I like Evanston township high school because they give you so many options in case you need help on homework, tests, upcoming quizzes, making there no reason ever to fail a grade. If you ever have a hard time on studying or work this is a great school for you, but that doesn’t mean you’ll get all A’s all through out if your not trying. You have to put work at this school. You can still get detention or a bad grade but it normally on the you not the school. The school does have cuts on some sport which can get annoying since there’s more than 5,000 students , other than that the band is really good here if you enjoy doing that. A big school but schedule simple to follow. Seniors have it the best at this school. Football games are the best! I have a great LOUD funny set of friends, there’s some rude people but ignoring or moving away from them is easy.

You can basically take any class you want and explore any interest you want there. You can also do basically any sport or activity, and if you start as a freshman the sports are usually no cut. They try really hard to make the school seem like a community because itś so large. There are always a bunch of interesting people speaking at the school. The teachers are all really great, and the school won hold you back from taking high level classes. You can make your expirence and your education what you want really. There are a bunch of oppertunities and challenges, but you can also take really easy classes and slack off. If you want a great education here you can get it, itś really up to you. ETHS is a really great school!
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!
