Senior: E.O. Smith is a great community that allows other people from other towns to get an education. Not to mention that E.O offers a wide variety of college courses from UCONN, Eastern and Manchester Community College. UCONN allows students who go to E.O. to take their courses for free! When I graduate I will have over a semester of college credits done. What I would change is the amount of work load that we get as students. The average amount of time I spend on homework per subject is about two hours but at times it can be four hours.

Ellington High School
#66 Best Public High Schools in Connecticut
- Ellington Public Schools, CT
- Rating 3.6 out of 5 123 reviews
Junior: Ellington High School has a very close-knit family and community. We have a lot of unique traditions and student culture that makes us a very special school.
One of our biggest strengths is our Music Department, of which I am a very involved member. We have won awards at the Berklee Jazz Festival, Festival Disney, the National Jazz Festival, and sent individual students to All-Region, All-State, and All-National ensembles.
One thing Ellington High School could work on is creating more challenging curriculum. Sometimes, the bar is set to a point where "high-flyers" don't receive the same support that they might get at other schools. While opportunities do exist, like AP classes, they can sometimes conflict with each other in scheduling, or not rise to enough of a challenge.
All in all, however, I am glad to be an Ellington Knight!
