biggest problems aren't with the teachers, its with administration and government funding. I have been threatened and harassed by Eureka administration and I know I'm not the only student, teacher or parent to say so.
Overall, this school is the prime example of small town mentality. Some people crave it, the gossip, the name, the popularity, others can't stand it. Well, I'm here to say that people who don't have the name hate it. If you have the name, you get whatever you want. It also comes down to he who screams the most gets the most, and inconsistencies arise when one person makes a big deal and gets what they want and another student doesn't get it. When it comes to sports, Eureka is very accommodating but I've had to fight just to take the class I wanted in my schedule, and gone above and beyond the effort and hard work required to reach my goals, and then still had to fight for the classes I wanted to take. Excuse after excuse was given to me when I was told I couldn't take a class, and took them anyway. So, if you are reading this looking into Eureka as a possible school, I would tell you not to bring your children here. If you have no other choice but to go here then don't be afraid to fight for what you want and talk with the teacher before you talk to administration because they will be more friendly and more accommodating than the administration will be.
It was a great school focused on bettering education. They have some wonderful teachers, especially in the English and Science departments. The downfall of the school is that they spend way too much on athletics, instead of new books, they get new uniforms instead.
