All the teachers who supervise the club do just that: supervise. They mostly let the members lead so that the clubs are really student-oriented. The students recruit their fellow friends and classmates and they organize student events themselves.

Fundraising through food is a popular option for clubs and works really well! Those who are not in the club can find out more about it while also helping the club by purchasing a tasty treat.

The sizes of the clubs range from maybe 20 to well over 70. There are science clubs, math clubs, service clubs, and even foreign language clubs.

A wide variety of sports is also offered, including rock climbing and lacrosse. Many sports are no cut for at least the freshmen, encouraging more participation in sports without the stress of worrying about not making the team.

However, some of the more exclusive clubs who have GPA and Teacher Recommendation requirements can have high expectations about participation and attendance. The expectations correspond with the type of club, such as Student Council or Nation Honor Society, but they way they are enforced can be intimidating and can be seen by members as a way to scare them into going to meetings. That's not to say those clubs are bad or that fun is discouraged, but it might be something to improve upon. Most clubs and extracurricular activities are much more relaxed and are a great way to meet new friends from different grades.
Review East High School
All teachers want their students to succeed and learn in the best way possible. Most of the teachers are well-liked by their students with at least a few teachers being very favored in all of the subjects, whether Math or Art or Computer Science. Some students have complained of teachers not actually teaching or how unfair they can be. For the most part, teachers welcome students to ask questions during class as well as outside of class. Many are quick to respond to email and almost all of them have utilized technology, such as sending assignments through Google Drive or having students share Google Documents instead of have them print their assignment. The implementation of Google Drive is a good way for students to save time, get used to new technological programs, and turn things in on time.
When I was in high school, the administrations influence varied depending on the topic. For example, there was a fairly strict dress code (no short skirts, tank tops had to have two finger width straps, stomach and boxers cannot show, etc.) which they enforced, the electronic policy (phones and ipods) was also fairly strict but varied from teacher to teacher. Unfortunately, the bullying policy four-six years ago was lacking. I knew of many people, including my sister, who was bullied. I tried to put a stop to it along with my family. In that area the administration needs to crack down and be more serious about ending bullying the best they can.
