I love Eastern- All the teachers are wonderful. You get a great education at Eastern... It is Greenwich so there are some (mean) girls....but there are A LOT of really nice kids too. There is a lot of sports and after school activities to participate in. It is a GREAT school! I think the best part about it is the teachers though. 99% of them are the best teachers I have ever had. I will be in 7th next Yr and I am so exited to continue being a part of Eastern.
