The teachers at EPCHS are great. They really do care about your future. I liked how many upper-level and dual credit courses there were. The morale was good, and we had a lot of good curricular activities. The sports programs, however were not the best. Not only was EPCHS in a losing record for almost every sport, but the coaching ability was not typically there. Players were usually chosen based on politics rather than actual talent or abilities. Otherwise EPCHS is a great school with some great teachers and opportunities. The academics were always on or above average.

My overall experience at East Peoria High School was great as a student. The teachers, faculty, and staff have done a great job of helping students succeed through their years of high school. There is also an organization called "Moms Who Care" that helps provide essential needs for low-income students who otherwise may not have access to personal and school supplies. One thing that could be changed would be the respect towards teachers and the overall behavior and demeanor of students. I wish more of the students would be more appreciative of being able to have an education. For there are many other students who don't have the opportunity or funds to get an education. I have truly enjoyed all of the memories made at this high that will last a lifetime
The teachers are awesome! They care so much and are so invested in getting to know the students as an individual, as well making sure each student gets the best learning experience.
