The school has a host of AP classes taught by top notch teachers, many with master's degrees or higher, out performed more affluent schools in the FWISD, such as Paschal HS, in such fundamental and important areas as Algebra in 2012 and 2013 and produced the fifth highest count of distinguished matriculants per Geometry STARR EOC results out of the district's 14 high schools. The school has excellent athletics, student driven after school programs, a high quality student program of choice for professional development, and the 2013 All-District EHHS Champion Chess Team. It is hardly a poor, impoverished, ghetto, or shameful school as some reviewers have posted. It is quite the opposite. The upswing of the school is so permanent, so meaningful and dramatic that some of the school's less burnished past is truly now, just a thing of the past. The schools old motto has been brandished once more: PRIDE OF THE EAST SIDE. It is a well deserved motto!
Eastern Hills is a great school ! The teachers take care of us and try their verry hardest to make sure we have everything we need to learn. We may not be filthy rich like Northwest IDS, But we have something that they don't have and that's caring teachers and were all a family here. The gang activity has gone down alot since my freshman year at Hills.I honestly recommend this school for anyone looking for a transfer to a great school !
Since Ms. Washington became the principle of Eastern Hills, things have taken a complete turn for the better. The attendance rates are higher and the want for education is as well. The teachers here really do everything they can possibly do for their students, even if they are rowdy, trying to make them open up and seeing what really is the problem and giving them someone to talk to. Many don't see us in the light we see ourselves because of all the past history at Hills but things have changed and it's not the school or the staff who have given it the bad reputation is holds, but the past bunch of students who made there bad actions stand out. Now a days people really enjoy the friends and times we've spent at Hills. Im a senior and I can honestly say that I'm going to miss Hills.
The school overall is awsome.Its not the teachers is just some the students.2011 they really focus on education and scholarships for the students.
This school is really awful, the students and teachers there are so rude, and nasty. According to my son, there are always fights, and he says that even while walking down the hallway, other students seem to be rude and bulgar towards teachers and they do not get any type of punishment. This school needs to suspend or do something with all of those bad students and teachers... Thats why i had to move my son to a nearby school. Nolan Catholic. In conclusion , do not send your children to this school, the lack of education and discipline from teachers and students is shameful.
I honestly think that my school gets horrible reviews due to past experiences. I've been attending EHHS for the past 4 years and I will admit, the environment wasn't the best both my freshman and sophomore years. We went through principals like crazy and the students were unruly to say the least. But It seems to be that the classes before ours didn't really know how to act, because now there is hardly EVER any trouble throughout the school. Our new administration is doing very well and they all seem to be respected from all of the students and things seem to be looking up for us. We just had to get rid of those bad seeds!
Enter your review herei am currently attending EHHS and its really a pretty good school the principals lack discipline to bad kids but other than that some teachers are rather nice.
I have recently graduated from Eastern Hills and i loved it. Maybe the academics are not what they should be compared to other schools, but i came to EH the last semester of my junior year from Saginaw and was considered 'the minority'. No were not the wealthiest of kids, there are gangs and no it is not the best kept school with a heating and cooling system that actually works. But the teachers try really hard. Its worth more going to a school where everyone is not afraid to be themselves, where the teachers teach you something more than whats from the book and actually care about you finding a ride home...Beyond we see whats truly important. People say we wont be prepared for college i think different.
this school is a very unorangansed and is very bad...there inviroment is very bad.they always
I graduated from Eastern Hills in 2007. I admit Eastern Hills is a overcrowed and the gangs are all over the place. My thing is its your choice on what you do or who you hang out with. I went there all four years and never had a problem. I hung out with the same 5 people and then also with my team mates. I got involved in school activities such as volleyball and softball and did great in both sports and made myself known not just inside the school but also outside the school. I graduated recommened and got into a great college. So eastern hills is what ever you make it while you are there.
Consistently equips and produces students of all races that positively impact our world for the better.
I love this school, the teachers show that they care and they try their best to see us succeed. I am very upset that my mom had me removed from this school. They have great programs to offer for us students!
I would rate this school as a 1. My son attended there for six weeks. It was a relief to transfer him out to a differnet high school. I felt so strngly about getting him out of there I moved to a different school zone to do it. The students are unruly. Many times I visited the school at different times of the day to see students wadering about everywhere. Up the street, in the halls, outside, and etc. This school is unorganized. On the suface the staff appears to be panicked and does not have control over the mass of students. Overall I believe the teachers are good, they are willing to bend over bakwards for a student that desires an education and who is willing to do what it takes to excell.
I am a former 10 grader at eastern hills . The school is really amazing to me and all my friends. We have some of the worlds smartest teachers here! And now we are going to be even better with Dr.Jan Norton as are principal we finallyhave someboody who beleives in us and that takes are eduation serious. Before you judge us get to know us and see how wonderful we are.
I'm a former student who graduated #4 in the 2005 class. I recieved a full academic scholarship to Texas A&M University, and great scholarships to the other schools I applied to as well. I recieved a soccer scholarship to one school, and coming from Hills that is saying something. I know how to relate to people from all races and backgrounds, and that is going to help me tremendously in life. I learned that at Hills. Some of my best memories happened there. There are amazing teachers, and most of them teach Honors or AP courses.
This is a terrible institution, if one can call it that. I removed my child from this school once I visited it during school hours. No good parent would allow their child to attend this school.
I am a current student at Eastern Hills. The academic programs are terrible. The course work is watered down to an insane degree. Most students who leave Eastern Hills will not be able to keep up in college. Eastern Hills does not teach students good study habits. I would strongly advise against attending this 'school.'
I am a former student at Hills.It has a very outstanding academic program. The teachers are always on point, and they make you understand.
we did have a child in Eastern Hills high School and decided it was better to move to another district than to return him to this school. I cannot think of anything good about this school. We encountered problem upon problem not only with the teachers but with the stigma of no control in this campus. I know that there are safety issues here but it is not all the problem of the school I guess it is the culture also.
