At the middle and high school levels, this school focuses only on its small town sports, and does not prepare students academically. Favors are given to athletes, and some teachers join students to watch sports film during class instead of instructing. The atmosphere is very closed and biased toward locals. The 8 rating is misleading because it includes lower grades. Look at the high school breakdown, and you will see a better reflection.
This school provides a small, caring environment for students and holds them to consistently high standards. The K-12 nature of the school allows positive interaction among different ages, from peer tutoring to elementary students being able to participate in the high school homecoming parade. Students are polite and generally have the values of hard work, discipline and respect I want my children to develop as they grow.
I have two children who attend EHS. They absolutely love it. They do not feel like they are just a number or name in a grade book. Their class sizes are smaller than they were when they attended Riverdale. I would not hesitate to have my children in any of the Rutherford county schools, but the smaller 'hometown' environment is exactly what my kids needed in a high school. The school offers most of the classes that the larger schools offer. Both of my children are going on to college, and Eagleville is preparing them well for their future.
Eagleville is a very unique school serving children from P-K through 12 grade. You can literally know each other your entire life when you go to this school. Many times a teacher may have even taught your parents. Eagleville School also prepares a student for the future. If a student wants to further his/her education they only need to apply themselves and they can go into any field they want. Eagleville has educated physicans, lawyers, chemist, educators, nurses,pilots, homemakers, technical support people, farmers, factory workers, jewelers, and the list goes on. They administrators, teachers, and staff are friendly and helpful. They truly care for the students.
