I think the school is going through a dramatic change with the re-district and everything. It needs time to situatate itself. Teachers and staff are trying to make helpful programs for our personal problems and education. We are always called the 'inner-city' school, but every school has a reputation and we just get targeted when something bad happens. I think the great teachers and friends makes it a good experience and I learn something new everyday.

As a former EA Student class of '05, as well as having two younger brothers that attend the school now, and a Mother, Aunt, Uncle and Many Cousins that attended the School, I know that this is by far one of the best schools. The Teachers are extremely dedicated to what they do. The School Sprit is extremely upbeat. We many not have one of the top football teams but we are behind them 100%. School has recently received a face lift which it really needed I mean the school is 43 years old after all, one of the oldest schools in the district. We always get a bad name but I think that out of the schools in the APSB we are by far the best. I mean how many time have you heard about something bad happening at EA. I love this school! Go Big Blue!

This school was wonderful before the APSB decided to begin changing the district lines. Nice people but 'school in decline'

I found the Ascension school district disjointed and corrupt. EA has become a 'dumping ground' as district lines are drawn to weed out 'undesirables' from other schools in the area. It is disgraceful and if not illegal, certainly unethical. The people of EA are nice and simply victims of this corruption. EA has an abundance of school pride and sports are a priority . Statistically EA is on the decline academically. New leadership is needed to deal with a corrupt district and inspire the teachers, students, and parents of EA to love learning.

The teachers at EA are completely dedicated and provide a wonderful opportunity for academic success for every student at East Ascension. Extracurricular activities are extremely successful and the school offers a variety of athletic, musical, and artistic opportunities.
