This school district is not a great quality school district; it's been like this for many years and it has not improved much in the last 20 plus years! In addition to this, the administration wants to pay the teachers 'higher salaries' than the homeowner can afford to pay in taxes. We are in the top 5 for Allegheny County as far as school tax is concerned and with the average salary being 25,000 to 40,000 in this area; the millage of 27.54 is much too high for this townships homeowners! There are many more quality schools in Allegheny County that aren't paying an average of 89,000 for a teacher with 10 years of experience and they have more to offer their students in academic programs than East Allegheny has overall. We are losing a lot of residents -as was pointed out recently with a township meeting due to the taxes being too high in this area; in particular the "School Tax for East Allegheny Schools!" Matter of fact the township is having difficulty getting businesses to stay in this area due to the high taxes here; thus many businesses are flocking to North Huntingdon and Westmoreland County! This school district is causing a lot of financial hardship on the homeowner!

I graduated from EA and have many fond memories of my high school years. However, times have changed along with the attitude of the students, parents and faculty. The experience my children have had at EA is the complete opposite. The students seemed to be just plain angry. They lack respect for each other, teachers or any other authority figure. There seems to be a lack of concern/involvement on the parents part. There is quite a bit of fighting even among the girls. There seems to be no consequences at home for fighting, disrespect, disruptive behavior. When a student does have a problem with other students their recommendation is to to put the child having the problem with bullies is to send the victim to alternative school. The school cannot control the bullies so they try to remove the victim. I was told they could not guarantee my child's safety. Yes, I too am appaulled. Appaulled at what has happened to a once great school.

I did not even want to give this school district an One rating! I had graduated from this school some time ago but I see nothing has changed and in fact it may of even gotten worse over time. The favoritism that goes on is just plain wrong, and what your last name is will depend on how happy you are there, because its all politics and always will be in that area.I would never suggest anyone who cares bout their child to send their child there, it was a nightmare for me and I still feel that way after many decades of being able to move away from there!

I attended East Allegheny myself, I wasn't the perfect student there, but a lot of it isn't the authority figures in the school. It's the students themselves. Times are changing now and so are kids. Their look on life is alot different from when I went to school and that was only a couple years ago. East Allegheny is not a bad school district, so what there's fights, like there are in every other school district. There's kids who back talk teachers, like there is in any other school district. East Allegheny is no different then any other school district, except for the teachers, if a student needs help, you can go to any teacher and they will be more then glad to help you. If they see your not doing well, they will pull you aside and help you out even without you asking. I loved my time at EA!

I have been a studentat East Allegheny for 10 years now, and I am truly appauled by these comments. I know that our school is not perfect, however, there are so many good elements that are bieng overlooked. We have wonderful teachers and there is a good disipline code. Yes, there is violence, but what shcool doesn't. I urge you to reconsider and see all the good in East Allegheny.

this is not a safe school, with many, many fights. The students have a strict understanding of what is right and wrong to do/wear/say/act and anyone who doesn't agree tends to be an outcast. Honestly, EA is a joke

I think that East Allegheny is a great school district. But we are so far away from other wider known schools and areas such as Pittsburgh, Carrick, Moon Township, Hopewell Area... I think that we should interact with these other bigger schools in western Pennsylvania. It would give our students more interaction with children their ages in other areas and make our school wider known. I think our school board should take this into consideration.

This school seems a little better this year. I am discouraged that no one recognizes extremely gifted kids and they are slipping through the cracks. Teachers are more focused on if a child completed a piece of paper than there learning style. Kids don't fit in a box and they are probably missing the Albert Einstiens' as his teachers did.

My sons hve been in this school district for 4 years. I have seen improvement in the school district concerning the academics the children receives and the racial diversity. There are still changes that needs to happen, however, over all, I am satisfied with what my son's have experience both in their academic and social community.

I personally think that the East Allegheny school district is doing perfectly fine! Our children are not in a bad enviornment. The teachers and administors are doing everything possible to provide a good education for each and every student. Tutoring is provided when ever it is needed, and as well as extra music and art activites after school. Of course we need improvement but so does every other school! Look at the students who graduated in the previous years, some are of to school with full scholarships. And others have made their own choices in life but that is not the districs fault! East allegheny is not a bad school and needs to be givin more credit for the things they do good for our children and not the things they do bad!

If you are a minority keep your child far away from the Jr/Sr High School. The principal and administrators are a joke. This used to be a decent school district. I'm a minority alumni and did very well academically. I never had the issues that my daughter has had during her tenure there. Needless to say, she is in private school now. If you want a quality education for your child, Leave This School Behind.

I think this administration and the teachers don't care and this reflects on the students. I have peen told by the principle that he is not in control of what the teachers do. No one returns phone calls from the principle on down. I have called the office on several occasions and talked to several different people and only the guidance counselor is the only one to return my calls. The homework hotline is a joke it is rarely updated if at all. The attitude of the students in learning is a direct reflection of the staff and administration.

East Allegheny School District has been below on their test scores because the teachers are not properly evaluating the students in their classroom. There is only an average of 18 students per class. Teachers should focus more on teaching then disciplining.

I think the school gives enough academic programs but the students aren't interested. The students in that school really don't care about how they do and need a better education.

There are enough extracurricular activities involving music and art but I think they need more sports.

EA is under new leadership this year. It is adapting a 'no nonsense' approach to education. There is a feeling that the school will be much improved in the next couple of years. Already, the school has shown many improvements through appearance. Dress code is also being addressed. We feel better about the overall quality this year.

Having graduated from East Allegheny, I've seen both good and bad sides to the school district. Over the years, I've seen teachers and students grow less and less interested in education. As with anything, there are still those few teachers and students exempt from this generalization, but overall, the school is going down hill and something needs to be done about it.

I think the school district lacks creativity regarding discipline and parent involvement. We spend money providing better teaching and learning tools but the scores show little or no improvement. Parent involvement is below standards. You as educators should improve relationships with parents and community.

I am an alumni of the school and the only thing bad I would say about it , is that the classes need to be more assertive. I believe anyone can skirt by with a 'c' average with out applying themselves very much at all, so what it needs are stricter classes and better grading curves to help motivate kids to work for their grades.

I graduated from EA 30 years ago and my oldest daughter just graduated this past June. I think its a great school! My youngest is a freshman at EA this year and loves it. I was very impressed with all her teachers at open house last week. Keep up the good work EA!
