    Very diverse you see all types of races because it's mainly military kids. Schools been there since the 70's so it looks a little old. ELLISON EAGLES!! Sports are great and the theater program is amazing ! There's a career center for all the high schools in Killeen where you can actually practice and get your licenses in your field. There is nursing ( HUGE program) , cosmetology, A/V production, anime, gaming, wielding, veteran and tons more. All in all, Ellison is like a regular high school but very crowded and open campus for lunch .

    Others should know that the school is all depended on what the student feels about the school and how they act upon it. There are some bad and good things I would have to say about the school. During in-between classes, it is very crowded. Some teachers are great and others, not so much depending on the student. I like how most teachers actually want to teach and help the students while other teachers teach but then not help much when asked for. The school could improve by having teachers/coaches teach us more and show us how to do things when asked for. The dress code is kind of ridiculous and should let some be excused such as tank tops and ripped jeans where it does not show too much skin and more except for very inappropriate clothing. Large majority of the students in KSID can read or write unlike what the parent had to review about below. It is just that they do not try or put effort into things.

    I think the review below by the Ellison student speaks for itself, they can't even spell. A large majority of the students attending schools in KISD can't read or write. My husband is now out of the military, so we are pulling all of our kids out of these schools and moving so they can have a decent education.

    Though my post will seem excessively negative, I must begin by saying that Ellison High School has a handful of excellent educators in the Advanced Placement and Dual Credit classes that strive to help students succeed. That being said, Ellison is an overcrowded, elitist school, where the strong succeed and the weak are pushed under the radar. The vast majority of the teachers at EHS are unmotivated and lack passion. They have low standards and are accepting of mediocrity. Though Ellison presents high scores on high stakes testing, it is most likely because the whole year is spent teaching to the test. Students are not encouraged to become life-long learners and value their knowledge, but are taught to regurgitate facts. My experience at Ellison High School was not dismal, but not stellar either. I hope that EHS rises to the challenge of providing an excellent education to ALL of its students.

    I have a student at Ellison...she loves it there and I love it. The parents or students that don't like Ellison..Are most likely the ones that aren't involved in anything. The ones you never hear from unless they are calling to complain about a teacher or that their student got in trouble over something.. and surprise their child acts just like them!!.... So they really have no room to talk.

    Elison HS is an awesom school It is very diverse . It is a bit crowded but all the high schools in this area are. Parent involvement sill exists here and you should not complain ifyou do not volunteer. The principal is outstanding. I would reccomend it to all over the other 3 highschools

    Not that great of a school, the faculty is pretty low, and there are only a couple of good teachers.

    Ellison High School is not the best school in the district. It is too over-crowded and not the best environment for a student to be in.

    I love Ellison. I'm in the band, student council, avid, and the bowling team and it's so much fun. Some teachers are mean but others, and majority, are actually in it for the kids. I am in french 3, ap english/history/calculus and pre - ap pre-cal and I have confidence in the people that teach me. People that talk down about Ellison don't know what they are talking about. It's amazinngg

    This year is my first at Ellison and I hope to graduate from Ellison ,its the best school in the district in my opinion I moved from Harker Heights just to attend Ellison I have the best learning advantage ever attending this school and I'm going to take advantage of it, its above average schools so I encourage parents to let the children attend Ellison High School home of the Screaming Eagles Class of 2011

    I feel so privileged to be a student at Ellison! There is such a variety of opportunities available for all of the students. We have a great athletic program, a lot of awesome clubs that are not only fun, but also look good on college applications, and our music department is no doubt the best in the district. There's no discriminations; every one has equal opportunities. It's up to the student whether they choose to apply themselves or not. All of my past and present teachers are dedicated and truly want their students to succeed, and almost all will use their free time giving students extra help. And the administrators are the best, hands down. They have a genuine care for the welfare of their students and eliminate the problems that are sure to come every now and then. They don't get enough credit! I LOVE EHS; GO EAGLES!
