East Aurora is somewhat of a "bubble" community, but the education system is great. Teachers are always available for extra help, and encourage it. The class sizes are small, which allows students to have strong connections with the teachers. Personally, I know if I ever had any problems I could trust any of my teachers to truly help me. The community is very positive, and there is a multitude of activities to get involved with. Sports are equally as popular as participating in the winter musical, and clubs being in the morning allow one to be in many extra curricular activities. Physically the school is above ideal, with modern updates constantly being added, and a modern exterior.

East Aurora High School has given me one of the best educations possible. The sports and other clubs that were offered and that I personally participated in gave me an experience that will never be forgotten. Another exclusive part of the high school was the acceptance between the students and the environment that was created. Students were able to be themselves and not have to worry about judgement from fellow peers, the musicals were greeted with warmth and others took notice of the talent and hard work that went into each and every production. My experience at East Aurora is one I will keep with me for life, and the education that was given to me is one of a kind. I had always thought that high school was some scary place that would beat you up and spit you back out, but East Aurora taught me that high school was different. It was a place to find out who you are, and to be yourself. High school was worth every moment.
East Aurora High School is an amazing school. Passionate teachers engaging students, a wide variety of classes giving students opportunities to take preferred classes stand out in its education system. Sports, clubs, musical, and other activities are filled with friendly and accepting participants, as well as dedicated and skilled athletes. As a STEM student, I both loved and hated classes but feel that they all helped me become well prepared for college and figure out subjects I like and dislike.
