East Grand Rapids Public Schools Reviews

East Grand Rapids is generally a really good school. It is a perfect little community with its own tiny version of downtown. Jersey Junction is a common hotspot(the local ice cream place), and the community puts on a lot of events for people to come together and become good neighbors. The parent involvement in the school is through the roof, and this contributes to the surplus of resources given t the school and its students. It has amazing opportunities that are available to everyone and is extremely safe.

There are downsides though.

Because so many of the East kids live in sort of bubble, they generally feel entitled to everything coming to them. The nature of many East kids revolves around the excess of money their parents have, (which in itself isn't a bad thing but the kids abuse it), and there is an extreme drug culture in East.

East Grand Rapids High School not only provides the resources and staff necessary for college readiness, but also cultivates a student environment filled with positivity, acceptance, and encouragement. The biggest advantage of attending East Grand Rapids High School is the community which supports healthy competition, respect, and reaching above and beyond. The student body and staff are both kind as well as supportive in helping each other achieve their highest potential.
East Grand Rapids Public Schools has given me quite possibly the best high school experience I could have asked for or wanted. Although I have not yet gone to college, I feel that this school has prepared me and taught me how to be a college ready student. The teachers are fantastic, they are very hands on and not only want you to succeed in school but also in life. The faculty wants to get to know you and wants to be involved. The school however does lack in diversity and if I could change one thing about it, it would be that. All in all, East Grand Rapids Public Schools is truly the best place to learn and be edcuated.
