This high school hosts the friendliest community of high schoolers. The teachers are amazing and the majority of students are high achieving and creates an environments where people strive to be the best that they can be. The numerous clubs at this school show the amount of student freedom and the ways that they can express themselves This school has a superior athletic program in all sports and a music program in band, choir, and orchestra, and houses some of the best technology (grants to lend Macbook Airs to all students) to aid students in learning. The amount of independence students get are amazing and this school gives the best opportunities in the state.

This is absolutely the best high school I have known of. I know many people from many different high school, it seems to me that EPHS is just simply stand out compare to the rest.

I loved every minute of my time at EPHS. When entering college I felt more prepared than anyone at met at the University of St. Thomas. The school does a great job of reaching students considering the overwhelming size of the school. Everyone can be involved in academics and sports/clubs.

Eden Prairie HS has a strong reputation for academic excellence as well as having top ranked sport teams. There are plenty of clubs and activities for the students to be a part of which promotes a high level of student involvement. The teachers and staff are great!

Regardless of the enormous size of EPHS, there is literally an opportunity for everyone to excel at EP. You do not need to be extremely smart or an exceptional athlete to gain recognition. Students interested in tv, video, and news production can be part of Eaglevision News(EVN), our tv news show. Staff of EVN gets to work with incredible equipment both on screen and off. Writers can work on the Eyrie newspaper staff (ranked in the top ten of the country). Students with leadership qualities can be on student council. DECA/ BPA and the business department allows the opportunity for students to become young professionals. Students can gain internships, join the EP Chamber of Commerce as a student member, or compete in DECA competitions in everything from Ad Campaign presentations to professional interviews. It just takes some interest and motivation by the student! Also, congrats EP Boys Hockey- 09 State Champs!

I am a student at EPHS, and I must say that their are so many more oppertunities at this school than there are anywhere else in the entire state. You can find almost anything you want here. The classes you can take always get harder and you never really run out. There are tons of clubs and sports that you can join, and we usually excell at all sports, there is a ton of school spirit. We have our share of great teachers in most all departments except science, which in my opinon is lacking good instruction. We send tons of kids to Ivy League and other great colleges every year, and each class has many outstanding students that you can work and compete with. Also, you can always find a new thing to try that you just might like. The oppurtunities are endless at EPHS.

Eden Prairie Could be the greatest school ever. I loved the athletics and the school. I felt it not only prepared me for college academics but schooling. Yes the school is big but that just means that only the best of the best play the sports and that if your at the top of the cless ou can really suceed. The teachers pay excelent attention to everyone in the class and provide great leadership. If you try you will not only do good in school but get accepted to a great college

If your smart they will give you all the attention you need. If youre not they won't, i hate to sound cliche but htey dont care about minorities and class sizes are usally aroun 31 or32. If your low income they try to just contain you and sheild the kids from outside contact and end up hurting themin the long run. Failed the NCLB, drugs, gangs, and a bunch of little overprivledged rich kids... bad combo.

So many oppurtunities for students of all kinds and abilities. Number one high school athletic program in the state. The size of the school and the number of students is very well controlled and managed overall and I recommend it to everyone looking for the best for their children.

Though the options at this school are limitless and it serves a wide variety of students, it is very large. Many students feel lost and overwhelmed by the size. Eden Prairie High School is the largest high school in the state of Minnesota. Unless your child is very social, independent, and ready to work on his own without teacher support, do not enroll here.

Eden Prairie High School has a very high level of academic programs, and a wide variety of sports and activities available. Alot of these activities and programs though are mostly to help the students that are already better than the other students. Because of the great standard and great quality of the sports teams, it is hard for mediocre sports players, or not so smart children to advance and attain recognition from the teachers and/or coaches.

Our daughter, graduating in 2003, received a less-than-adequate college prep education. While those at the top of the class and those at the bottom receive solid benefits at Eden Prairie, those in the middle are often squeezed out of services. In a school of this size, any teacher/student relationship building is difficult and hampered by sheer numbers. While AP classes are often smaller in size, class sizes of 40 students is not uncommon. While this is similar to many colleges, failing to understand that this is NOT college is where Eden Prairie underserves it's community. Only the top atheletes compete, making the school very competitive in their conferences and there is a significant intramural league in several sports. The politics of Eden Prairie Athletics is completely draining with TOO much parent control. Parent involvement mostly consists of the parents of gifted and talented population. Strong representation in parent associations and on school board.

I graduated in 2003 and in my 4 years at EPHS, I experienced an excellent education. The social studies department was amazing, as well as the science and math. I was lucky to experience such a diverse aray of art classes and extracuricular activites. My senior year i was able to take many AP classes, because of the block scheduling and the teachers were wonderful in helping me get into my colleges of choice. I was accepted to many private and public universities and thank EPHS for that.

Our daughter graduated in 2003. Curriculum opportunities were rigorous. Block scheduling was good with the exception of limiting the amount of offerngs students involved in music could take. High quality music programs, great athletics for girls and boys, as well as a well developed intramural program. Large high school environment made for an easy transition to college. Supportive community with high expectations. Many opportunities for parent involvement.

We are blessed to get the opportunity to send our daughters and soon our son to the Eden Prairie High School. Thank you so much for all your hard work, support, help, caring and encouragement. We couldn't do it without your excellent teachers, advisors, counselors, principal and staff. Our oldest daughter(Natalie) is going to be in her 3rd year this Fall 2004 in Nursing program at the Arizona State University in Arizona. We just attended a New Student Orientation for our daughter's Sheena at the Pepperdine University in California. Again, thank you very much for making a difference in our daughter's life. Sincerely, Elita Bald
