East Lake High School Reviews

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.

Honestly, I didn’t really like East Lake that much but I’m not going to give it a poor score because it is not a bad school! I like the school spirit the students! They go all out and they just want to represent the school that’ll most likely beat you. For the future students I believe that they should add JROTC and more relevant classes that have to deal with the major you want to accomplish in college.
Having been transferred to East Lake in the middle of my Freshman year something that stood out to me is how large the school population is. Hallways are always packed between periods, it was a bit overwhelming coming from a smaller school. Academically, East Lake performs well, there are teachers that are passionate about teaching here, as well as a good AP program and a variety of electives. The Engineering program is one of East Lake's highlights. They also put a lot of passion into their sports programs. Socially, is where I think East Lake falls short, the students aren't exactly welcoming and open-minded, school counselors are always busy so there isn't room to form a relationship with them. Administration seems disorganized, especially this year, transportation is a problem as well(buses had a pattern of not showing up). Nothing is really done about the vape addictions either. Overall its not the worst school, if you focus on the positives you can make the best out of it.
