There are many clubs and activities to join, from sign language club to sports to an a capella group! Friendly and open environments allow students to feel comfortable while still pushing them out of their comfort zone.
While the teachers are usually very helpful and fully knowledgeable in their required field, the school does not have enough money or community support to truly and entirely support its' students.

Bristol Eastern is a very good school with good academics, good resources and a good community. The only thing I would like to see change with Bristol Eastern is more of an opportunity for students voices to be heard. An overall great school!
I am very glad I was able to attend Bristol Eastern High School. Students are exposed to diversity within their community and learning to work with one another. The majority of my teachers were excellent and I have not only learned and grown academically, but as an individual as well. Something I would like to see change is how the school district hires substitute teachers. This school year, I had three long term substitutes (one in Accelerated Calculus, AP Biology, Accounting 1). As nice as they were, I felt as though we did not learn as much as we could of if our permanent teacher was there. It is extremely important to me that I get as much as I can out of my education, therefore, substitute teachers must be more qualified for the classes they are put into.
