This was a terrible school. The administration was unorganized and the teachers all seemed like they were working in hell (the name Eldorado is so perfect for it). Overall the school just seemed very sad and gloomy like everyone would rather be anywhere else.

Good, solid, old-fashioned blue-collar high school. Many good teachers, in the changing environment of Las Vegas, remain at Elodorado High School and are dedicated to its students.

Needs more school spirit and more community service projects for students to become more unified.

My opinion of Eldorado is like any other school. It all really depends who you hang out with and what type of character your personality holds. Eldorado does contain motivating programs; such as Avid and Eldorado also provides us with a bulletin where scholarships are offered, or anything that is according to Universities and Colleges. There are some teachers that have been working here for a while, yet the way they teach makes it seem like they don't even care about our grades. And it seems like some teachers care more about what we wear instead of what we learn. The dress code and tardy policies have been interrupting and interfering with our knowledge. And for Sports, some coaches are dedicated to what they do, yet other coaches are just good men with no coach skills and just like to believe they know what they are doing. I don t recommend eldorado to any one, Only to those that will go to school and commit to honor/ap classes. Because those are basically the classes that teachers actually sit down with you and explain the details that are given in the book and will be in a test.

I have been teaching now for 10 years. I have taught at one other high school besides Eldorado which is located in another state. The previous school was stable and enjoyable. Eldorado without question or hesitation falls far below the school which I previously taught at. I have observed major problems at Eldorado with the Administration and Student-body. The Administration are not prepared to administer. They are poor communicators and offer little positive assistance to faculty. Profanity and rudeness are the norm. I would not send my child to this school. I will not be teaching here next year as I value my sanity and health!

I attended Eldorado for all four high school years and graduated in 2006 to move on to CCSN. There are very few things that can be said about Eldorado. The relatively new principal has helped a lot over the past couple years and has a good vision for the future. With the exception of a handful of teachers, a majority of the staff are lathargic about their teaching and are poor educators, merely covering the subject without actually forging any knowledge into the students. One of the worst issues is the safety on campus. Many students are violent, rude, and have no regard or understanding for community morals or ethics. Assualt, vandalism, theft, and harassment run rampant with little opposition from the disciplinary staff. The deans and police themselves seem careless, clamping down on clothing instead of focusing on the very nature of the students themselves. Overall, an extremely poor quality school.

I think Eldorado High School overall is a pretty good school but the dress code is my main concern.They should let students wear what they want to express themselves.I'm not saying you should let them wear ANYTHING they want but some of the rules are ridiculous.For example flip flops whats wrong with them? Why can't my daughter or her peers wear them?Whats wrong with the girls showing their shoulders?They are teenagers and teenagers don't have to dress like old people!All I'm saying is you should make the dress code a little easier for them to follow.They should be able to express their individuality by their clothes and your not letting them.Thanks for taking the time to read this and hopefully you will take this in consideration.

I am a practicum student in clark county and have enjoyed observing a variety of teachers and students. It is a well established school with a great curriculum and employees who care about their jobs. The principal seems like he is a wonderful person who is dedicated to his school. This is the type of school that I hope to work at when I get my degree. I have enjoyed it so much that I don't want to go home at the end of the day. When I do go home I work on power points, lectures, and labs that will intrigue and interest all of the students. It is a friendly, caring place that wants its students to truly get as much as they can out of education, emphasizing college and its importance. Thank you Sundevils for making my obsaervation experience wonderful one! Love and Logic goes a long way.

I think Eldorado High is a great school I have had 3 kids there two have graduated and moved on in the world.My third is 9th grader now and her cousin is 10th grader. They have some great teachers who are really concerned about teaching. I am looking forward till when my last child is able to attend Eldorado.

I feel that this institution has some outstanding qualities, however it still needs to open its doors as well as the minds of its teachers, to new ideas and stop controlling the students. They all have minds, we won't be shaped like society wants us to be, you all were teenagers too...and just like the poster placed in every single classroom says...'The student is the most important part of Eldorado, with out the student there is no need for the institution...'. Like most schools publically funded or not they don't realize there is no one set standard for any human mind so how can they begin to think that its okay to teach like there is only one? please consider this and read 'Dumbing Us Down' its a great book.
