I'm a student who has attended Eielson for the past year and I wouldn't change it for anything else. Although this school is small it sure does make up for it in how close each one of us are and is to each other. Being my senior year I have tried to get involved as much as I can with extracurriculars and it is not very hard. Eielson doesn't have the best selection i'll admit that but the things we do have are outstanding.

I am and have been attending Ben Eielson for 2 years now I hope to graduate here it has been a great 2 years. Ben Eielson might be a small school but it is very fun and you learn alot here. I think my favorite classes would have to be my spanish class with Senora Dementiff and my Art class with Mrs. Stoughnburg I love this school and I think that the teachers and students are great. The best part about this school is the school spirit everyone has for there Eielson Ravens.....GO RAVENS!!!
For such a small school Ben Eielson is a good school. There is nothing wrong with the teachers they know their subjects and teach them well. However my family feels I could further my education better at another school. The class selection is very limited. We're leaving.
I was lucky enough to attend school at Ben Eielson High School. Even though I only was here for one year the students and staff here will always be in my memories. I had countless amazing times here. Air Force JROTC was always fun and something new. I will always remember how MSgt Corbett and Lt. Col. Brodale were always there in times of need. JROTC was the best class. I will never forget the Drill Meets we went to and how we felt when we placed at The State Finals. Thank you everyone for welcoming me at Ben Eielson. I will never forget you.
This school is simply amazing. I am a cadet and the United States Air Force Academy and a big part of why I was able to make it here is because of Ben Eielson High School. One of the greatest programs avaliable at this school is its outstanding JROTC program. This program is well run and rewarding just as the whole school. This school is wonderful.

I am a former student of Ben Eielson High school. As I have studied to become a teacher myself over the last few year I have come to an even stonger feeling that attitude reflects leadership. One of the reasons I choose to become a teacher is because of the extremly poor education I was given. I do not beleive in sitting on the bench and complaining about the players. I have opted to do something about education and leadership.
I'm a student at Ben Eielson high school. I'm in the tenth grade and I have benn here from the seventh grade. This school is great if you have any problems don't be scared to ask. Everyone's ideas around here are if you know everything then you wouldn't need to be in school. Everyone is really nce here the classes are very small so you can get as much help as needed. I play volleyball basketball and last year I managed softball this school has something for everyone.
