Throughout my 4 years at Cranston East, I've grown into a more mature, educated, and open minded young adult. With the guidance of the most caring and engaged teachers and counselors, I strongly believe that I am well prepared for college and the future. I have gained lots of friendships and memories from classes and clubs at Cranston East that I will cherish forever, such as the restoration of he Vietnam Memorial executed by my fellow cadets in JROTC, or the many friends that I have met through the step team, track, or other clubs. If there was anything that I could change about Cranston East, it would most likely have to be the block scheduling system.I believe that there has been many complications and confusinon throughout the year thus far, and believe that many would prefer the original scheduling more.

Cranston High School East offers an extremely diverse community of students and teachers. As far as academics go, many rigorous honors, AP, and dual enrollment courses are offered that have left me feeling well prepared for college. The teachers truly care about their students' success in the classroom!
Cranston East shaped me into the young woman that I am today. Walking into my freshman year of high school, I was very quiet and reserved because I really did not know how to cope with the whole high school experience. Now, going into my senior year of high school, I am more outgoing and outspoken. I have become more involved, being the captain of the step team and helping out with the unified volleyball team. Cranston East prepared me for my life after high school and I am forever grateful. In the future years at Cranston East, I feel that there should be more internship opportunities for all students to get a feel for what they want to pursue in life, something I did not really have a chance to do throughout my four years of high school. After high school, I want to pursue a career in medicine, either becoming a nurse practitioner or pediatrician. Cranston East will forever hold a special place in my heart. Thank you for your time and consideration. God bless.
