Help... I'm a 9th grader. I'm stuck in this school because we're poor and eldo is the nearest/cheapest. It sucks. I got homeschooled for 8th grade. I made myself several gmail accounts. Then i come back and they give me this cheap controlled school email which is run by this google engine.

This is a complete and total joke, i would never in a million years send my child to this school. The state should step in and shut this school down. DO NOT send your children to this school!

My children and I have all graduated from El Dorado. This school used to be a competitive school in all aspects with surrounding schools. Now you have administration that only wants to focus on sports and they make others, who don't want to dedicate their life to sports, feel un-wanted. If parents question or offer opinions, they are labeled as trouble makers and their children pay the price. Administration gets an F. But they have great sports complexs but the kids don't want to play anymore.

I just graduated from EHS last year and while I was there I thought that the education that I was receiving was not up to par now that I am is college I can easily see otherwise. As for the discipline at the school from what I have seen in other school it is slightly above par. The founding to sports I think is distributed close to the right amounts only because the sports that get the money make the money. The coaches also know how to get money from the town. I played three sports and was in choir and know from firsthand experience how the money is put to the different sports and fine arts. As for the politics claim all schools are ran by them.

Disgusting! Politics rule this school! The state needs to step in here and put this school back in order.

This school would be a lot better off if they put more funding into the Fine Arts programs and into more athletics rather than JUST FOOTBALL. The band and choir are both overcrowded and don't have decent room to practice. The track teams uniforms are shabby. And a lot of the classes are overcrowded as well. The school is inadequately funded. What little budget they do have should be spent in a different matter. The security is also not as good as it should be. I personally witnessed a girl being punched several times outside on the sidewalk. Also, I think that the teachers and principal show favoritism to certain students. Mainly the richer students and those who are star athletes. Certain authority figures wrongfully pick on less fortunate students.

I have had 3 children graduate from EHS. Two have become engineers and the other a successful contractor. I feel they received an excellent education. The teachers and administrators go out of their way to make every child's education the best it can be. They offer before and after school free tutoring. The sports, band, choir, Ag, Industrial Arts and DECA programs are only a few of the excellent opportunities for students to excel at EHS. Many of these programs have won awards for excellence at the state level. This school offers a wonderful well rounded education with small school quality.

The only thing I have to say about this school is that I will never send my own children to this school. It's not a good enviroment. There is not enough security or discipline. Where are the teacher's when a student is getting harrassed? They are there, but most of them don't see it, or they just don't care. A few teachers will even talk about students behavior to other staff members, and even other students of that child. I can only say I would rather spend thousands of dollars on home-schooling, or private school on my child's education than to send them to this school.
