I have attended East Providence High School for the past four years. Since then, the school building was knocked down and a brand new was built. The new building in wonderful and is state of the art. It is a pretty good environment for learning and creating life-long friendships.
The staff at East Providence High School do an outstanding job at creating a welcoming environment for students of all races, genders and social standings. I am currently spending my senior year in the new and dramatically improved high school which is very organized, state of the art and safe. The student body as a whole are very supportive and my graduating class so far has been extremely helpful financially within doing fundraisers, selling (school-related) merchandise, purchasing event tickets and many more things. The deans strongly encourage great attendance and good grades. Unfortunately though, I wish they emphasized the importance of mental health more than they do. It seems that the school district values academic achievement over the well-being of their students.
Teachers offer opportunities for students in certain interests of fields. Empathetic and equitable teachers. Building structure is falling apart. Crowded building. Unlikeable students.
All of the teachers care about their students and they help us every step of the way to make sure that we feel confident in the work that we are producing in their classes.
I can't wait for the new school to be built! I keep up with the face book videos and tours but once it is done it will be a great change.
It's high school, so it's never going to be perfect. The AP/ Honors track is wonderful, with amazing teachers who actually care to see you succeed. The same can't be said for the L2 and L3 classes. We have a lot of great extracurriculars and arts activities. My teachers have for the most part done a great job of helping us transition to online learning.
There is so much diversity in the school, and the Career and Tech Program is phenomenal. Although a lot of the teachers are not the best, excluding some of the best teachers I have met in my life. You will either have a teacher you love or hate, I have not really found a teacher that is so much in between the scale. The school does appreciate the arts and athletics equally which is appreciated and offers an extremely large amount of classes within a huge range of interests.
I had a great experience at East Providence high school until COVID hit. I am a Senior now and I feel that our year has been ruined. I am running for class President so that I can work with the school to find ways to make this year memorable. I have enjoyed the school spirit that East Providence has and I have formed great relationships with my teachers and friends. I am happy to attend such a diverse school. I also have enjoyed my experience working with special needs students in the life skills program. It has been life changing for me.
I would say overall my experience was an average experience. I am glad to see the new school being built, and hopefully a lot of my experiences being in an older building, such as classrooms falling apart and things just not being up to date, new students and staff won't have the same issues.
Most teachers that have worked at this school give students flexibility and empathy, which may be needed. The physical building is starting to collapse. Most deans and students attending this high school, however, are a problem. The overall experience is somewhat enjoyable, and students can be given multiple opportunities.
I liked some teachers, but the vast majority of teachers are stubborn and stuck in their ways, not listening to the feedback and cries for help from their students. Administration also functions like a corrupt system, putting down young teachers with great ideas, and glorifying older teachers that hate teaching and only do it for the job security.
I enjoy all of the staff members and teachers. They are all down to earth, easy to talk to, and understanding. The facility itself isn't great right now, but they are working on building a new school for future students. Overall, the school has taught me a lot both academically and personally.
There are always ups and downs of high school, but at EP you have a whole team to back you up. Plus, our SRO officers are the best!!! The teachers will always help you, though sometimes you have to be persistent. However, the food isn't the best, but it's alright. Overall, the experience of my high school career has been fantastic!
The building is falling apart and a quarter of the staff doesn’t seem to even care about the students or teaching in general. However the majority of the teaching staff is amazing and try their absolute hardest. They are the main upside of the school.
East providence high school has been some of the happiest times of my life. It has help me to discover my love for computer science.
Some things that I would like to see changed at East Providence High School are the way teachers interact and teach kids. I have had some amazing teachers that have done so much to help me. However, I have had many teachers that do not help at all. They make it very obvious that they do not really care whether or not their students are understanding the material or need help. The way that they grade things is very unfair for the student and will change their overall grade in a bad way whether it is a good grade or a bad grade on an assignment. This does not go for all teachers, just certain ones. The students in the school are typical high school students. They are not that bad, but also not the best. Overall, the school is not too bad, it is just certain aspects that should be changed for the students.
My overall experience of high school is like no other. I met some great people and learned a lot of great life lessons wouldn't change anything about it.
