    "For the past 4 years attending Elgin High School, I have had some teachers that I can honestly say, they made such a huge impact on my life. Others it is the exact opposite. But, I always make the best out of each and every classroom. I enjoy when teachers make us participate in class, but when all students are apart of the lesson. I have no problem going up to a teacher and ask for help. I have learned that it is always ok to ask questions, and teachers are there to always help us. Teachers at Elgin are very nice, but there are ones who stand out from the rest. The ones that stand out, make me actually excited to go to class everyday. When teachers have real life stories that connect with what we are learning, it is something that gives me a lot of hope. Sometimes school seems repetitive. But when they make connections it opens my eyes, that there is a reason we are learning this stuff. At Elgin we have teachers that will ask you, "Hey how's your mom?". I love when teachers care enough to make sure all is well with students' families. That's the kind of bond you don't get everywhere. The grading has been a disastrous mess. We have been through so many changes of how we will be graded. It has been hard on students and staff. But we all learned to go with the flow. As of right now it has been very stable."

    "Overall, my experience at Elgin High School was, eye opening, exciting, and defiantly different. There are so many activities to get involved in. One of my favorite experiences was when B96 was at the homecoming dance. But my favorite memory and experience, was going to the HOSA Conference in Decatur. The diversity in this school makes Elgin so unique. I would go to this school again, because it has taught me so many life lessons I couldn't of possibly learned anywhere else."

    "As a sophomore i felt like the school sucked, i didn't want to be here but as i matured i definitely started enjoying it more. I became even more outgoing and started joining things and hanging out with people who loved being active and the outdoors. I really love our school sport activities like the football games and Volleyball games. I actually played Varsity Football for the first time my senior year, it was such a great experience. As a senior i think i have to say i enjoyed these last 4 years."

    "EHS is very diverse. This is what allows the school to be so unique. In a classroom of 30 students many ideas and different perspectives are shown and explored. These same perspectives are also challenged but other peers as well, I disagree in the way it is shown. I would still attend this high school if given the opportunity to go somewhere else. Reason being because their is so much is work on at EHS and I know hope that with the student population some change can happen."
