I feel like this is a great school. It's up to the students to make the most of their education. The ESH choir is astonishing. It has been hard for African Americans in history. Education is important!

I like this school I rate it as a 4 even though they may fight a lot this is a good school. Why? Because they let the students wear what they best feel comfortable in and I like this school a lot even though they may need to get the school level up.....

I think my school has come along way including our wonderful principal Mr. Robey! I am a student at Eastside High School and I sing in the ESH Choir and my school is in an amazing transition, we learn more and have different techniques in learnig. Majority of the students are over acheivers ( i feel personally) but sometimes in life we as people are given reputation in life that are not true at a point in time , however as time progress we start living to those reputation. Our school is not a bad school it is fill with wonderful children who have a purpose in life and need support and not someone putting them down, which most of the time that is what is happening. Majority of our teachers strive to do their best to give us.

Coach Brady is a wonderful principle. He is continuosly monitoring class room making sure that the teachers are doing there jobs. He always stops by to give the class an ethical speech. It seems as though is only worry is for the well being of the school and the students who attend it. I am a sophmore at East Side High School and I must say that it has been wonderful being under his leadership. I personally love to hear him talk and give speeches. He does a great job at it. I have learned a lot from Coach Brady and I hope that he has learned a lot from me. ~Shera Phillips

First, I would like to start off by saying that EastSide is a very good school. There are many changes that have taken place since Coach Brady has became head principle. He really knows what he is doing unlike that last principal. Coach Brady Make school not only good for learning ,but he has also added extra fun to school. Like Funtagous Friday and Mystery Monday. He also let the student have dances that are safe and enjoyable. The school has never been better so just keep up the good work Mr. Brady. Thanks!

East Side is the best school that I have been to and I really am beginning to enjoy it even more. I like all of the 9th grade teachers and all of the activities that Principal Coach Brady have us doing. He is an awesome principal and he take good care of his school and the students and staff at the school. He will let no hurt, harm, nor danger come near the school. I think the district did a good job by hiring Coach Brady as our new head principal. He real knows how to work with the kids.
