Overall, my experience at East Grand Rapids High School has been great. It is a small, yet incredible place to learn! The teachers are great and the community is very tight knit and supportive. There is minimal diversity between students as well as staff. Overall, great school.

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.
EGR is a great place for high achieving students- mostly excellent teachers, great athletics, and lots of opportunities. However, if you don't fit the traditional mold of what an "EGR student" should be, then it can be harder. There is not a ton of help for students who are struggling and the culture can be competitive. The district has only 1 middle school so for the most part all of the kids have known each other for a long time which can be frustrating. It's right in Gaslight village and has off campus lunch every day for all 4 years which is great but not all of the kids are nice.
