I graduated in 2010. Regardless of what others are saying, I was not an athlete or a drug user, nor were any of my friends. If you did the minimal amount of work, you should be prepared for college. I was accepted into the honors program at my university and will be graduating summa cum laude as an outstanding psychology student. If your student is not thriving it is not the school's fault. I will admit that the coach/teachers favored their students, BUT it never stifled me.

This is a great school! The administration and teachers honestly do everything in their power to give the children every advantage to prepare them for life after high school.

This is a drug infested school. The administration does nothing to remedy the problem... kids openly talk about drug use to other students at school, and bully the kids who do not think drug use is cool. Again, school admin does nothing about these problems....

I graduated from ENHS in 2008. I feel that this school is creditable for one thing, drive. The drive that ENHS Principal's and School board has is not for the student body, it to see their wallets grow. No matter what the consequences, no matter how much the student body has to suffer. The only good thing ENHS has going for them is a slect few teachers like Jeff Patterson, Denzil Davis, MR. Brockman and, Coach Vanslak. All these teachers have an unpeckable amount of knoledge, values, and the most important ablity as a teacher, the ablity to relate to the stuident body every day. ENHS staff need to step up and learn from thoes few good teachers. Take pride in good values, and not just throw them to the way side like they have been doing for so long now.

This school is simply horriable. I am a former student, class of 2005. This current adminstration did not prepare me well for school and i was one who paid attention. Their regime strifles creativity and academia. They are more concerned about sports and if your a jock its a wonderful place to be. If your just trying to survive this school will eat you alive. The kids have a good brotherhood/sisterhood but its the adminstration. They have a few top notch teachers though.
