The teachers pick their fav students like they will pick the preppy people and the smart people and then they will be rude to the kids who aren't the preppy ones or the smart ones and they allow kids who are pregent still go to the school. Iam not saying its wrong to not be pregant in school its just that the kids that are pregant are examples for younger students. But overall I wish my daughter could go to a diff. school.

I went to East Junior High School, last year and it was the best school I had ever went to. And would not want to go to another school. The principal Dr.Sweet is always on top of things. It is a clean school. There is plenty to do; such as Student council, newspaper, swim team, basket ball. Ther is something for everyone to do. And the teachers are really involved with the students they dont pick their fav.
