School Reviews

5   5/21/2012
Encinal High School is a community that cannot be found anywhere else. The staff gives their whole life, and sometimes their family does as well for the betterment of lives of all students. The AP programs are very successful. Encinal while exceptional in their academics also stresses the importance of being part of the Jet community. There are a number of extracurricular activities that shape the student as a whole. The Jet community is very loyal and tight; as they say, "once you''re a Jet, you''re always Jet!"
