East Mecklenburg High School was the perfect fit for me because of the diversity, dedication, and the International Baccalaureate program offered by the school. The principal is very engaged, and the students and staff always show the up most support for the arts, sciences, academics, and sports. I graduated with my International Baccalaureate diploma, and because of my critical thinking skills were properly equipped, college was a breeze for me. East Meck is definitely the proper school for your child if you are looking for a school that offers challenging academics, a welcoming community, fun and engaging extra-curricular activities, and so much more. GO EAGLES!
Review East Mecklenburg High School
East Mecklenburg high school was a good experience. It was something I will never forget. As I look back on my high school experience I realize all the valuable things I learned from east Meck. Most importantly I learned how to be a better person. As a varsity basketball east Meck eagle I had a leadership role but mid way through the season I let my team down. That experience was something I will never want to experience again. It made me a better person and humbled me. I started to get to know knew people, focused a lot more on school and even got more involved around school. When going into east Meck expect a family and some strong school spirit. It's the best high school around!
I enjoyed my high school years at East Mecklenburg High School. When I attended the grade levels were 10th-12th. I was what you called "bused in" the school district, this opened up a diverse learning setting and experience for me and my siblings. It was a great experience that allowed me to build friendships that have lasted for over thirty years. There is a community of my graduating class on Facebook that I still keep in touch with. From my experience, I would not change a thing but for today's youth, the only thing I would change is integrating 9th graders to high school. I think they would have a much better first year experience (mature wise) if they were a little older.
