First year at this school. Not how i expected high school to be like. Theres only about 500 people at this school, and theres probably about 450 kids who failed 1 or more classes for the semester. A lot of kids here are doing drugs too, sometimes right in class. I cant name one person who doesn't bring weed, ecigs, or tobacco to school. The teachers... Awful. There are some good ones, but overall they're horrible. A lot of them dint even care for the students at all. And also I actually had 2 teachers lie to my parents at the conferences, a lot of other people had the same problem like i had with that. Also the whole school thinks they're the best in the country just because it was remodeled and got some stupid distinction award, well that doesn't make the whole place better. So overall, this school is AWEFUL. If you're thinking of having your kid come to this school, don't have them. It is a really terrible school. The town of Eatonville is also terrible but thats a whole different story. So again. EHS is a bad school. Failing grades, drugs, non caring lying teachers,and much more, but i couldn't fit it all. So please don't come to this school or this town.

I hated this school I attended for a school year and it sucked. Not because I needed to attend school but because the language used by the students was so profound it was scary. The teachers don't really monitor the students during lunch time. I don't think the teachers really cared. If your student tells you this school is horrible then it's true.

I am concerned about the apparent split between the :in : group and the out group at the HS. The administration seems more concerned about his appearance than the kids. Lot's of bully issues and lots of struggling students. I just don't think these people have been taught how to help kids do well. They need to be more encouraging and not so bull headed. There needs to be a change in leadership in this entire school district

We are two Eatonville High school students. We have been through alot with this school from the remodeling to the bad administration. Most of the teachers are rude and uncaring. They also punish for no apparent reason. Don't get us wrong there are a couple good teachers that make the school worth it.But only a couple. Eatonville is not an outstanding school.

Eatonville was amazing. I owe my heart and soul to every instructor that took the initiative to help better my life and those I come in contact with. I can only hope the development of the district and influence it has over all life will continue to expand and grow with a benefit to all human kind.

I have a child that is a currently attending Eatonville. We live in another school district but chose Eatonville H.S. over the H.S. in the district we live in b/c of the smallness of the student body and the hometown community feeling. We have found the teachers to be mostly great (there is always the exception). I do feel, however, that I have to be a little more diligent in who my child chooses as friends from this school, more so than other schools attended. I do feel like the teachers have the best interest of my child at heart at all times. Overall, I'm glad we made the change.

We moved to Eatonville so that I could have a better environment as I entered high school. Instead we found a community and school system that is closed minded and a school administration staff that cares more about rules and looking good, then the students. A 2005 Eatonville Grad.

I am a parent who has three children in Eatonville schools. I am very disappointed in the high school. I find that there are only a handful of really good teachers. Mostly fair to poor. The math department is the worst I have ever seen anywhere. There is not a teacher that a parent or students would say is a good teacher, teaching algebra 1 or above. The administration there seems to be overly bias against anyone with a different point of view. They seem to care more about the rules then the students; they don't help them learn from their mistakes they just punish them. If you speak up, you are worried that your child may become a target.

I went to Eatonville High and my girls have gone to Eatonville schools also. I find Eatonville to be a good school. Safer than most maybe not the best for education but not the worst either. There WASL scores for the year are above the state average so it cant be that bad. I can't think of a better school for my kids to have gone to.

I attended EHS and found that the only good part about it were the teachers (mainly Mr. Dawkins and Mr. Houghee) and the drama club/class. The Administrators there were overly bias aginst anybody with a different view than them. I was expelled (temp) for a rumor that was started as a joke. I later had to fill out much paper work and do over 400 hours of community service to once again attend EHS. And when I was readmitted I was placed in a rather offencive outplacement (Home work class) that did absolutely nothing to further my education.

I have three kids in this Eatonville schools. A child in each one. The teachers and other staff are very caring! The parents that go in to help are so wornderful to give their time. The education that they are getting is a good one. The teachers really apply themselves in to the leasons. The kids love them. There is mutual respect between the teachers and the kids. I can't thank them all enough for giving my kids a safe and caring place to learn.

My child benefited from a very talented and caring teaching staff at Eatonville High School. He loved high school and went to a very competitive college well prepared to meet the challenges there.

Our children attended Eatonville High School, Middle School and Elementary School. Due to a work transfer we left this district and went to another district. We returned to Eatonville to find our children so far advanced that they could not receive a decent education in Eatonville without doing running start and attending college courses. We received permission to attend an out of district school and found the curriculum that met our needs. The Eatonville school system is the worst we have ever seen or heard of.
