Excel High School 5

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.

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 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.
