We are not just demographically diverse but also work to have representation at the staff and administrative levels- which is huge! We hold full day summits for black students, latinx students, lgbtq+ students and south asian middle eastern students.
Transferring from Von Steuben Metropolitan Science Center to ETHS, I was introduced to many new clubs, sports and resources. With Evanston Township High School having 4 libraries, a planetarium, numerous engineering workshops ranging from metal working, autoshop, woodshop, along with 4 3D printers, 6 gymnasiums, a rock climbing wall, 12 tennis courts, 4 baseball fields, 2 soccer fields and a football field as well as four floors of classrooms, the ability to perfect your life at this high school is extremely possible. With what feels like there are 100 electives available, along with about 40 AP courses, Evanston Township High School is an extremely high performance school wherestudent success is their main objective, as there is a range from 32:1 to as low as 8:1 Student-teacher ratio, it is almost impossible to fail in Evanston.
ETHS sent me to three countries to widen my perspective: to Stratford, Canada twice to be immersed in Shakespearean and modern theater; to Riobamba, Ecuador, for an eighteen-day service and leadership-oriented experience; and across the main island, Honshu, of Japan for a seventeen-day cultural immersion exchange trip. Only a school that truly cares about the content of their students' learning outside of the textbook would allow such rich experiences. I am forever grateful.
