Student, Ellender Memorial High School, Class of 2017,
It would depend on where you came from. For me, personally, I would choose this atmosphere over many others. While we may not have the best reputation, it is because of the sole fact of our location. If you are used to living a sheltered life, completely apart from the struggles and authenticity of growing up poor, or gay, or any type of minority, then no. Do not come to Ellender. However, if you need a place that will accept you, and teach you regardless of any prejudice or stereotype one might have in their mind, then yes. Come to Ellender. Come and be a part of something bigger.
