    "Hard to stand out or be acknowledged, easily gives up on students instead of helping them (see independent study or zoe barnum), nepotism is a problem. Great theater program if that's your thing, scholarship opportunities if you look for them. If you're a hardcore student you can make it out of here with high honors, but if you aren't great at school it's easy to get lost in the crowd and left behind. Counselors aren't helpful and difficult to talk to, and each counselor serves hundreds of students. Loud environment, crumbling infrastructure. The gym is awful and you'll be forced to take two years of PE with unsympathetic teachers if you have a condition such as asthma. My grades didn't reflect my level of effort and knowledge and different teachers have different grading methods. If you have poor mental health of any, avoid this school. Class sizes too large to suit individual students needs. Same problems as any regular large public high school in this country."

    "I have had an overall decent experience at EHS. I have never felt threaten or scared to come to school. For the most part, I have had nice teachers and met nice staff. I think the counselling office could use more help because some times it takes a long time to get stuff done."

    "My experience in Eureka High School, Eureka High School is a good school. There are great teachers and they support you all the way and help you when the students is in needed help. The clubs are great and fun to be in and experience some of the clubs. each clubs has their own things to do, even though the clubs work hard they still do not give up and try until what they want. I feel that it would be nice to have more elective in the school, so that the students would have more choice to pick the class that they want or is in their major."

    "There are teachers who love their job and really want to be teaching, and there are others who really do not care at all, and students lose education."
