Enterprise is filled to the brim with school spirit! The teachers are always willing to help those who ask for it and there are plenty of clubs and sports to join! Enterprise is awesome with athletics, arts, and academics (3-A). There's defiantly something for everyone!
It is a safe school. Copy and paste the following link from the California Department of Education and compare the numbers. http://dq.cde.ca.gov/dataquest/Expulsion/ExpReports/DistrictExp.aspx?cYear=2010-11&cChoice=DstExp1&cCounty=45&cNumber=4570136&cName=Shasta+Union+High The coaches (the most on-campus coaches in the area) and teachers have a great feel for what is going on and stay on top of issues. They hold kids accountable and get the most out of the kids. EHS is the 3-A school: Academics, Athletics and Arts. The kids feel connected to EHS, thus the school spirit is unmatched by any school in the area. I know test scores don't show an accurate picture of the teaching going on. EHS services all kids to include a high number of students with diverse needs. When you compare kids that go off to college they EHS students are just as prepared and successful as any student in the area. EHS consistently has students attending MIT, Harvard, Stanford, etc.
I love going here. The music program is awesome and the teachers are wonderful. Wouldn't want to be anywhere else.
My son spent 4 years here and My daughter is currently a sophmore. I could not be more happy with Enterprise as a parent. I really appreciate the music program and I think it has helped my kids with other aspects of their high school experience. Keeping the kids in the hardest classes has really paid off and I recomend other parents push their childeren academically also.. they will have better teachers and more of a challenge to their kids.
We've got the spirit, we've got the tradition, we've got everything.
I've attended EHS for 1 year, and so far...it is just like any other school. There is nothing that brings it above average except for their music program, which im not in. However, most of the teachers are pretty awesome and easy to communicate with. I am going to take and AP english class next year, and my teacher has already helped me out a lot with my summer home work. Some of the students here may have bad reputations, but you dont have to let that affect you. I have made some great friends here. Overall, i think that this school is worth coming to.
My experience with my daughter's school has been fantastic. I have found most all of her teachers to be caring and capable, not to mention accessible. I did meet one time with the administration and I found the principal to be someone who listened to my concerns and helped me to correct a problem in one of my daughter's classes. We moved here from out of the area and I am glad that Enterprise is a school that respects differences and yet has high expectations of it's students. She feels comfortable with the students (says they are friendly and not cliquish) and feels the teachers expect her to do her best. We did visit the two other schools in the area but preferred the administration and counselor at Enterprise. We made the choice for our daughter. Finally, a school for my daughter that I can place my confidence in!
With the exception of a small handful of select instructors who truly do care, the rest of the staff leave much to be desired. From a parental standpoint it usually requires threats to contact the school board to get any kind of response.
I have been at Enterprise High School for a few months now, and I have to say, Its not what I expected. The teachers really don't care and seem stubborn and unwilling to help. Most of the kids have horrible attitudes and bad reputations, and the school seems to worship the sports programs, mainly the football teams. And the band team attracts similar attention too. I cant wait till I get out of this school, and find a place that is not filled with wanna-be gangsters, who's vocabularies consist of only slurs and cuss words. And no offense to the parents, but until you have attended this school, (which some of you may have), then you can't really say this school is great. The staff just puts on an act that they really care at all.
I have attended Enterprise High School for four years and I can safely say that this school has a 'variety' of excellent music, athletics, and academic programs. Students are encouraged to excel by their teachers, are very approachable, and always willing to help. Administration is always seen around campus talking to students and disciplining those who need it. There is a place for every student in the numerous clubs offered throughout the year. The music department directors do not turn down any student eager to explore their musical capabilities; they are willing to work with those who seek direction. Overall, Enterprise is the school that parents in the Redding area should send their kids to. I could not have asked for a better high school experience.
Even though I've been at Enterprise for a few months, I know enough to say that it's a horrible. For academics, there are Honors and AP classes are offered but there is not much of a variety. The teachers are unwillingly to help with work, the staff is not friendly, student's reputations are awful, and much more. Students are not nice, and to get through high school, you need friends. The sports program has a variety, yet it is too competitive. The only good reason to put your child at Enterprise is because of the music program. But, you need a lot of experience in order to fit into that program. Overall, do not send your kids here. And, there is only one bus offered so majority of the kids have to walk home in heavy traffic in a metro area. That is not safe. Do not send your kids here.
Wow! I was told to send my daughter to Enterprise by the principal in my own district of Palo Cedro (which is also a great school)because of her interest in music. We were prepared to send her off to a private music school in Southern California. Can't say enough wonderful things about the influence the music teachers and parent volunteers have had on our daughter and my son even transfer from a great private school to get in on the fun. The teachers we have had are for the most part great, campus is clean and everyone is friendly. The administration handles problems efficiently and is very courteous to everyone who comes on campus. Lots of opportunites for those willing to apply themselves.
This school is not very good. They offer little in the way of extra curricular activities, and the staff leaves something to be desired. They have good intentions, introducting new and innovative programs that, unfortunately, aren't well researched. These programs are inneffective, or have no follow through. My self and my cousing were both part of the CAAMP program, and the way the program was set up let to difficulties in testing and in applying for college. Also, I had a new principal every year I was in attendance there.
I attended EHS for 2 years, and I feel that in the core classes and even electives, the majority of teachers are willing to stay extra hours for their students, its not that help is not provided, students just do not take advantage of its avalability. There is also a tutoring program avaliable after school that is free of charge. As far as extra cericular activities, EHS has some of the best sports teams in Shasta county, and the Music department is spectacular. I can't speak for sports, but anyone can join music, some talent certainly helps, but music does not discriminate, the willingness to be there alone will allow you to succeed. Enterprise is also the only school in the Shasta Union district which hosts a JROTC program (Naval branch) to teach leadership skills, respect, and personal pride. Overall, Enterprise High School is a good school.
I think EHS is a great hight school, certainly the best in Redding. Their athletics program is great, and their music program is amazing. The teachers are caring and the academics program is also great! EHS is a very diverse school, great for any type of student, whether they're into sports, music, journalism, or getting a good education.
Prior to my son coming to this school, he had an outstanding scholastic record. The classes are too big, the teachers too willing to ignore an obvious need for more personalized help. The school's unwillingness to provide simple bussing for my child infuriates me. We are within the bussing 'area of need' the school itself predetermined. Yet because my children are 1.1 miles further than the traditional 'last stop' The school refuses to go that extra mile for one of its students and we are even on the SAME street as the school itself is. My son should not be forced to walk 4 miles in heavy traffic to go to school. I should not be forced to drive him every day either! It has been pointed out that it is causing a hardship to our family as we have a home business I am forced to leave unattended twice a day to taxi my children to and from school. If I weren't so 'near' this school I would switch my boy out and put him into a real school.
The school is great if you are a jock, in music or wealthy. Anyone who does no fit into these categories is pretty much a non-entity. The sports as well do not seem to be particularly equal-opportunity. I don't believe it to be well-rounded as schools go; and with all the great incoming teachers-to-be it is unfortunate older, unenthusiastic staff remain, particularly in the English department which could be much better.
My child attended another high school in this district and I am more that happy to have her going to Enterprise than I was having her at the other school. She does will here and the staff is so helpful. They will go out of their way to help anyone in need.
