This has got to be one of the worst schools ever. Instead of giving student report cards they give the students progress reports. Sometimes the teachers don't even put in all of the grades but then if there not putting in all of the grades now it seems as if your child is failing now isn't that crazy. The front office always have a lot of students in there doing the faculty job. I don't even know why they built this school.

I have had two duaughters graduated out of Erwin High School and I'm just proud to say that Van Phillips have really turn things around. One year at the parent teacher meeting he stood there and politely said to all teachers, parents, and students and he said if you are tired of teaching then stop but if you don't wont to teach then leave. He also came behind that and said that he asked God when he is tired of being a principal maybe he has something planned for him. But, if you are here to teach then teach. That was the year when everything changed. Thank God! For that.

Mr.Phillips and Mrs.Genise Reid should be the only two principals. Some of the teachers and assistant principals are the problems at this school and I'm not excluding some of our children. Parents, it start at home! If we can move the childish teachers and assistants our school will much better.

I graduated from Erwin in May of 2005. I attended Erwin from 5th grade until graduation. I love this school to death. I am filled with pride and still attend sporting events and represent my alma mater. However, I felt cheated in my education. It is not 100% Erwin's fault. I blame most of it on Jefferson County Schools for not giving us the same funding and support given to the, to be perfectly honest, white schools in the county system when I went there. My Senior year was absolutely horrible. We were denied most priveliges of a high school that year, i.e. a band, pep rallies, homecoming week... However, if you want a strong, spirited, close knit group of individuals who will support each other for years to come after graduation, you will not find it at a better school.

I went to Erwin from kindergarden all the way up to my mid senior year. It had its ups and downs, but the key word here is had. This school as gotten so much better when i was there. I moved out of the district and they found out. Im now at MJHS and if i could go back to Erwin i would give anything to. Erwin is so much better than this school. I miss you Erwin!!!!- Shannon K.

I'm a current student at Erwin High School and I do believe that the school is much better than it was maybe 4 years ago. I think that this rating on this website does not give Erwin enough praise. The parent involvement is tremendous now. I'm in the band and I've never seen that many parents at a concert in years. As for extracurricular activities are football team was 7-3 and our basketball team hasn't lost a game yet.

I gaduated from i left Erwin in 2007, and I think I left the school for the most part satisfied. I can say alot of bad things about this school, but none of them would be about the quality of education I received. I feel as though I left with a very high quality of education, and that anyone who comes to Erwin and studies hard, but at the same time tries to stay out of trouble, you can mantain a great education. As far as the teachers are concern, they will only help those who they feel want to be helped, they don't waste their time trying to discipline those who want to act foolishly, which at times can be their down fall.
