I am a senior at Eastern, and I am very pleased with Eastern, with only a couple exceptions. There are a few bad teachers here and there, but that's to be expected. For the most part, teachers really care. They can be your friends and your instructors at the same time. The community as a whole is extraordinary as well. I feel like I have a family at Eastern. I would rate it 9/10.
Eastern High School is an absolutely amazing school. The teachers are hardworking and do whatever than can to help you succeed. I believe Eastern is one of the best high schools you could ever send a child to.
The teachers at eastern highschool do not care if your children fail or succeed . I worked very hard to get U's the whole school year. The teachers just tell the kids answers and walk away. The school is falling apart and the faculty worries more about if your shirts tucked in than if your doing well.They DO NOT! involve parents whatsoever.If you want your kids to get a QUALITY education. DO NOT SEND THEM TO EASTERN!. THe teachers use suspensions as a scare tactik. They will suspend you for talking, writing on the board when they didnt ask you to , and not tucking in your shirt. theese area all minor offences that have been blown way out of proportion!.. so once again whatever you do ! ABSOLUTELY DO NOT! SEND YOUR KIDS TO EASTERN! IVE BEEN HERE FOR 2 YEARS AND IM MISERABLE!~ IF YOU WANT YOUR KIDS TO BE HAPPY SEND THEM SOMEWHERE ELSE. BUT EASTERN IS BY FAR ONE OF THE SCHOOL IVE EVER BEEN TO.
