DeKalb County Eastern Community School District Reviews

Nearly all of the teachers are dedicated to making sure you understand the material given. Some teachers will offer personal help if there is a misunderstanding, and the content is not making sense. The schools are small, but that allows for a better teacher/counselor and student ratio. Lunches are not always the greatest, but snacks are offered if the main dish is not filling enough. Students should have no problems at all in the Dekalb County Eastern Community Schol District. They should focus on their education and not the basic drama that comes with public schooling if they want to have a smooth school experience.

What I liked the most about Dekalb Eastern School District is the teachers and staff. They all seemed to care about not only about teaching the students but also the student's safety. The school seems to be on top of implementing new techniques and new technology. Each student is given a Chrome Book to use throughout the school year. The school also uses Smart Boards as a tool for the teachers to convey important information regarding their respected subjects. Students are responsible for their Chrome Books as well as submitting their assignments by their deadlines. The school also has a resource officer that is a county deputy officer that is there for not only the students' safety, but for all school staff.
Dekalb County Eastern Community School District has an excellent learning environment for its students. Teachers and educators are hands-on with students, providing them with the best education they possibly can
