This school saved my child's life. She was a victim of bullying at her previous high school, not only causing her grades to drop but instilling a fear in her that no child should ever have to experience. I had countless meetings with counselors and school officials who did nothing. Because the school failed to protect her time after time I had no choice but to remove her from the situation and pull her out for good. That was when I found CFAHS. Although my daughter was not the typical alternative student, she was accepted and has thrived ever since. She is set to graduate 6 months early with 100% in every class. She is concurrently enrolled in college, which the school is paying for, and maintains straight A's in all 3 of those courses as well. CFAHS curriculum includes requirements for things like CPR & First Aid, Community Service, ACT Testing, Resume' Writing, Applying to College & Career Portfolio, just to name a few. These things are not required, and are rarely even offered, at other public schools. The kids are taught responsibility and accountability and are judged by their peers if they mess up. I would give CFAHS 100 stars if I could!
Englewood has it's good aspects and a few stigmas. The education I received during the four years I spent there was fantastic. There are a lot of different electives to choose from along with higher level/college courses available. Like it's said about everything else, you get out what you put in. Administration did everything they could to help students and staff achieve their true potential. The teachers put the students ahead of everything else. If you didn't get anything educational out of the coursework, you did learn the hidden curriculum of hard work and societal morals. All in all, it wasn't a bad school. The students who didn't care categorized it as a bad place. Most of the stigmas included that EHS students are incompetent, lazy, and deviants. This was the earlier EHS and those stigmas were deteriorated with our band winning first place at state, numerous scholarships won by our students, and well... we have a twenty-first century STEM program. The old Englewood lives on with the alumni and community. The new Englewood will thrive another century as well.
I am very happy with our experience at EHS. They haven't lost the community concept. They offer several upperlevel classes and a good variety.
Englewood is a small community with a small school district. My son has been attending Englewood Schools for 6 years. While not a top rated distrct the classes are generally small and the teachers are very involoved with the students.
I am a former student of EHS. I loved this school! I went to Arapahoe High School (a top rated CO school), my freshman year and chose to return to Englewood schools because I just wasn't cutting it at AHS. And it wasn't the school's fault by any means. The atmosphere at EHS was just a better fit for me. I graduated with a 3.9 GPA. I enjoyed Englewood because it's on block schedules. In my opinion, that allowed for more time to really study and learn about the course we were taking. Also, due to the school being a bit smaller, I personally feel that students are given more one on one attention then at the bigger schools. I also feel that I was better prepared for college due to EHS and it's teachings.
I am loving Englewood! I would never switch to another school if I had the chance to. If you are a parent I would definitely look in to this school and its academics. The teachers are great and so is the environment
I am currently attending Englewood High School and I can honestly say that I detest it here. As soon as the semester comes to its closing, I am certainly transferring. There are many students there that think they are 'the toughest kid on the block', and are sent into a frenzy when given the slightest wrong look. The environment is acidulous. While its base academics are on par with many of the other schools, that is all it has going for it. Englewood recently decided to cut many electives. The fact is, colleges want a well rounded student, not just academic wise. Judging by what I see from my peers at this school, there is a vast majority that just don't want to try. If you want your son/daughter to enter an average school and get an average job then think Englewood.
The school is a very good place for all the children. They are provided with a save learning environment, and teachers that get along with the students on a friend to friend basis. My daughter had never been excited about math until her sophmore year when she got the best math teacher ever(in her own words), Mr. John Lawless. In my oppinion Englewood High School is the best school you could possibly send your child to.
the atmosphere that the student body and the teachers make in this school is really accepting. its a fun and easy learning environment.
