I absolutely loved the teachers, advanced classes, environment, clubs and theatre department. The teachers are phenomenal and prepare you for college so well. The extracurricular activities are great as well, plenty of clubs to choose from. The theatre department is beyond comparable. They produce professional level shows! I would like to see minor changes in the organization of administration and a handful of school rules that don’t seem relevant or realistic.

East Lake High School was an average high school. The high school provided students with mostly nice teachers. Even though there were nice and smart teachers, I feel like the education was not that great. The teachers and the board of the school did not go out of their way to improve the education in all subjects. I felt like it was mostly just standard testing and nothing more. I was hoping the information would be more useful for college. East Lake High School needs less standard testing from the state and county, and needs to focus on improving its educating. Perhaps providing free tutoring opportunities for the students would make a difference.
All of the higher level teachers are awesome at connecting with students and really drilling in concepts instead of brushing over the material. The only complaint I would have is the lack of guidance for higher ranked students as most of the focus is on the lower level students. Also, I feel the school could also guide seniors better into applying for scholarships and figuring out what colleges they would consider. This might be due to the fact many students know where they want to go already because of Bright Future and Florida Prepaid Scholarships limiting them to FL schools so they pick FSU, UF, FAU, FGCU, UCF, etc. But for others who are looking out of state not much advice is shared.
