The teachers are great! However, I thought the environment could have been more welcoming and inclusive. There was also a large focus on sports, especially football while other sports like soccer, swimming, and baseball and activities like music, art, and language were often overlooked.

As an Alumni of Central Bucks East, I can say this school has well prepared me for college academically. The rigor and expectations of the courses were always well explained and well correlated with the teachers. The harder the course the more enjoyable I found the teacher was able to make the class. In extra-curricular activities the director or coach was always accompanied by a respected staff/team. From what I gathered from my peers the activity was tough but many found assets in participating. The students who disliked staff I found only fostered these feelings from the staff not allowing common sense school codes to be broken; The disdain was rarely justified. All in all I had a positive time at this school, I developed a great work ethic, and social/academic relationships through many classes, sports and ensembles.
Central Bucks East was a very good high school to go to, it was in a very safe area, and was not on a major road so there really wasn't anything to worry about vehicle wise. The classes were taught by mostly very intelligent teachers, who wanted to see you succeed and helped when asked for it. East had security guards and took the safety of it's students very seriously. All the principles were very amiable and easy to talk to if you had a problem. The only reason I did not give it a five star review, was because east was also strict in some aspects on things that were not really that important. For example, you weren't allowed in the hall during class hours or homeroom if you didn't have a pass. They took that pretty seriously and would write you up. Also, no one expects school food to be very good, but still the food was disappointing, though they did have a coffee shop which was definitely a bonus.
