My experience as a student at Eureka Senior High School was amazing! Their many teachers are always available to help you when you need it. The school also has a variety of classes for you to choose from. I am also an athlete and enjoyed the many sports that they have such as football, basketball, track, and even volleyball!

Hard to stand out or be acknowledged, easily gives up on students instead of helping them (see independent study or zoe barnum), nepotism is a problem. Great theater program if that's your thing, scholarship opportunities if you look for them. If you're a hardcore student you can make it out of here with high honors, but if you aren't great at school it's easy to get lost in the crowd and left behind. Counselors aren't helpful and difficult to talk to, and each counselor serves hundreds of students. Loud environment, crumbling infrastructure. The gym is awful and you'll be forced to take two years of PE with unsympathetic teachers if you have a condition such as asthma. My grades didn't reflect my level of effort and knowledge and different teachers have different grading methods. If you have poor mental health of any, avoid this school. Class sizes too large to suit individual students needs. Same problems as any regular large public high school in this country.
I attended EHS for the music program which has been an integral part of my life as a student since elementary school. However, the music program is sorely lacking, the entire music department is run by a single teacher who is under qualified, to say the least. It has driven myself as well as multiple other students away from the program despite a love and craving of music and the friends made from participating. I have thoroughly enjoyed and appreciated attending High School at EHS (As far as one can enjoy high school) and know that it has helped to shape me into who I am now and who I aim to become.
