Cranston High School East Reviews

My experience at Cranston East can be best described as a love-hate relationship. My freshman year, the amount of structural issues cannot be overlooked as we had a carbon monoxide incident and some pipes had burst. The school may not look as aesthetically pleasing as some other schools, but its not the outside appearance that matters, it is what's inside that counts. Cranston East has teachers that truly care, and would do anything for their students. I have never had an issue with any of my teachers these past four years, and I can happily say I am proud of the education I have received from this high school. The number one influence Cranston East has had on me though, is the exposure to diversity that you could not get at any school. You can find students from all cultural backgrounds, and with such a large student population, you encounter so many people different from yourself. Although Cranston East has had its downs, I will always be proud to be a thunderbolt.

I liked a majority of the teachers. The ones I had truly cared about the students and did their best to make our learning experience as fun and productive as possible. The overall environment of the school was also great as there were people from of all different diverse backgrounds. Most of all, the school did listen to many of the students' demands regarding testing and schedule changes, as well as the demand for more classes. All in all, attending Cranston East was enjoyable.
Cranston East as been an interesting experience. I feel as though the school administration failed when it came to classes. I had taken Algebra 2, in the 10th grade. I had expressed to my guidance counselor that the class was a bit difficult for me. She had told me just to keep trying. I then stayed after school almost everyday to get help from the teacher. I also did a tutor program in school and these did not help. I even had the head of counselors try and help but they did not listen to me. It was disappointing.
