Im actually a student there or I was. This school is really awesome, sure.. there are some uncool students there and some rude teachers there, but there are also some VERY COOL people there, and extremly nice and helpful teachers there. This was my 1st year there and I loved it I made so many friends there, and I wish I had went to class more often but I was dumb. I dont care what other people think about it thats theyre opinion... but Enloe is very fun and Very helpful and the princible kicks butt!!!!
For all of you who have never been two Enloe, don't you dare say a bad word about it! Enloe is the best high school in the state and 42nd in the country! As a student there currently, i believe i can best say that the school is completely safe! The principal is a great guy who cares a lot about the kids and i know i feel 100% one-on-one communication with the teachers! Parents are always more than welcome to be involved in what is going on around the school so all of you who have a problem with the school, DO something about it rather than complaining on a website! The extracurricular's at Enloe are the best in the state... with a drama department that SELLS OUT all of its productions and a swimm team that has yet to be defeated! Any NORMAL person who loves education loves Enloe!
Enloe is one of the most disgusting establishments I have ever seen in my life. The staff is rude, the students zombies, and I would never send any child there if I cared about their education or safety. People have talked about Enloe like it is a good school, but that's just reputation, anyone who pays a visit can see that it is untrue and overexaggerated. They pride themselves on grades, but lack the attention to people skills most schools have.
Enloe is the prime example of what's wrong with the American educational model. If you want your child to grow up to be a corporate drone or cog, sending them to Enloe will certainly teach them how to be the best drone or cog they can be. If you want them to challenge ideas, make their own path, reevaluate and rethink, send them somewhere else. Unschool them. Find another way. Enloe 'prepares' students for college in the sense that they will come out of high school already jaded and depressed, and probably relatively good at filling in bubbles on scantron sheets and otherwise coloring inside the lines. Enloe has a few gems, a select minority of great teachers, but they are constantly stifled by an overzealous, militant administration that cares not one bit about the welfare of the students. Enloe is a school ruled by numbers. Whole people need not apply.
I think that Enloe is a great school. it has every type of honors or AP class you can think of but it is missing something vital. a ROTC program. sure it is a magnet school but in the area the school is placed there are very few magnet students which make up most of its population. as of this year 2005 it no longer has a construction class and rumor has it that the automotive classes will cease to exist in the near future. In my opinion the school is constantly serving those who are academically gifted and there nothing wrong with that but for the non AG students it gets harder and harder to find the determination to excel academically, especially when you take away those technical courses. as a non AG student myself I think that if Enloe had a ROTC program than the majority of its sudents will have the desire to do good in school as well,from a junior,class of 2006.
Okay, I have a confession...I am not a parent of a student. I am a past student (class of 2003). I can't think of anything bad to say about Enloe. The academic pressure can stress students out sometimes, but after a semester in college, I realize that Enloe truly does prepare students for post-high school endeavors. In addition to taking several AP courses, I was active in student council, drama and chorus throughout my four great years there and I cannot imagine how my high school experience would have been at any other school. My teachers were all excellent (as people and in their fields)and the administration is clearly dedicated to providing a safe and fun experience for every student there. Socially, it is VERY hard to not find a 'niche'. There is really no such thing as a misfit at Enloe. Everyone finds others like themselves and feels welcome at this wonderful institution. I only wish that every student had the opportunity to experience a school family like the one found at Enloe.
Enloe, being a magnet school and the only Wake County high school on a 'traditional' -- as opposed to a 'block' -- schedule, collects highly motivated and high potential students from all over the county and the strong quality of the student body is a great benefit. Excellent drama dept.
