The East Central School District has some of the best teachers, resources, and college readiness programs! However, East Central High School community is not very welcoming. Students aren't in a collective community. Big announcements such as graduation were not planned and communicated very well. The school is beautiful and the teachers are great! The issue is the administration, they're very rude and do not handle bullying properly. There needs to be a better sense of community!

There are so many programs to help forward a student's interest in any field! I personally am involved with the technology side of things and there are so many clubs and classes to further my education, involvement, and even get certifications.
Well, I highly recommend joining colloquium for a more indepth highschool experience that evokes hard thinking. I personally did not have a good experience with the campus admins because I have felt like they don´t care about the issues I have brought to them, like some instances of bullying and abuse. But overall, I have had many positive experiences at East Central High School. I have made many friends, good life choices, and good decisions for the future at East Central High School. I highly recommend it for the variety of experiences one can have, clubs, sports, and competitions. Despite the lack of care shown by the schools administration, I as a student do genuinely feel as though my teachers have cared about me, even with such large classes. The school has a very strong culture and pride, which I think really does bring us all together. East Central gets a thumbs up from me.
