Parents, pay attention to the recent changes in this school. Many honors/ap classes have been dropped this year without warning. Full year classes were stopped after first semester. Many teachers lack lesson plans and rebel against parent involvment. Administration, and counselling are poor. A few good teachers remain.

School has great music, athletics and leadership programs. My step son is the fourth generation to attend EHS and is proud of it. The Principal has squashed students' freedom of expression and reduced funding for very good programs that raise student self esteem and respect towards others. Some of the teachers are willing to go the extra mile to help the students succeed. Many will go out of their way to help students and parents in the students best interests.

Outstanding teachers, coaches, and alumni. Very interesting small college type set up, across several city blocks. Outstanding Tech and PE teachers. Teachers seem to love the school and many have been there for 20+ years. AP courses are great and it's enables students to get the AA when they graduate. Overall outstanding school, with great sports, band, and community involvement.

We have been overall very happy with the education our student has received at EHS. The teachers and staff have been very helpful, they have excellent up and coming sports programs, and excellent programs for children who participate in other activities such as choir, band, etc. They need to bring the drama dept. back, hopefully that will happen soon.

This school was a huge disappointment. They could not arrange my sons schedule to ensure that he was getting all of the necessary classes. As a sophomore he did not take a math class at all because they were just to full. The staff is not concerned enough about making sure kids are getting what they need and that they are on track. My son left this school and went to an alternative school, which unfortunately was a step up.

My fourth child is now attending Everett High. All excelled in high school because of the positive learning environment and the benefits gained from the diverse student body. The current music program (especially jazz) is outstanding and opportunities exist for athletics for all who want to be involved no matter the skill level. The campus is more like a small college campus including a wonderfully restored turn-of-the-century main building, a large civic auditorium, a small performing arts theater, and a state-of-the-art science facility. The encouragement my children experienced at Everett High enabled them to be very succesful in college and in their careers.

Academic programs are quite strong. School offers AP History and high level math and sciences. Students prepare for college writing by researching and writing a 5-7 page argumentative paper. Former students have returned to the school thanking teachers for preparing them for college level writing. Music program is phenomenal with a dedicated band and vocal music teacher. Students are very enthusiastic about both programs. School sports teams have quality coaches and have fared well against other schools. Especially strong are the girls volleyball and softball teams and the boys wrestling team. Parent involvement is somewhat high among the 'more affluent' parents but slowly gaining ground among the immigrant parents. Great ESL program that continues to improve. Principal Pat Sullivan is highly respected by his staff; he provides true leadership.

Top level administration. Grossly misrepresented in the media as of late. Certainly worthy of commendations for job well done over the years working with a diverse population that presents a umber of challenges and great opportunities. I would recommend to any parent that they allow their child to attend the school. It's a fine public instidution that keeps finding new ways of inspiring the students and community. School spirit is excellent, es[ecially for a school that has low socio-economic population.

I graduated in 2000, there were some great teachers, like Garrow, Hastings,Kirkpatrick, Aeirs, Evans, especially him. The musical eduation was amazing. The math department was a discrace. One of my math teachers told me a parabola was two line backers head butting at the 50 yard line. However, Mrs. Johnson & Mrs. Mcloud were wothwhile, and Mr. Ryder is okay. The rest of the math department, is really terrible. Some teachers were just plan bad teachers. The Current Princeple is probably the rudest, least helpful, and most distrespectful staff member I ever met. He talks down not only to students, but to their parents. He likes to hold the power he has over students and parent's heads. He especailly loves to force other people to listen to his long, afual speaches. Scolially Everett is okay. It's less cliky then others.

Have to say that when I went there (1989-1991) the teachers were wonderful, I have no complaints what so ever. I moved in the middle of my Junior year and believe me I wish I never had, there is no comparing this school to anywhere else I can not wait for my niece to enter those hollowed doors. Thanks to all my teachers for making life so much batter for me and making learning fun. Especially Mrs. Garrow (world History) she is the best.

Very happy with the overall high school experience. Great sports teams and coaches for those very few who make it, as well as unlimited participation in track, crosscountry and swimming. Unexcelled music program, both band and choir. Drama program was excellent, but is poor currently. Great leadership program. Excellent instructors in the challenge classes and science classes. Higher Math is a weakness - true of the Everett disctrict all over. Everett High has done very well at preparing students for the new high school graduation requirements.
