I had two sons go to Eagle HS. A great school for Idaho, a good school for other areas in the US we have lived. Small enough, that kids can be on just about any sports team they desire. Some teachers fantastic, some not. I always found the principal accommodating. Our alphabetically assigned guidance counselor was not responsive, but I worked around that with another one who is extremely responsive. There are snobs, there are farmers… Both of my children found fantastic friends. And didn't let these distinctions affect their choice of friends. I wish they enforced the dress code more; More modest. It made me a little nervous how open the campus was. But it is standard in Idaho.
Classes are what you seek - they have a variety or AP and advanced classes. Also, common among public schools as may kids have attended private and IB schools used as my comparison, you have your share of disengaged and disrespectful kids who are a product of their home examples. School only has these 6-7 hours a day, the rest, the parents need to step up. In all, although not as strong academically as I would like, better than most public schools and the quality of life is excellent in Idaho.
Coming from Scottsdale, AZ it is humorous that these kids think they know money. Socially these kids are taught very little. Disrespectful, bratty individuals are high in numbers at this school. The good news is that for the kids who are better rounded there is hiking, skiing, golfing, room to rollerblade, and explore. I enjoy watching my youths growth, and our family refuses to treat others negatively due to our financial blessings. If other parents thought this way, the school would be much more inviting.
The students I spent my time with all had been, for the most part, stuck-up kids who really have no consideration for others. The teachers I had and genuinely liked is at a low number of five, and I didn't even get four of them until I was a senior. The administration were the most annoying bunch I've ever seen. They're way too obsessed with enforcing these pointless rules than they are making sure students are legitimately happy and learning. If you have to, sure, send your kids here. But don't be surprised if they end up hating it.
High school is what you make of it and for my kids they have had great opportunities to attend challenging classes with excellent/caring teachers. This school also offers many honors, AP and concurrent classes. The school district overall offers many options for parents and their children....not only for college bound students but vocational opportunities as well. There's no excuse for a child in this district to not get a great education because there is something out there for any child depending what direction they want go in in the future as long as they are willing to learn and work hard.
Although not a perfect school, I am quite impressed with most aspects of Eagle High School. In California my son would have had to pass through metal detectors daily, been careful what color he wore because of gang violence, the teachers and administrators openly attacked social viewpoints different from their own, they did not want parent input and directly told us that they knew better than we did what was best for our children. Academically they spent more time on social education than core subjects. I have found the administration at EHS willing to listen and very professional. There are many supportive, friendly students and parents for the arts/music as well as sports. Kids have ample opportunity to be involved and to succeed at EHS. There are a few teachers which could improve on preparing the kids for college in their respective subjects, but I have found that most of them are interested in the success of the kids.
