I attended Eastside for one year and ended up transferring to Wade Hampton. EHS is a highly acclaimed academic program, and the atmosphere is fantastic, but there's a strong clique element in the student body. While the facilities are warm and bright, and school spirit is incredibly high, the student body is rather standoffish, especially to newcomers. Wade Hampton, while having a more institutional facility, was a much more inviting school.

My two kids had an excellent experience at EHS. They excelled at academics and were involved in sports and LOVED their cross country and running coaches. They loved the arts available at Eastside and participated in art classes and chorus during their four years. The student body was diversified, and that is one of the things my kids loved about their experience. While some teachers were mediocre, others were outstanding, and their courses were rigorous and inspiring. The English department was especially good. The student body pulled together and were generally warm to one another. Student leaders were typically of high moral character and were kind to others. Drama in the school was rare. Teachers were pretty responsive to parental concerns. The new principal is very involved with the student body, as are parents. The new school and sporting facility upgrades have been awesome. The grounds could use better landscaping and mature trees -- as the building's aesthetics do not evoke warmth on approach. My kids' physical education experience was abysmal. There is such an opportunity to get kids active and teach nutrition and healthy living, but in their words, "It was just a joke."

Our children attend Eastside by choice, not by geography. We have found it to be a caring and academically challenging environment. We have also been pleased with the coaching staff. The teachers generally take an interest in the students-we frequently see them at athletic events (not just football games--). The teachers and coaches are responsive to parent concerns and actively seek to help the students. The student body seems to generally value achievement and academic success. The new principal is an outstanding leader with a great vision for the future of Eastside. The experience our children are having at Eastside should be what all parents want High School to be like for their children.

Like any public school, Eastside has its postives and negatives. Our son has been very happy there and is receiving a great education. The new principal is providing outstanding leadership as well as an environment the kids can feel confident in. He is very visible and is available to students as well as parents. The Athletic Department has had some struggles, but the new principal has already taken great strides to amend these issues. We are so grateful that we are zoned for Eastside High School.

I've had 2 students at EHS, and the teachers just do not seem to care much about the individual students. Principal is non-existent. Overall they received a pretty good education, because we pushed them...not the teachers or staff at EHS>

A great school with tons of parent involvement and high standards. It is one of the cleanest school buildings I have seen in Gville County. They have wonderful athletic programs and the FCA programs is growing stronger each year. The students come from strong moral families and the students display that of great integrity. The students are proud of their school and it shows. Just look at how much money they bring in during spirit week. They love their school enough to work hard in many areas.

The leadership and general process ineffective and closed minded. Education should and MUST be better than Eastside.

Eastside High School is one of the best schools in the state of South Carolina. From the high calibur of teachers to the huge level of parent involvement. You can truly see that not only the faculty, but the students as well, care about the sucess of Eastside as a whole. One of the major factors making Eastside such an amazing high school is the availablility of the arts. The Choral program is very well established, and the mixed concert choir is amazing. It is nice to know that Eastside and the school district are commited to funding such a program. I think Eastside is one of the best high schools in the state of South Carolina, not to mention the Southeast.

This school is lacking on the part of adminstrative duties. It caters to one ethnic group and the concern of the faculty and the teachers are very low.
