This school, so far, has exceeded my expectations. The faculty and administration genuinely care to help the student body succeed academically and socially. Further, they go the extra mile to bridge the gap between the classroom and home. Parents are empowered with multiple mediums to help them gain awareness of their child's progress. Kudos to Etowah's faculty and administration!

We have been extremely pleased with this school. Your child will get out of it what they put into it. The Principal is very involved and truly cares about the students. Most of the teachers we have been involved with have been willing to provide any extra time and help that the students need.

My daughter failed her English class. Why? No one seems to know. Also it's funny that she failed this class but then went on to get stellar SAT scores!?!?! What? There are TOO many students in this high school. Parents are expected to keep up with their childrens' grades but the grades are posted so late that it is too late to take any action. I can honestly say that I don't recall either one of my parents having to look at my grades in high school. That was MY job. Get it together. Hold students responsible for their work. If they don't do it, then ask the student why. Why do the parents need to even get involved with this issue? I am a straight A student all throughout grad school. By high school, it's up to the student. What are you teaching students when you think the problem has anything to do with the parents watching their childrens' grades via a non-updated grading set up online?

Muy four kids graduated from Etowah,as did two of my grandchildren. A third will graduate this year. The school was good back when my kids were there; it's excellent now. The average SAT scores are higher than the national average! Any parent who says "the school" failed my kids needs to examine his or her own priorities. Do you check to be sure your kids do their homework? When they bring home a bad grade, do you make an appointment to discuss it with the teacher? It sounds as though many of the complaining parents don't want to take any responsibility or get involved to any helpful degree. Education is a JOINT effort. You must do your part. (PS--I am not, and never have been an employee of Etowah or any other school.)

This school failed my child as well...he is not a motivated self starter and the school did very little to help him. Eventually he dropped out :o((( and got his GED. His GED score was very high BTW. He didn t even have to study to pass it. It tells me that he is a smart child, just not your average child and unfortunately this school did not recognize it and did not help him stay on track When he dropped out, he had F s in every subject except Science . He had an A in Science. This should have told the administrators and educators something about him but it didn t they just let him fail I am still sad even though it happened several years ago

This school has failed my child in many ways. All I hear is how it is a Blue Ribbon school. If your child is one who is a motivated self starter, then this school is probably great. If your child is not, they will do nothing to help them. My child is nearing the end of his freshman year and has failed all of his core classes. Repeated phone calls and emails to get him help have done nothing. I was recently offered a program to help him re-cooperate his credits. This program will cost me $400!! All because his teachers didn't care enough to help him not fail. And if your child's teacher recommends they come in for after school "tutoring", don't bother. Their idea of tutoring is to hand your child a packet of papers and expect them to complete it while they sit at their desks on their computers. NEWSFLASH! If my child is coming in for tutoring, he doesn't understand the work! He doesn't need to make it up, he needs you to teach it to him! This school is the worst and I am moving my family just so he and my younger children can have a decent education.

We have had 2 children attend Etowah High School with a 3rd about to enter. We are very pleased with the education and extracurricular activities. Etowah has improved 100 times from when I attended a close by east cobb school back in the 80s. Etowah continues improving in academics and athelics year after year.

We have 3 children that have attended Etowah . One is in College, one is a Senior and one is a Freshmen. Our Freshmen seems to be having the most trouble in Biology and the New Math 1. What concerns us is he is an IEP student and because of this it has made it more difficult for him to learn. We was told that not all the IEP teachers attend the classroom setting and our child has said that when the IEP teacher comes in they don't even ask if our child needs any help. Etowah has a policy that if you are late to class you get detention and this is why our child doesn't go to its locker. The sports has improved but if you have a student that plays then if that student doesnt get the class then he or she will have to run.

This school is the worst school ever they don't care about whether the students are learning or not. The best discipline they have is handing out detentions for anything. And if anyone says that the freshman will feel welcome thats not true. Last year as a freshman the upper classes just booed at us during pep rallies and told us to go home. I'm sorry but that is not welcoming at ALL.

Personally, as a senior two months from graduating from Etowah, I think my high school is the perfect stereotypical high school. Most of the students hate it, but that is to be expected. I think Etowah could focus a little more on writting, art, music, and acedemics. Its main concentration has always been on sports since the time I arrived almost four years ago. I'm a writter and would have liked to see more specific creative writting classes and/or clubs offered at Etowah other than journalism. And our art work...outstanding, but when does it ever get recognized? The administration is typical in my opinion. There is only so much the staff can do to discipline those of us that decide to be unruly. And the person that complained about Saturday school, I completely concur but I don't see any parents helping to come up with alternative solutions.

Since I'm a freshman, I've been pushed and shoved all over this school in the past months, and I think I know just about where everything is! The classes are one of a kind, and our sports program is outstanding (our 5-AAAAA football team made it to the playoffs!), and we have a variety of clubs to offer students. The only flaw of Etowah High School is the cliques...but that's easy to get around.

Etowah is a great school. My oldest daughter is now attending University of Alabama and is rooming with a girl that went to a top private school (they both are in the honors program). So far, my daughter is making higher grades than her roommate even in the subject that her roommate plans to minor in. The Principal is always trying to improve in every area including athletics. It is a large school with actually too many students. They are in the process of building a new gym which will include classrooms and they hope to enlarge the cafeteria. If you really want to learn, you certainly will at Etowah!!

An okay school. The food is okay, some teachers are less than stellar, but about 75% are above average, willing to do quite a bit for their students. The Administration can be very condecending, so i would recomend a small period of time spent here testing the waters.

As a graduate of Etowah High, I can now look back and see the good and the ugly. For a school that is over crowded, it does very well and is successful in academics as well as sports. Students have the opportunity to be involved in a variety of clubs and I felt that I was well prepared to move onto college. If your child is not willing to put effort into school, or is not taking honors/ap classes, Etowah will not provide any benefit for her or she.
