As an Eastern alumni and young professional I can't thank my Eastern enough for helping develop me into the person I am today. I had a great relationship with most of my teachers and appreciate the time they dedicated to my education (as well as some laughs shared during and after class). My best life example showcasing the excellence of Eastern showed itself during my freshman year of college. I found that I was much more competent than my peers at completing tasks and adhering to standard submission based standards like MLA formatting and technology/multimedia presentations (I was NOT an honor student while attending Eastern).
I was a student here and my experience at this school was not pleasant. There is a lot of bullying in this school and there needs to be more teachers in the hallways to monitor what students are doing. in addition, the school is extremely overcrowded. some teachers at eastern are not flexible in their teaching and act almost as immature as the students.
horrible school. they try to make all kids the best and smartest but just arent cut for doing it. the staff is horrible and the kids in this school arent intelligent at all also sports is one of the worst things in this school
Only focus is on kids who PLAN on attending college. No 'basic' curriculum, all 'accelerated' and 'honors'. In my opinion, this sets kids who are not as highly skilled, up for failure. Classrooms are overcrowded. Has excessive amount of administration when there should be more teachers.
As a parent of a freshman, i find that there are many teachers who cannot teach their subject matter and should not be teaching. the administratiion is unresponsive to parent requests to have these teachers observed and mentored. also, there have been many fights (girls) in the hallway . i didn't expect this .
I currently have a student in the school and one that graduated a few years ago. My experience has been that there are some teachers and staff that know how to do things one way and do not adapt to student needs or situations. Flexibility does not see to be their strong suite. If you are the best of the best this is probably an ok school. Some where in the middle you might be in trouble.
Some teachers are terrible at what they do. Just go through the day and dont care about how well they teach. Others are to picky and are teaching a honors level english at the same pace as a accelerated english. They teach part of a lesson and then on tests and quzes will have part of a lesson that they never tought on the quize. This is not all the teachers but i would say 30% are like this.
I just graduated within the last few years from this school and it wasn't a positive experience to say the least. Even in honors level courses, the teachers do not teach. The administration decides to punish some students for minor infractions and to not punish other students who cause a lot more trouble. So disappointing to have a school like this in this kind of community.
Eastern high school has educated my oldest son(now 21) who is presently an honor student at a Florida University, my second son is a junior with a 3.25 GPA and is thinking of law school, and my daughter (14) will be going there too. I willfully live in Voorhees because of the excellence in educational quality of our schools. Those parents that cry about the lack of individualised attention to their kids should try paying for private school and not getting the same results.
This school does NOT optimally consider the individual student. There is bullying by the teachers and students and they need to get a clue how to make their attitudes and the school environment less toxic. Most interactions have been a DISGRACE.
the teachers are concerned for their students and will do anything to help them out.
