No support here, students are not encouraged to go to college. Administration is a joke. My kids have been to a few high schools now due to military moves and this is by far the worst experience.

This school system has a lot of resources, but they don't use them very well. They have a lot of misplaced pride. If you have a special needs student, just save yourself time and hire a lawyer from the start. Getting services out of this system is like trying to mine diamonds from dried playdoh. The only thing this system has going for it are the teachers. Too bad they are too busy playing politics and not enough time utilizing the full potential of their staff.

I would give it no stars if I could. My son has been in several different schools due to the Military. And this one is the worst by far. The staff is not helpful and he hates going to school everyday. I could go on and on but it's not worth it. He will be out of there soon.Thank god.

My son entered EHS in the 11th grade. He had been in the Enterprise School System for grades 4-7 and moved to nearby New Brockton for 8-10. When we moved back to Enterprise, we were very happy to have him enter EHS. EHS is a very modern facility. There are still a few dinosaurs (teachers) that wander the halls, but overall the GOOD outweighs the bad. Overall - the school has STRONG leadership and GREAT academic programs. Some of the teachers need to leave or retire. Those that need to leave would fit in well with a few of the surrounding schools that don't have strong ANYTHING.

Enterprise High School has all the things greatschool.org requires for a great school. In the 3 years I attended school there, I had many excellent teachers. The school's head principal thinks of the students as his children, and he does his best to make the school a wonderful place to learn. As for challenging academic programs, EHS offers many AP and advanced courses for the students willing to push themselves. All together, I don't think I could have asked for a better high school education. I was leaps and bounds more prepared for college courses than some of my college classmates, and I had completed almost a full year of college credit while at EHS.

Enterprise is amazing. All the teachers care about every student. They aren't just there for money, they stay well afterschool to help you. Learning comes first, all teachers are prepared and standards are really high. We have great morals and the bully rate is extremley low, for no current high school, EHS is far above the best. We support everyone, Military Kids are a huge part of our school, More than the Majority of them say that EHS is one of the best schools they've been to. So if you are moving to enterprise or near and are looking into this school, don't hesitate i assure you that you/ your child will love it.

Wow, i am a military kid, i've been to many schools. This is by far the best, we don't even have a actual building yet [[due to a tornado]] but we still exceed in acadimics and activities. The support and love in this school is so high. I love it,and i dread the day highschool ends.

EHS is a great school system. As with any other school system there are good and bad teachers. The principals and counselors are excellent. In recent months the administration and most of the teachers have shown their strength and courage. Way nto go Wild Cats!

I have never been more pleased. One of my girls just graduated and the other will be a junior. I think you will always encounter personality conflicts, however, the assistant principal, Mr. Graves, is wonderful as well as the counselors. One of the best teachers we have ever had the pleasure of educating our children is Mrs. Steger. A true gem! I would also like to comment that due to the love and support of this faculty our children survived the devastating effects of the Tornado that destroyed our high school on 1 March 2007. Yes, we lost 8 beautiful students but they also saved and protected (some risking their own lives) over 1000! We will forever be indebted to the staff at Enterprise High! Go Wildcats!

Enterprise High School is a very good school. However there are only a handful of good teachers who actually care about the students.

I graduated from EHS in 2001 and as an Army brat, I can tell you, EHS is one of the best schools I've ever been to. The teachers care about the students and there are so many excellent extracurricular activities to choose from. award-winning extracuricular activities such as Band, Choral music program and JROTC. EHS excels above many of the local schools. This school is supportive to military dependents and their families too. Like the previous post says, all schools have their problems, but I can honestly say, going to high school at EHS is one of my best memories.

I attended EHS from 1998-2001, and I absolutely loved my time spent there. All of the teachers have high expectations of their students. The choral music department is excellent, and there are several extracurricular activities to choose from. I am a teacher in Georgia, and I know how important parental involevement is. There is a high level at EHS. If anyone reading this review is considering a move to Enterprise, AL, you can be assured that this is a top-notch institution.

