My experience with East saint Louis senior high school is going perfect! The main thing I love about my school is that it's college readiness, we have so many opportunities for college. We go on college trips. I was in a avid class which is college readiness it focuses on organization and getting prepared for college. The one thing that I would have to change about my school is mainly the support system from our principal.

My experience at East Saint Louis SH can be described as rather difficult and exciting. On the one hand, I would say it was rather difficult attending this school because of some intimidating reasons while growing up and some scholastic changes also. On the other hand, I would say that it was exiting also because of some academic achievements, some trips I took, and some extracurriculars they offer. Something that I really like about the school is a program they offer, called GEAR UP, that I really find to be inspirational and fun, while still preparing you for the next level. If I could change at least one aspect about my school, it would most likely be how we are viewed and how we represent ourselves as a whole.
I’m a proud Senior Of Class 2019. Every since i have been with district 189 it has been nothing but the best. From Losing Students To Student Losing Their Parent I Have Came With Ideas As To Show The Student We Support Them We Are Just Like Family Now. Getting help from the administration team to help me go forth with my idea. Every Since I Have Been There It’s Been Nothing But Great Things. Teachers staying til 7pm to help with the homework bring grade up. From Having Ms.Morris Getting Back To Be Our Sponsor, We Have Some Of The Supportive People. East St. Louis Senior High Will Always Be My Number 1.
