this school is cool because, not only is the teachers willing to teach the students the students is very eager to learn
—Submitted by a student


Posted October 11, 2007

East high school seems to be inconsistent in it's disciplinary system and there appears to be a lot of pacifying parents in person and dealing with the students differently when parents are not there. Teachers are ok at best but the administration is very 'sneaky' in it's dealings with parents. Lot's of drama, both from students and administration.

Due to the fact that teachers and most student show no interest in learning is what is truly holding this school back if students and teachers were both giving 100% on a daily basis the the school would be run much more efficiently.

Posted January 19, 2007

This school's lack of dedicated teachers and students is prohibiting the principal to efficiently run the school 'correctly'. Her dictatorship like rulings are a result of students and faculty's actions, which is often misunderstood as her being mean or what not.
