If you're worried about gang activity, safety,or quality academic programs; then east jr high in west memphis is the school of choice. They have a high level of parental support & staff involvement. The prinicpals & staff monitor their children the old time way. They monitor the hallways, talk/counsel the disobedient kids, reward the honor roll kids & recognize the children who want to learn & have made significant improvement. When it comes to sports & other activities, we the parents are involved & supportive. They have a teaching staff which challenges the students academically & invites community leaders/role models to give advice about choices in life. I love this school & my daughters attitude has improved positively.

My daughter attended East 2004-2005 she will be attending West Memphis High School this year. We moved from Memphis, TN and I feel that just being at East one year has really prepared my daughter for High School. She felt really challeged at East and she excelled greatly. She was on the Honor Roll the entire year. This is a wonderful school.
