  • Erwins attempt to "change" is failing miserabily. The kids are treated like criminals. My daughter is a straight A student and has nver been in trouble but is still treated like she is a bad kid. The majority of the teachers dont care. The guidence counclers and office workers act like they are consently annoyed by the students and parents that come in. TERRIBLE

  • Starting with erwin middle school then my son going to clyde a erwin high school.Kids using drugs and selling them is a big problem at both schools.The resource officer can only do something about it if the drugs are seen. And a whole lot isn't being seen.I,d like to get a group of parents together to help combat this problem. Because it's not going to get better.

  • I personally adore Erwin! The teachers are very sweet and truly care about the students. Students try very hard in everything they do. Most of the kids are very sweet. Students meet with counselors to discuss their schedules and college plans regularly. I also feel that no matter what school you send your child to, there is going to be inappropriate behavior and there will always be cliques. Also, I have witnessed Erwin regaining it's pride and I feel this is so important for maintaining a good atmosphere for the kids.

  • Unfortunately, I had no choice but to send my child to this school. If I could have afforded to send her elsewhere I would have. This school has deplorable communication with parents, a dreadful student success rate, and and among the worst guidance I have ever known. I wish I could sue the school for the damage it has caused my family for its lack of support, parent-school coolaboration, and implementation of basic protection for its students.

  • I graduated from this school a couple of years back. All the guidance counselors do is not attempt to even prepare students for the real world. They leave kids to their own devices to figure out their lives. I remember I was applying to some high end colleges and the guidance counselors were little help and I barely got accepted.

  • I am very disappointed with this school.
    The drop out rate is terrible. My child is a junior and has yet to meet with a counselor. No career planning and no one taking an interest in the student's goals.The Administration at the School is not interested or is not receptive to feedback. The children of this district does VERY well in elementary school so what happens at the High School?