First of all i want to say that the people who posted in August and December 2005 don't know what they're talking about. i noticed they both wrote about supposed 'hush-hush policy' or 'hush-ups' but failed to mention an example. I was a student there three years and was very surprised to read that because i never heard anything like that happening. Enterprise High School has a great reputation for academics as it was listed one of the top hundred high schools in the country a few years ago which is saying a lot considering Alabama's poor reputation for education.

I was a student at Enterprise High School, graduating in 1998. I now teach in a school system in north Alabama. From my experience here, I can tell you that EHS may have flaws (as EVERY school will, because it is run by humans) but the experiences and the options available to students at EHS are far superior to those at many other schools. EHS offers courses that actually teach students something, instead of simply offering what is required of the state. I am so convinced that EHS is a great school that I hope to move back to the area by the time my sons start school, to ensure they receive the same quality education!

Two years experience with this school I can say I have been continuously disappointed. Thriving on a military community I feel the school lacks total support for military families and their dependents. Many things are 'hidden' from view, hush-hush policy and very much a 'buddy-system' within the admin. A name goes a long way if you are lucky enough. Money definitely talks here. Athletics are strong and there are many extra-curriculars to choose from but the atmosphere given is not one of 'students come first'. Would not be my first choice if given one.

Well, I am not a parent, but a student. I am a senior this year and I can't wait to escape. Not that I hate school. I love learning don't get me wrong. But a lot of hush ups happen here. Unless you get attatched to a teacher by butt kissing or by throwing money around while the principals and teachers frantically scramble for it, you're pretty much an outcast in classes. Some teachers such as Mrs. Wingate and Senora Covington (from the teachers I had) don't mind creative points of views and interruptions as long as everyone has fun and learns. I learned more from them than any teacher who keeps strictly to the lesson plan with no breaks. Bullying is overlooked as well as favoritism and dress code violations by wealthy children. I can't wait for college where academics is the major concern. One more year! -Elizabeth

This school system neither requires special ed students to pass the GED nor do they offer GED testing. The parent complaining about his/her child having to take the GED has either misspoken or was misleading in his/her comment. I am not just defending the system because I teach in it (at the high school, to be exact), but because the information in the review is incorrect.

I am a 2004 graduate of Enterprise High School. There is not a better school system to have attended and graduated from. I graduated with honors and found it easy to get envolved with extracurricular activites.

I am the parent of two EHS graduates and I was very pleased with the quality of education they received at the school. One son is graduating from college this spring, the other is successfully completing his sophomore year. Both attend college on full academic scholarships. EHS's college prep curriculum with many honors and AP classes aided their success in college. EHS also has very good technical-vocational curriculum for students not college bound. I found the staff and faculty to be extremely concerned in providing positive environment for the students to grow. Only negative I experienced was with the JROTC program which I cannot recommend to any student. My sons were involved in clubs and the music program in addition to their classroom studies, and all were well organized and provided good experiences. EHS does love it's athletics, but as a non-sporting parent I did not find bias towards athletes.

About the disablilities you should have sent him to Hillcrest Elementary where they specifically deal with this kind of situation! The schools are great and is one of the best and definitely the most finacially stable set of schools in the state! Kudos to The Big Three who paved the way... Morgan, Carter, and Bacon!

Driver's Education is NOT decided alaphabetically. It is decided by birthdates. Students are placed in Driver's Education according to when they will turn 15 years old. They must get their driver's permit during the time they are enrolled in Driver's Education in order to successfully complete the course.

Teachers are extremely well-qualified, caring, helpful and accommodating; While safety is a priority, academics pursuits definitely come first. One of Alabama's best-kept secrets.

Drivers Ed: This school gives drivers ed alpabeticly instead of by birth date which is rediculous for parents trying to pay for automobile insurance when the child obtains his/her licence.

This school is not appropriate for children with disabilites. My son is a speical education student that I have pushed to achieve graduation standards like children without disabilities. For three years this school has built our hopes that they were achieving this goal. After all the build up and money spent on caps and gowns,pictures,and invitations. Two weeks before the big day they inform us that my son can not graduate because he didn't pass a GED. Yes, they require special education students to pass the GED test and obtain the required credits for graduation. I have pulled my son from this system in disapointment, not to mention my son's self esteem. He did pass the GED with the help of the junior college, and now is enrolled in a state university in LA. He is also doing alot better.
