Seems like a good school, my kids are doing well and have a great attitude. What this school needs is to concentrate on is their marching band. It is really embarassing how other schools compare..this I do not blame on the band members or directors they are so strong to put up with what they are given and deserve better. The band IS important they represent the school. Times are tough..yes BUT what does it take to give a pat on the back?
I am a recent graduate from Eastern York, and overall I loved high school. I was actively involved in the athletics and music department. Eastern was always praised for the well-behaved and talented students with great sportsmanship. I am attending a college in New York, and I have noticed that although I personally did not score as well on the SAT's, I have learned more and got more out of my high school education compared to other students that have attended private and Catholic schools at my university. I felt very safe at school, and there was a place for everyone. I noticed that overall, the students, faculty and administration got along well which made school enjoyable and productive. I recommend this school if you are looking for a school with a great view and an emphasis on helping your child become well-rounded, happy, and appreciated.
When I went to school there it was a awesome school! Great teachers who really care about their students and getting them the best education they possibly can!
The quality of academic programs is very good. My child has access to many sports, music and extracurricular activities. I find that many parents are involved and interested in helping.
I am also an Eastern graduate. I must say that I was in the business track there thinking I would not attend college but would go into the working world. I ended up changing my mind and going on to college. I first earned a two year degree in accounting. After I immediately transferred and went on to earn my bachelor's degree in Elementary Education. My motivation for wanting to become an accountant was my accounting teacher at Eastern. She was a terrific teacher! My motivation for becoming a teacher instead was the teachers I encountered from my own education in Eastern York School District. I can't say I wouldn't have been better prepared if I had chosen the academic track, but I did just fine without it. I would definitely send my child to Eastern. There's a great mix of people there. It's all of what you make of it!
I noticed the other review, and I'm not a parent either, but also a former student (1989). I, like many others, was not entirely fond of high school. However, after going to college and on to grad school, I can honestly say that Eastern School District prepared me for the competition I faced from other students, while allowing me to express my scholastic and athletic abilities in a safe and supportive environment while I was there. Now that I'm in my early 30s and thinking about my (future) children, I can only hope they can go to a school that is even close to what I experienced at Eastern High School.
I'm not a parent, actually, just a former student to Eastern York. I've gone to Eastern my entire life, and I can honestly say that they have not provided me with the tools I needed to get through life. I definitely would not suggest this school to anyone.
