East Montgomery's population of students is very diverse. Several students are involved in school sports, clubs, or other activities supporting and showing school spirit. Most of the staff is wonderful at supporting and guiding students to success. The only concern is that there is a new principal every year. The school has overall done an amazing job of supporting students from the low-income community and has helped them reach heights they never thought were possible!

I am currently a senior at East Montgomery High School. My experience has been great, I have good resources, such as teachers, guidance counselors, and education. though, since I have been freshmen the principles always end up changing, which I have had four different principles over the four years I have been here at East Montgomery High School. The best part of this school is the club Destination Imagination in which, compete regionally. My team place first placed my junior year, but the thing I would change would be the support of the school because we get no funds, but we always find a way to fundraise money. Personally, the diversity at East Montgomery is very mixed from Hispanic, African Americans, and Caucasians. In my opinion, I want the student's point of views to matter more to the administration because our points of view often are ignored. Nonetheless, all the other aspects, such as sports, parent involvement, safety, academics, and others are great.
East Montgomery High School is a great school to attend. Although there can be several improvements to the school, my overall experience at this school has been one to remember. I was exposed to several different cultures through out the school. I feel like our school is very diverse. Also I am interested in the theater program at school. This allows me to show a different side of myself and allow me to express myself without using words.
