The teachers at EHS are great. However they are extremely heaitant when it comes to giving dicipline. Therefore, I don't learn ANYTHING because the students dont know how to be quiet when the teacher is trying to teach. Also, EHS has to be the most unsanitary school I have ever been to. If you're considering enrolling your child in this school.. DON'T

Euclid High School that I am proud to say that I attend. All the reviews seem to be from students that don't put forth much work ethic or are negative attitudes in the community. If euclid is such a problem then those students should just leave. Euclid provides many opportunities you just have to step out there and give it a try.

Let me start by saying I don't know why my reviews are not even being added, seeing as this is the third I've tried to post, secondly I have just had maybe the worst day there. I was bullied in class and the teacher did not do a thing about it, so I left, simple as that. I could rant about this school all day, believe me, but I'm not. The school does not even deserve my time and effort to rant. With that being said I would just like to totally agree with the person who posted below me 100%, except for one little thing... the Euclid High School is far from being the best school...

Euclid can be the worst and the best. At Euclid it doesn't matter weather your child is in honors or not, your child WILL get bullied even by complete strangers. Euclid at the same time has some very great teachers, but because of the student behavior there abiltes are downsized. No one will stop the consent harassment or anything, its daily. Its very stressful in high school in general but Euclid adds x2 the drama, seeing that the parents refuse to do anything about the student behavior. If you want to see your child stressed and bullied go to this school, if not I would go somewhere else. I would know because I am a student, soon I will be going to online home schooling.

I am a student at EHS i think this school is having so many problems such as inappropriate cursing, excessive behavior, and disrespect. I think the kids moving from Eastern Cleveland, East Cleveland, Richmond Heights are the problem, thats why parents are taking their kids out of EHS into other schools. The teachers are great, they are not the problem its the students, sometimes i can't do my work because i a student wants to have the last word with a teacher its very sad. I just wish that if some of these kids would grow up in high school and not argue based on what they did they would have a better year without trouble.

My son is a junior and transferred to Euclid from another suburban high school. Euclid has a lot to offer to any student who wants to put in the work. Of course any school has problems. But an education can be received if sought. Euclid H.S. was very impressive with a dvd that was given at registration. And my son has found it easier to fit in and continues to make friends.

Euclid schools have everything to offer our children to prepare them in entering the real world.

I graduated from Euclid High School just 2 years ago. The school system seemed to lose their sense of pride in the school. There no longer was any pride at Euclid High School. Some of the students don't seem to care about the welfare of the schools state nor care for other students. Bullying, fights, and other unwanted types of harrasment were the daily norm. The discipline of some students is just out of this world, and the school doesn't seem to care and change that. However, success comes to those that desire it. But I am embarassed to say that I was a Graduate of Euclid High School.

I feel the Euclid High School is a great school.They have some of the best teacher at the Euclid high. The teacher at the high school welll work with your child to make sure they get the best education.I went to the Euclid High School and it may had its pro's and it's con's but what school doesnt. I strongly recommend the Euclid High School.

I've had three children at the high school within the past ten years. I have seen many changes throughout these years. The curriculum is there for those students that want to learn. However, the student population is changing so that it seems many students are more interested in socializing instead of learning. The teachers are good teachers but it is hard to teach when there are behavior issues and so many students lack the motivation to learn. Parental involvement has decreased throughout the years. Wake up parents and students.

I thought I would wait it out and see if the situation would improve, sadly, it has just gotten worse over time. I can no longer leave my son in this disgrace of a school. Where education should be his main focus, his safety seems to be, as he has been threatened many times in school and out. Not only am I pulling him out of the school, but Euclid as well.

Academics are okay, but getting worse. There are plenty of oportunities for art, music, and athelethics. There isn't much parental involvement.

I am the parent of a Euclid Junior and I both agree with some of the previous comments and strongly disagree. Last year was the first year with the small schools program and I think it has started the school on a change for the better. The teachers spent a lot of time with my child and it was good to know they would see the same students next year. My son had problems in math and the math teacher worked with him to help overcome his lack of confidence. He has the same teacher again this year and that really helps. He was failing a class and the teacher gave him extra help once a week after school and he brought up his grade. I see this sort of thing as a change for the better.

I am a parent of two children, I beleive the entire eulcid school sysytem has issues. I'm in agreement with the other reviewer, the teachers are the problems. I would like to see a report card issued on some of the teachers. It seems as though the teachers today just want a pay check! Whatever happen to no children left behind. Children are being left behind.

The Euclid High School has gone down terribly over the passed few years. The teachers, with a few exceptions, are not very good quality.

I am not a parent but an Alumni of this School. I just would like to say that the teachers were horrible.

I had the pleasure of working with Ms. Elliott, an assistant principal at the high school. The relationship she has with the students is excellent they respect her and feel they have someone they can go to when they are having problems with their peers or classes. I am glad my daughter has someone that has taken the time to help her become a lady with high standards and morals and that is the result of having a staff that cares.

About the tests


In 2010-2011, the Ohio Department of Education used the Value-Added Measure to show how much growth students made on the Ohio Achievement Test since the last school year. The state expects that student test scores will show an average year's worth of growth compared to test scores from the previous year. Ohio's Value-Added Measure is not the same as Adequate Yearly Progress (AYP), a federal measure which uses different criteria.

About the tests


Ohio uses the Performance Index to provide an overall indication of how well students perform on its standardized tests each year. The Performance Index scores are based upon how well each student does on all tested subjects in grades 3 through 8 and 10. Schools and districts earn anywhere from 1.2 points for each student scoring at the advanced level to zero points for each untested student. The Performance Index ranges between 0 and 120, with 100 as the statewide goal for all students.

What is the GreatSchools Rating?

The GreatSchools rating is a simple tool for parents to compare schools based on test scores, student academic growth, and college readiness. It compares schools across the state, where the highest rated schools in the state are designated as “Above Average” and the lowest “Below Average.” It is designed to be a starting point to help parents make baseline comparisons. We always advise parents to visit the school and consider other information on school performance and programs, as well as consider their child's and family's needs as part of the school selection process.
