Proviso East isn't a bad school. the onle resaon there are 30 students to one teacher in becasue truthfully the is about 20 kidds to a teacher the rest of the kids don't coemto school and there are budgte cuts just like the rest of the schools .Proviso east is the oldes school and is actully doin better then it has ever been thanks to new actions being taken to improve the school. Many partent should know how to treat the kids like there children and not the friends all so that why most children act the way they do now.

I am a teacher a Proviso East for 9 years. I can tell you that the school has improved greatly regarding the rules and the enforcement of those rules. There has been zero tolerance for fighting and not doing the right thing. Now lets keep the students in class. Maybe I will have more than 10 parents out of 150 come to parent/teacher conferences!

Proviso East is a poor school. There are like 30 students to one class. There is never any soap and paper towels in the bathroom. The students are very disruptive and disrespectful. The school is plagued with voilence. We have to come through metal detectors every morning! I would not recommend this school to anyone.

I am a graduate of PE and now I am a teacher...when I attended PE there were issues that existed much like many schools but they also had many College Prep Classes and Advanced Courses....many of which I was enrolled in....PE helped me earn College Credit while in HS and inspired me to become a teacher in sorts. After I became a teacher...I taught there for a while and some of they stories you hear are correct. There are fights and students acting unruly and the like. But all in all it was ok...a few bad apples.

I am taking my son out of the school. For a solid moth I tried to get homework assignment because he was hospitalized. two teachers responded with no books, no notes and no concern about his health. The principle was useless. One of the social workers put forth effort to help.

I just graduated east and i think the school is trash. i have visited other schools around the state and east ranks no where in the same categorie as most suburban schools, violence is a horrible problem in the school and it needs to be handled.

Proviso East is a school full of violence, drugs and a horrible administration. With fights just about every day, there is no possible way to avoid conflicts in this school. The school have very low maintenance and is often extremely dirty. Students are smoking in the hall ways and bathrooms. While drug dealers sell around the entire school. The entire faculty and staff is lazy and uncooperative.

I am currently a Junior at Proviso East HS. East is a great school. But personally if i had a child, i wouldnt let him/her attend Proviso East. Theres nothing wrong abt the school, its not a bad school, but it has a bad name. Then again, its not always the name of the school that matters (although it helps a great deal), its what u put into ur learning experience. I have learned a lot from this highschool, the teachers are friendly and they help me with my work. Overall, Proviso East is an average school.....

I am a senior at proviso east. I loved East. There has be numerous things that has been said about Proviso East that have no truth to them. Proviso East has excellent teachers and plenty of academic programs and extracurricular activities. The band has completed many competitions and contests. Proviso East has 'nothing but the best' and I am living proof of that. L.Williams c/o 2005
