I'm a member of the class of 98 and my time at EHS was pretty good. When I was there they were a 3 sport school ( basketball, football, and baseball ) I didn't like that . But I heard they added more sports to the program and that's great. Education wise Excel is a great school and family oriented.

It is true, EHS does have some valuable assets. But, there are drawbacks to living in a small town. The educators try, but there is no way that they can reach every single student in such large classes. Diversity is another aspect of Excel that is lacking; for instance, there are few minorities represented within the student body. I know from experience that this causes animosity among students and teachers. Another negative is that the football team is the grounding for the school. Taking time out of one's day to go to a pep rally rather than learning the basic rules of grammar, logic, philosophy, or language is not an excellent use of children's mental resources. Boys and men are catered to within the EHS - girls sports, activities, and training are not at the core of the schools values. Women are not allowed, or sincerely discouraged, to take Agricultural Science (Ag) or Shop classes. This severely limits the potential of those women who graduate from Excel. It also reinforces negative, stereotypical gender roles. Speaking of gender roles, sexuality is highly discouraged - leaving students to explore dangerous territory. Homosexuality is out of the question as well.

I am not a parent, but I am a 2004 graduate. The school is the best! It has a very friendly atmosphere, and the teachers are great. The teachers are always eager to help students in any way they can be of assistance.

Though I am not a parent of a child who attended EHS, I did graduate from there. I enjoyed the environment and the closeness that my fellow peers and I had. It's a wonderful school! The teachers and administration were great, and more personable to talk to about problems or anything else we felt that was on our minds.

I agree with the last review. If you're born there, it's better. However, if you're not from there, especially if you're from another state, it can be very difficult. The teachers do a wonderful job but the administration is so-so. My kids loved it because they had great teachers.

Great school if you were born in excel, If not it's very difficult for your child to fit it. Only those born here reap the benefits, especially if your parent is a teacher here.
