Evansville High School Reviews

The AP classes are definitely rigorous and the content is applicable to the real world. Some of the teachers are great and competent but the others are not quite all there. Overall, the students are split- I would say about a third of them in each grade actually care about their academics. The administration is not strict enough about especially student athlete’s grades nor the general punishment policy. Our principle is wonderful though, he is a very busy man but he gets a lot done at the school.

Most of the teachers really care and try to teach and make a difference in their student's lives. Unfortunately, with the new phone and backpack rules, it causes slight "separation" in the direction the school is headed. With graduating in May of '19, I can say that the school is finally getting their stuff together to help seniors better prepare for college, but their ACP days often felt useless and not needed.
Evansville High School is unique school. Like most towns in the midwest, we are small and agriculturally focused. We have many classes dealing with agriculture and an entire wing of our building dedicated to "shop classes". On the other hand we have strong AP, computer sciences, and music programs. One thing our high school does every spring is a musical. This show is always incredible and draws crowds from all over southern Wisconsin. Another thing that is nice about our school us that the teachers are very concerned for your well being and want to see you succeed. Most teachers will give up lunch or time after school inorder to make sure you get the help you need. The students at Evansville, for the most part, are friendly and inviting. We have a wide variety of people that are interested in many things.
