Reviews of Schools:
"The school is amazing they have fun things. I really liked it and the teachers are fun and nice very respectful kids so excepting and kind." - Apollo Elementary School
"When I attended Eisenhower middle school it was one of the greatest experiences I've had in middle school. My seventh grade year was kind of tough but when I became close to certain teachers that I had they helped guide me and move me through my whole 7th grade year. my teachers loved me to death, they said that I was a bright student and that I had more to come throughout life. My teachers are motivational and they actually believed in me, far as my eighth grade year it was the best year of all grade levels that I've been in. My guidance counselor helped me apply for high school that met my standards and that would help me get the Diploma and the education that I needed as an high schooler. My 8th grade teacher helped me with scholarship applications and helped me talk to college counselors about joining their sororities and their colleges. Eisenhower has a big impact on my high school life today, when I think about giving up sometimes I just think about my teachers from Eisenhower and my principal and my assistant principal and how they helped me and how they know that if I push myself and be more positive about certain situations in school, I can make it and everything I do in high school I do it for them and myself." - Eisenhower Middle School
"The school is excellent. They give you the option to go dual enrollment with some very well educated and high driven teachers and work plan. However, most of the students are lazy which therefore brings our reputations down. If someone really cares about the education they will come out well educated from there." - Lennard High School
