School Reviews

  • Recommended February 25, 2011 - People tend to give the standard academics a bad reputation because of IB. The standard academics here do not lack in any way, though I can understand how students would feel that way, being around so many IB students. EWHS put me far beyond the academic level of most freshman at college. The music program at EWHS is great, and other activities like drama, art, photography, and drafting are top notch as well. Facilities are excellent, and parent involvement it usually decent (it is great in specific, smaller departments). - Posted by Student/Alumni
  • Recommended September 26, 2007 - My son was supposed to be in special ed but I found nothing "special" about his "ed". He was denied a "FAPE" accomodating his unique and individual needs and he received no "related services". He was placed in the general ed curriculum and I felt it was a set-up for failure. He was treated like a freak by other students and was chronically and continually harrassed by other students for 2 school years. Even though I reported every incident, it was minimized and played down and allowed to continue. He also had an extremely rude IEP manager. He ended up feeling hopeless about school and was diagnosed with depression and now he's on medication for that. - Posted by Parent

Are the Three Rs Robbing our Children?
For far too long the American public school system has failed to address “out-of-school” factors like poverty and their impact on what happens in the classroom. As the nation continues to become increasingly diverse, many schools are adopting comprehensive approaches to education that account for the unique needs of students so that each child is prepared for their future and not just for a year-end test.
States Fight to Teach “Ignorant” Science to Students
Wyoming recently became the first state to reject the Next Generation Science Standards because of concern regarding lessons that teach human-caused climate change. Several other states have also taken measures to reject the standards, which has some education officials concerned about the quality of instruction students in those states will receive.
School-to-Prison Pipeline Persists Despite Local, State and National Efforts
Inadequate funding and resources for schools, harsh zero-tolerance discipline policies, police presence in public schools, and de facto segregation continue to create school environments in which poor and minority students have little chance of succeeding. The result is a continuation of the school-to-prison pipeline that has been commonplace in the American education system for decades, despite federal, state and local efforts to curb the problem.
