East Haven School District Reviews

Since I was in first grade, I attended school in East Haven. I don’t remember much from the early days, but high school is still very fresh in my mind having graduated just two years ago. There are nursing classes that can help students get CNA certified by the time they are seniors, which means they can graduate with a CNA certification AND already have a job thanks to the great connections the CNA teacher has. EHHS also has forensic science and criminal justice classes which can help students decide if they’d like to go into those fields, plus the teacher is absolutely wonderful and very helpful with helping students decide what to do and where to go after high school of they decide to pursue a career in those fields. Not to mention, a new program with the EHPD is around where students can intern with the department and actually get points towards their police test if they decide to go into policing in East Haven after high school!

As long as you make the best of your school experience, you will do well. I have found many school districts to be much worse than this one. This district is one that is very connected. We care about each other and have each other's backs. East Haven is a small town so you are sure to see someone while you are at the grocery store. And it is great.
There's very few people who care about the education of the students in this district. Most of the teachers do not want to make the effort to get to the students and help them find a way that makes learning interesting. On top of that multiple programs in the arts have been cut from the budget, keeping students from having a creative outline. My experience going to the schools in this town was ridiculous. No teacher cared about wanting me to genuinely learning and building up skills. They cared about making sure I just barely past a test so they didn't have to see me again next year.
