Easton Area School District Reviews

What I liked about Easton, was the fact that they cared about the higher level education. When a teacher was lost in the AP courses, they would pull up the next best teacher from the Honors class. That ensures that the smartest stay smart. How is that fair to the others? Why should the students trying to better themselves to earn their position in the AP classes, lose their best teacher to the higher level class? Why do they AP students get summer work, and mandatory science projects and the below basic students never get any homework? Now they took away the 5 different levels for students and brought it down to 2. So all of the AP students have to slow down their learning for the CP kids that were brought into their classes. None of this is making any sense to me. Do not slow down the kids in the higher classes, speed up the kids in the basic classes!

This school is wonderful! I've lived in Easton all my life and having these people (teachers, students, etc) are great to be around! School life in interesting, and the faculty is wonderful! There's a lot of diversity here, and I applaud that we teach 6 languages. The block scheduling can be confusing sometimes, but rewarding. I don't feel like we learn enough in such a small spam of a semester, but it all depends on the type of student and how passionate you are in a subject. Overall, the school was a great experience and I hope that the incoming students can overlook all the flaws and become involved in school activities.
