Eastchester High is a special place. Almost every teacher is concerned deeply about their students success, and every single one will work to help the student if the student approaches them. The student body is very spirited, and for the most part very studious and easy to fit in with. I've gone to Eastchester schools my whole life, and I wouldnt want it any other way.

Eastchester Highschool has excellent teachers, but the administration is something left to be desired. Disorganized and unfair towards the student body.


Posted November 3, 2013

Eastchester HS offers a wide selection of AP classes and honors classes. Excellent music and arts programs. Tons of sports and clubs to choose from. There is every opportunity to engage a student to be a part of the school and succeed.

The school is good for an above average child. As a parent, I just want a happy child. For my child, he always feels good and proud of himself as a high honor student without school and peer pressures.

The school is average, nothing really special about the school. When my parents made me go to this school in the seventh grade i was higly annoyied, the students were very disrepectfull and annoying. Then from their now to the 9th grade nothing has changed, it seems like it stayed the same. I really still dont want to be going there because it's almost no diversity, and the teaching could be better, but what can I say I came from Mount Vernon School District.

I'm a student here, parents think what they think but for the most part don't really know, they don't have to come in for 6 hours a day. I've listed my school as 3 stars, that's captioned as average, it is average, nothing special. Personally I hate my school, now there's nothing wrong with it, but not much right with it. It's very average, the teachers are average, the classes are average. I don't want to be average, I want to be above average, I do very well here, but I wonder, does that mean I'm very good at being average? I don't know, all I can say is, if i had all the memories I had now when I was in 6th or 7th grade and my parens offered to let me trasfer to a private school, I would, no doubt. But being a sophomore, I feel it's too late.

While it was may years ago the Eastchester Schools systems seem comparable to other areas schools. Flanked by school districts with larger budgets, Eastchester is an affordable alternate place to live & send your kids to school.

Eastchester is a small community with a quality school system. Teachers are caring and there is a strong support system for the students, many programs and extracurricular activities and the parent participation level is very high.
