East Lansing is one of, if not the top high schools that bear diversity, resources, great staff, a prodigious sports program, wonderful STEAM courses, and charming culture. This academy conveys a very advantageous and desirable environment for young modest students to develop adequate traits and charisma to propel the future. East Lansing High School also gives students a family to lean on when they can't quite figure things out. Overall, East Lansing High is a very desirable institute of education leaving other schools lacking in comparison.
East Lansing High School is a lovely school. The ambiance is beautiful, and there is a lot of diversity, which makes the students feel comfortable. The sports are fantastic here, and we have a lot of amazing athletes that go off to D1, D2 schools! We have plenty of security guards that make sure the students are safe, and they even give out free snacks! I believe East Lansing High School is the best high school to go to in the state of Michigan.
I believe ELHS is a great school with lots of resources and opportunities. Student culture and involvement is incredible (music programs, sports event, pep rallies, clubs, etc). At East Lansing, I’ve gotten to explore a wide range of different classes, ranging from semester long art classes to AP classes. I love the building, while it is almost always clean, safe, and a great environment for students to learn. I’ve joined so many new clubs, found new interests in different topics. The student body is very diverse and I get to meet new people with different backgrounds every single day. East Lansing is the place to be! Go Trojans!
