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.
just a concern parent trying to keep intouch with childs progress in school,i know that a lot of times the school will seen letters home with the student but some time those letters dont make it home.
im a student and everyone is nuce sweet and accepting the teachers love to he us and is pround to be here
I graduated from Excel. This was some of the best times of my life. Close friends and caring teachers. This is the best school in the county.
So Im a student in ehs and I can say that everyone in the school is very close to one another..We are taught to be leaders and have great citizenship.We all work together to make our school and town a better place .We hold alot of sports and club with the rule of an overall average or better : I can say excel is one of the few school you can grow tto a wonderful family as students and teachers we all work together
My son is a student and his father is a graduate from EHS, by far this is the best school in the county. His father and I would not send him anywhere else, the teachers and staff are great. We are keeped informed with his progress and that is very important to us. Thank you EHS for a wonderful job well done.
I am a former student at EHS that is by far the best school in monroe county educational and athletic wise. I am very proud of the education I have recieved there and cant wait to send my children there.
i am a graduate from excel and all 3 of my children went to excel.my youngest is a senior this year.excel has the best staff in the county and they should be proud of the job they do every day
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.
My husband and I are both graduates of Excel School. Our two childen are also students. It is a wonder school, enviorment friendly, and very close nit. I recommend it to anyone!
