As a former student I can say I had a great experience. Sure there are Cliques but there are cliques in EVERY school. Nothing new there. The large majority of the teachers seem to genuinely care about the students. For a mid sized school they offer a lot of programs and clubs and extracurricular activities.Something for everyone really. Its a nice school and a nice environment.

I am a parent of an 11th grader, and agree with another reviewer that the school is full of cliques. However, I don't feel that that is the fault of the school itself. I do however, have a problem with the fact that last year the school decided to stop making grades a factor in whether one is allowed on a sport team or not. I feel the primary responsibility of the school is to educate and not play football. So letting kids still play that are failing classes is unacceptable.

I am currently a senior and in my 4 years here, I gave only noticed 2 bad things about this school. There way too many cliques at this school to the point that there are students who literally have no friends. And there are select students(usually athletes) who get away with almost anything. Also they seem to only focus on sports and test scores here. Students who excel in other ways get little to no praise for it.

i am currently a student at ehs and i absolutely love. The freedom and decpline is just the exact amount that we teens need these days, enough to where most of the student body knows what is right and wrong. As mr. elliott, my favorite teacher and inspiration, says 'do the right thing, 'cause its the right thing to do', and as a band member every 110 people try to do just so. At the first of the year you just think that the teachers you were given are just another bunch of parents to boss you around and try their hardest to start walkin on that last nerve that you have, but after a while you start warming up to each of them and like them for each unique trait that they aquire. I would type more but this is the most it will let me. i love ehs!!!!

As a graduate of Elizabethton High School, I can say without a doubt what a wonderful school we have. The teachers are wonderful just as they always have been, even 12 years later. My favorite teacher, in 1989 when I graduated, was Mr. Ed Alexander, and I am happy to say, he is now principal of this high school and is doing a wonderful job! Thank God for teachers like Mr. Alexander, who have come to this tiny town, to make a big difference. God knows they made a difference in my life. Go Cyclones!
