So far I have really liked East Bladen High School. From my freshmen year to now, I have learned many things that can help me through school and life wise. I love to communicate with a lot of people too. Communicating with different people can help me by knowing how to work with people inside and outside of school. Like every other school, there are bad influences. Keeping away from the people who brings you down and who are not there to help you is a good idea. We all have to learn who are our real friends and who are not! Anyways, there are many extracurricular activities. For instance, Keyettes, FBLA, History Club, Photography Club, and many more.I am in the JROTC program. It has taught me many life skills. I believe that I have matured more ever since I joined the program. I am also in the FBLA Club, History Club, and SGA Club. Overall, I believe that East Bladen High School is a really good school. I just have three semesters left of high school and they are flying so fast!

School here is extremely boring, more so since the county board blocked most sites on our laptops. The teachers are easily divided in half, those who like their job and want to work with students, and those who work there because they are about to retire and can't be bothered. The cafeteria food is bland, we also have a distinct lack of interesting clubs and after school activities.
The best thing about East Bladen was hanging out with my friends. Most of the teachers have favorites, and the coaches are not fair. The administration kept order around school, and the cafeteria workers were nice and friendly. There are a few teachers who genuinely care about the students.
