I go to this school. I have classes all over the building, so I know what are the classes around me are like. The teachers are really great. They teach well, and I think about 99.9% of the students will succeed, there will always be those several few who just hate everything in life. The only thing I don't like is the amount of homework given, it's too much. This however is good for the students, it's practice for quizzes and tests. The exam passing rate is quite high, higher than the surrounding schools. I really like this school, it's great academically, musically, and with sports. It's an awesome school with awesome people, and if you are considering someone to go here, it's a good choice.
The bullying program in place is not very effective. Perhaps they should consider revising it.
Former student here..........the school is not to bad....great students.....great teachers......the environment is good. However, it's not for everyone. They give alot of homework and focus too much on academics. Definitely great for those who wish to pursue academic careers such as medicine and law, but it is definetely not for those who want to pursue non-academic careers such as arts, music, or sports.
Excellence, opportunity and community! Our teachers have provided our children with top notch academics paired with winning sports teams!
The principal and his cronies don't care about the students unless they are in trouble. They torture the tenured teachers in an attempt to force them to retire. The teachers are wonderful and helpful and truly care about the students, but this is made difficult by the administration. Very few elective courses for students to choose from as well as extra-curricular activities. Ever since the district changed things in about 2005, things have gone down-hill. They claim to have improved security, but it's still just as bad as it ever was, if not worse. We (my year) may have made it a "blue ribbon school" but there is so little to offer that your students would be better off somewhere else nearby (like Hale). '08
This school is so involved in the students and the comunity. The teachers care and will help kids whenever they need it.
I think our school has some of the best teachers out there. The displines at Eisenhower is probably way better than other schools. I would hear about a fight or something bad happening in a MPS school and i would go like 'WHOA, that rarely happens at Eisenhower.' A lot of parents and other students would critize and say that the displines aren't that good but they should take a look at some of the MPS schools. They has been a lot of classes that was cut. Eisenhower was awarded with the National Blue Ribbon for being one of the top 2 schools in WI but yet we still lack a lot of other things too. I think overall, the education there is great!!!
I think it is great our school got the blue ribbon this year. That shows how dedicated our Eisenhower staff and students are. I think any student who goes to Eisenhower is lucky. The teachers are happy to stay after school to give help or if not recommend you to a tutor
The quality of the academic programs is good. Lacks tech courses and assumes everyone is college bound,if they are not college bound they have limited options for classes. Cut-backs have nearly eliminated the shop/tech courses. It would be a much better school if it made more effort to teach the average to below average students instead of placing most of the focus on the high achievers. Athletics are good; discipline is good; students are safe in school, lots of school spirit on behalf of the teachers and students.
As a recent graduate, I know there are plenty of excellent teachers who really care about helping their students. It's a friendly, positive environment for the most part. There's an excellent sports programs and a wide AP curriculum that is well run. The school has always provided challenging academic material and produces intelligent individuals. An excellent high school experience!
While my child is the upper 5% of her graduating class at the present time, I find the top level administration lacks experience, empathy and compassion. Guidance counselors interfere with and attempt to be suurogate family to only some students. District has eliminated numerous electives, and assumes all students are destined for college. Need to restore home ec and trade learning, and increase business class opportunities.
High expectations: academic programs across the board, wide variety of music, art, sports and clubs: high student involvement. No home ec/family and consumer ed (cuts took these), dwindling tech ed. Excellent staff involvement: all academic areas offer additional support through writing and math labs (during the day) and extended learning (tutoring) after school, all free of charge to interested students. Parent Connect software enables parents to check student grades on a DAILY basis, although many parents do not take advantage of this. Summer school offered, elementary through high school, voluntary. Parent involvement in high school through MANY booster clubs: almost all athletic teams have booster clubs, as well as Post Prom, Project Graduation and music boosters (all parental efforts with coach/teacher liaison, volunteer efforts by teachers/coaches). High ACT scores, high placement of special education students in jobs, post secondary (tech and four year universities). Spec ed staff transition students to schools.
Just another conservative school ready to kill the liberal arts curriculum. The math teachers are generally quite good. Foreign language department is good, too. Extracurricular activities are somewhat well funded.
If your child has ANY sort of disability; DON'T send them there! There have been many cuts of critical courses and staff. Staff is made up of 'nearly' retired teachers.
Not one of the best schools to futher ones education. Many great classes have been cut, and there seems to be no chance of them returning. Not many teachers really care about the students.
