....This school also stops bullying as soon as they are aware of it! NKC school district has written procedures/course of action to deal with any bullying so you'll know if the ball is dropped and by whom! But to my experience, it doesn't need to be dealt with outside of the school staff! They are very serious about stopping the bullying!! The principal is A+, teachers are A, office staff is an A, student diversity is A!!! I'll be sad if/when we move out of the district!!!

I enjoyed going to Eastgate Middle School. Amazing support from teachers, principals, and parents, that knows the student on a personal level. I don't think we excelled at sports, when I went there..

Here is a review of EVERYTHING available to you when you go to Eastgate Middle School, the best school there is. I am currently in 8th Grade so you can expect the best from me. Right now Eastgate is allowing students to participate in events from Local to National! A national event would be Ecybermission, which is sponsored by the military. While the local events are minor things like Cross Country, Volleyball, Student Council, and even a Basketball team for Girls and Boys. The academics exceed most expectations because of students and parents, now doesn't that tell you something about our principle? I am part of our school's 'Leadership' program, which is like an exclusive school club that helps our school become a better place for everyone. Now, if I answered every question you have about our school, doesn't that also tell you something about what I've learned at Eastgate?

I was a student at Eastgate, and I have to say that it was a great school. I loved most of my teachers and became close to a numerous amount of them. The principle is about the best there is, he will talk to you when you need to be talked to...the counselors are great and they are nice and actually care. Eastgate it a great school. I would recommend it to anyone.
