I loved the teachers and the academic experience! I had fabulous teachers who were really interested in their students. I wish that more students had participated in spirit week and other events. Socially, it was challenging to make connections if a student is not involved in sports. Personally, I wish there was more of an interest in clubs and other activities that do not involve sports.

East Providence high school is an average school. It isn't terrible but it also isn't the best experience. They do offer many higher-level classes for kids that want that college experience. The overall diversity of the school is very good. Many teachers care about their students and want to see them succeed. However, a new building is definitely needed with the school literally falling apart. I feel there isn't really anything rewarding students doing good and succeeding in that school. They tend to focus more on the attention of the kids that aren't doing as well, which is unfair. I wouldn't say it's the worst school but there are definitely many areas of improvement.
My overall experience was decent. Although the building and resources available to me were not to my advantage. The building was falling apart, the hallways were leaking, the wifi connection didn't work, computers were damaged, heating systems are not efficient, and there was no cooling systems. Some days, I would be trying to learn in a 89 degree class room or during the winter time I would wear multiple layers in 30 degree weather. I did try to make the best of it, my being a part of the band, student council, class committee, and morning announcements. I enjoyed it because I worked to make a difference by becoming class president and school secretary. They offered what seemed like a nice diversity of classes, from honors, dual enrollment, to AP classes. When I came to college I learned that my school did offer as much as others and they had personal laptops or more sports than I had.
