East Side Union High School District Reviews

The teachers are humorous, excellent, inspirational, bubbly, and much more! The environment is pretty decent because I can get a high-quality education from teachers who truly care and are passionate about their job. They work hard to ensure their students get a quality education so that they are prepared for college and the world.
However, the district can improve on advice for dealing with stress and suicide prevention.
The food is pretty decent, but there is not much change about it.
Music and talent should also be more encouraged because the system revolving around education in the arts is not sufficiently populated.
School activities are fun and engaging because school morale is quite high.
School counseling is pretty average, and it doesn't quite help as much.
The resources provided are sufficient enough for student success.

I currently transferred from a charter school to public and I have to say it’s been amazing. Public schools in east side are often looked down upon but are we looking down on the students or the teaching? I’d have to say people have a very biased opinion on the are- and its people it’s quite disappointing. All my current teachers have been 100x better than my past teachers from when I attended a charter. Having people with long term experience is something I completely forgot about when I entered the charter system. I really enjoy the rallies the teaching structure and preparedness. East Side Union is an amazing high school district! I will truly remember my high school experience coming here!
I am class of 2015 at Mt. Pleasant High. My high school experience was terrifying at first, but I grew accustomed to how different it was from middle school. The teachers and staff were beyond friendly and helpful. Teachers would mix in a little but of fun with our education and made it more easier for us to learn. If you needed help you can simple go to a teacher and ask for help or find a tutor really quick. The only thing I wish could’ve changed, but seems like anyone had real control over was the construction going on at our school at the time. Some areas of the school smelled like tar and made it difficult to concentrate in class. So if there were to be any further remodelation at school it would make it easier for all students that it all be done when students are not in school.
