I went to this school last yeAr, as a freshmen. Worst school ever! The teachers don't care they have favorites. The counselers ,especially Monica Rivera doesn't met standards. Everyone's disrespectful. The school smelled like weed everyday. Few electives, unfairness. I don't recommend going there ever! I'd give negative 5 if I could.

Overly simple, many teachers do not meet standards. Very few electives and even fewer spare funds.Low income area.

Eureka High School offers an excellent band program, over 15 AP and honors classes, career pathways and a huge variety of art and Career Technical Education programs. Their sports department is also excellent. If you want your son or daughter to succeed in being prepared for college and beyond you won't go wrong with sending them here. The teachers go above and beyond to not only teach the material required to graduate, but they teach it in a way that is fun and memorable for the students.

My daughter entered her Freshman year at this school and after 3 weeks of a nightmare, we pulled her. We had just relocated with the military to Eureka from another CA location, when my daughter was so excited to start her high school years. WOW!! Normally a very lively, fun-spirited, and gracious young lady with good grades quickly became a sullen, depressed and lifeless individual. She gained weight, kept to herself, and began counseling. After finding another school for her to attend, we have our daughter back! There were 342 Freshman last year; however, 4 of them landed up transferring to North Coast Learning Academy School in Cutten. Thank you NCLA!!!

When I went to Eureka Senior High, the teachers were highly committed and respectful toward students. They offered an extensive amount of art, music, drama, literary and science classes.

Terribad School. Teachers pick favourites hardly helped me with any of my work, didn't work with alternate ways to study or teach. It was a 1 way only kind of teaching style. I didn't get help until I went on independent study away from this horrid school. Art, language and music programs keep getting cut and the student body is stuck up. The school board let go the GOOD teachers that actually assist in the learning process.

Certain counselors and teachers at this school gave me the extra boost needed to rise up, despite everything and graduate!! years after graduating, I can still walk into the school and find familiar faces and still be recognized by the staff as well,

When Bob Stephens left last year he left a void that The new principal Joseph Pawlick has been unsuccessful in filling. Morale is at an all time low, and his 're-designation' policy has caused community and family strife, and will likely lead to a higher drop out rate due to student disenfranchisement.

This is a terrible school with extremely poor leadership. Student services are so fragmented that students do not have access to them. There are some quality teachers, but the district had to lay off nearly a hundred of them due to budget cuts (administrative staff remains intact however...) In other words school resource allocation is top heavy, and very little good trickles down to the students, particularly those of lower socioeconomic status.
