I attended East Mountain for my last 2 years of High school and I am so glad I did. I was suffering from substance abuse problems and depression. At the rate I was going, I was not going to graduate. I attribute my success to attending EMS. The school offers extremely small, individualized classes and a number of activities and clubs you wouldn't expect from such a small private school. They show a movie every friday afternoon on a huge projection screen in the school's amphitheatre. Its a great way to end the school week. I'm very smart, and with all the academic and emotional support this school offered me, I was able to reach my potential with a 4.0 GPA. The school assigns every student a counselor. They REALLY help you. They are not like other schools and programs that tell you that you will get a counselor and then you never see one. Your counselor meets with you at least an hour a week, and any other time you need. I developed a very strong relationship with my counselor at EMS. I graduated 3 years ago now (and got a diploma from my public HS) and I am about to graduate nursing school. Thank you EMS!!!
