East Brunswick High School is overall a high achieving school with special focus on academics and the arts. The staff and administration try to provide students with the best opportunities for success, with numerous clubs and programs that enhance the educational experience. The athletic programs are also very distinguished, but they can be used more to promote school spirit. EBHS has only the best, most dedicated, and most experienced teachers. However, at times the administration ostracizes itself from the students, and the environment does not always feel 100% safe.

East Brunswick High School's population of about 700 students per graduating class fosters an environment of competitive nature, pushing students to gain skills such as public speaking, effective communication, creative thinking, and problem solving. Despite all these academic benefits, the school's diversity is one of the most defining traits. Growing up in such a diverse community has taught me acceptance of other races, genders, ethnicities, and religions. Our classes have always offered challenges, each another step towards learning to handle any task or difficulty thrown at us. Because we see that our diversity is a strength, not a diverging point, friend groups stray from the typical cliches in movies, often distinguishing between "mean kids" from the "nerds" or the "jocks". Rather, we understand that different mixes of cultures and interests make us unique. Though I may not know each of the 699 other people in my grade, I know each of us is set up with a foundation to succeed.
My experience at East Brunswick high school was average. We are for sure a good school in terms of academics, but the school lacks in care for its students. There have been multiple times where the student body has had to speak out against administration, and it seemed as if the school only worked with its students to quiet them and protect its reputation instead of due to actual care. Most of the teacher's are fairly caring and nice, but the administration needs improvement. They care more about things such as dress code than real problems. In my opinion they need to better their priorities. However, the academic level is very high and I do believe the school has academically prepared me for college. I learned many skills from the AP and honors level classes at the high school. The level of those classes is very high and I know several alumni who have said ebhs classes really did help them once they reached college.
