This school, albeit large, is very incorporating. There are an abundance of extracurricular activities such as sports and clubs. There is also a wide variety of electives students can partake in. The academics are fairly challenging, yet extremely rewarding. Great school!

As an alum of EHS and the sibling of a current student, I can say that this high school does a good job preparing student for universities if the student has the drive and dedication to do well. While the teachers and other faculty members do their best to give opportunities to all students, they leave it up to the individual teenagers to take up those opportunities available to them. The academic assistance programs are helpful and involved in the progress of the students and try to actively involve parents in the IEP process.
My family moved to this school district years ago to ensure we recieved the best education they could provide. I graduated over a decade ago, so I can't speak to recent changes, but most of us never realized how lucky we were until moving away from this rural area and understanding what an average or acceptable school really implies. Most of us were pushed to succeed, lived in a safe environment, and went on to college. I was challenged more at Exeter high than I ever was in college. This was a sad realization, but reflects the fact most high schools don't prepare students anywhere near the level Exeter does.
