    Great community. My daughter did great at this school. Real life experience. Totally prepared for college.

    This high school was a great choice for our children. A strong foundation that gave them multiple scholarships to their choice of nationally renowned universities is the strongest testament I can give. Our children have had great successes at university which are rooted in the education provided by Ewing schools.

    I'm a 10th grader at EHS and its an okay school and there are a few good teachers but the good thing is that they have so many activities so you will never get bored.

    Ewing High has many great choices of clubs and sports.The teachers are great and care very much about the kids. Some teachers even start clubs and don't get paid for their time. Some students don't care about an education and waste time in the classroom socializing.

    This school is okay they have a few good teachers but others need help on how to teach a class of high school students or need to be fired but my attitude about school has changed since my freshman year. But they also allowed me to be involved in school sports and programs that has helped me stay out of trouble.

    I loved this school. They had many academic oppurtunities and extracurricular activiities for an urban school. I loved it!

    Teachers should strengthen their students' proficiency in Math. More exercises should be done in class. More complicated examples shoulld be provided.

    As a former student Ewing High had everything to offer and then some. I am happy with my education and could not imagine going anywhere else.

    The high school could be rated as 'good' to 'very good' in my opinion. Like a previous reviewer I am pleased by the music and drama offerings of the school but I disagree with his/her comments about the sports programs. Winning isn't everything so even if the bowling team was the only team to win a state championship (Way to go kids!) the other sports teams are good for teaching our kids things like good sportsmanship teamwork etc. We need all the positive activities we can have to help kids develop. My child's experience with the academics has been mixed she's had some very good teachers and some who are so-so. I wouldn't say any of them were awful. Parent involvement seems limited by the school administrators. The only thing they seem to want parents to be involved in is fundraising. All in all EHS gets a B in my book.

    Ewing High School isn't as bad as every one says it is. There isn't as much violence as I expected. As a freshman I was happy that we have such a good music program. The drama department is nice as well. However I've found there is too much focus on sports at this school which is odd see as our bowling team is our only good team. A lot of teachers I've had are very good. They take the time to connect with their students. The office and the principal however seem nonexistent. They ignore complaints that you have (there's only one unlocked bathroom in the entire school at one time not fun) and think every child is bad because some are. The parents need to be more involved as well though I'll blame the office for having almost no school to parent communication.

    Ewing HS is more appreciated from the inside. It has some of the best teachers in the area who challenge those who are college bound and motivate those who are not supported at home. Parents who are in constant contact with teachers have successful students. Administrators and teachers do their best to provide Ewing residents the best education in Mercer County. The resources are there for those who want better in life. Society has to emphasize education as more important than what is heard in the pop culture music of today. Students are allowed to use the lavatory but must sign in to prevent smoking and graffiti. Smoking has been successfully removed from lavatories. The Basketball and Bowling Teams have been recognized throughout the state. The HS has one of the best discipline policies on dress code and cell phone use. More parental support is always needed.

    This school system has began a raducal change since the new principle has been welcomed to the school. He has taken a strong stance cleaning up the school. All in all this school has become one of the standards which many of the nation's schools should be modeled after keeping the students in a safe enviornment where higher instances of learning are encouraged and rewarded.

    I think that this school needs to worry a little bit more about the students. Not just the disapline but to get more personal with each student. i think it is rediculous that the kids cannot even go to the bathroom. Instead they have too walk around the halls for a spare bathroom to be unlocked or not vandalized. I am a current student at EHS and yes its not as bad as some peopel say it is. I think that the problem is the administration. I mostly mean the people in the office and such. They dont give the kids the room to express themselves. they think that sicne one kid is bad that they all are. and i hate to be looked at like that. Im a good kid. I dont get into trouble but there are several administrators who are rude to me.

    Ewing has a very diverse student population which presents a lot of challenges to the students and teaachers. The classes are very tightly laned which means that much less is expected and demanded of students who are in the lowest track. The quality of education varies drastically depending on which track a student is placed in. The school has a new principal so I can't really say whether the old methods will continue or not. Most of the students are genuinely good kids even if they seem to have a tough exterior.

    This is a great school with a good educational curriculum. The students are well taken care of and the sports program are great. It is very good in safety.

    As a current senior student at Ewing High I disagree with the other statement bashing my school. This school has numerous extracurricular activities and sports for students but the administration has problems getting the students involved. This can mainly be accredited to the lack of parent involvment. The administrators do look out for the well- being of the students but the discipline is inconsistent. The majority of the teachers here are of superb quality and are capable of teaching multiple honors and AP classes. The principal is often nowhere to be found during the school day and does not endorse AP classes. He also does not relate well with the student body in part to him not being outside his office for more than 5 minutes at a time. This problem is being rectified as a new principal will take over in April 2005. Long live the class of '05.

    Ewing may appear to be a good school on the outside but that is only because the administrators are good politicians. They really don't care about the kids...look at the lack of extracurricular activities! No wonder the kids are on the streets getting into trouble and destroying the neighborhoods! They have no desire to have school spirit because the administrators are only concerned about getting them 'in and out' without any 'hassle'. The teachers are great but are limited in their tasks by the administrators. Teachers who want to do well by the kids are 'squashed' by the administrators political boloney! When a parent complains they find every excuse in the book to blame the teacher! Teachers lose their credibility and ability to control their classes because of this. The kids get away with murder and are not being shaped to be responsible adults. Kids 'running the shool' is also unsafe!
