I was a transferring sophomore last school year and walking in to such a big school had me overwhelmed but everyone was so welcoming and friendly which had me enjoy coming to school to see my friends and get involved in sports and extra curricular activities. I love how there are numerous clubs, sports, and activities that are for every individual and that there are summits for different races and identities. I’ve never seen that before. Because this school pulls from many different areas it showed me a variety of different people and how we come together sharing the same interests no mater our background, race, identity or sexual orientation. It is a very inclusive school, but has a few flaws regarding some of the policies, cafeterias and cleanliness. I am very happy at this school and it is bringing me many exciting opportunities!

ETHS is such a vast high school with loads of different faces, cultures, personalities, etc. ETHS is very embracive for its' minorities and is filled with many welcoming faces! It's very easy to not find your own niche for a little while, that's not to say there won't be clubs or people you'll get along. There is no doubt you'll feel the lively school spirit and the passion people have for change in their country and in their high school.
ETHS teachers are interested in you as students and are very much understanding of not only you as an individual (they never look down at you), but push you to learn and see your limits. They seek to better their classes and the materials they bring forth to you, they're never robotic.
The facilities are a bit poor and the lunch can be unsatisfactory, but besides that, if you reach out and let yourself be open to the diversity and passions ETHS has to offer, your experience will be grand.
Since Evanston Township was an extremely big school, you always had the chance to meet someone new almost everyday and join all types of activities/clubs. Also at Evanston, there were many academic and career resources. For example, there was a college and career center where people would help you get jobs throughout your high school career, or even help with scholarships and applications for college!
