East Lansing School District Reviews

17 reviews
All Categories
The majority of the teachers in attendance at East Lansing High school are passionate about the subject which they are teaching and are willing to work with struggling students during lunches and after school to ensure that they understand the material. Unfortunately, a handful of teachers are not so hard working and make classes more difficult than is necessary. Both the athletic programs as well as clubs and organizations are plentiful and mostly well organized. The building itself is clean and well-kept. One of the things severely lacking at East Lansing High School is any mental health aid or awareness organization existing in the school. In my opinion, it is essential to provide high school students with a way to educate themselves on mental health and to offer services to those who may be suffering mentally.

I like East Lansing because of how supportive some of the students are ! East Lansing has really been involved with supporting the students; for example they let students write nice inspirational comments on the windows. There are a lot of great supports groups such as Student for Gender Equality and LGBTQ+ as well. One thing i would like to see change is some of the comments students make with out staff saying anything about it. Also the locker comments can be quite crowded because people just stand there, it would be really nice to be able to make it to my locker more easily.
I had an overall acceptable experience. Staff treated people fairly. Some teachers were by far the best with communication & kindness. The students that I had came across in my four year at EL differed from the high & tight preps to the low & chill people (which was my crowd). I would definitely recommend this school district to families & friends across the state. It's highly reputable!
