Over the course of four years, East Orange school district have progressed. My experience in freshmen year with this school district was unfair. I never saw or heard the school district host programs or trips for the students. But as time went on, changes happened, The Superintendent, Dr West started making visits to schools, making sure the voices of the students are heard and also their needs are meet. School programs are held for students in other for them to advance in particular school courses that will better their education. Students get the chance to meet with the Superintendent and discuss programs that have been held and how they can improve the schools.

The East Orange school district is at best an average school district. I went to STEM Academy which is supposed to be the best school in East Orange. The teachers are very good and the students are intelligent; however, the school lacks the resources the students and teachers need. The internet connection is terrible, there’s barely any computers for the students to use, and students are limited to printing two pages a day. The school lacks heating and cooling. The lunchroom is in the basement and the food is terrible. Last but not least, the administration is terrible, they don’t listen to student’ suggestions .
I like East Orange School District in the aspect of this being my hometown and the only place I’ve been to school. I’ve always been in the best schools in East Orange from Whitney E. Houston Academy and Johnnie L. Cochran Academy then transitioning to East Orange STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering & Math) Academy for middle and high school. Along the way I’ve had amazing support from majority of my teachers, administrators and my amazing family. They’re always encouraging me to be the best that I can no matter what obstacles I face. I do admit that we need better educators and curriculum. Our sports teams need way more practice because there is no reason our football team should be ranked 171 in the state. Even though the college and career readiness is great at my school we can use some improvements like more scholarship awareness opportunities. We also need our cities taxes to go more towards our education system.
