East Rankin's English program is excellent. The junior honors English course emphasizes, or focuses on, American literature; however, vocabulary, spelling, composition, poetry memorization, and grammar are also taught. English Composition, which is a senior level course, focuses on grammar and research writing. If any student wishes to build grammar and research writing skills, then he or she should enroll in English Composition for his or her senior year. By the way, it is wrong to write comments on the internet about one's teachers or school, especially if a student has not discussed his or her issue in person with teachers or principals.

East Rankin has a pretty good elementary teacher; however, the majority high school teachers have no clue what they are talking about. The school advertises itself as a college preparatory, but the classes that have teachers that have prepared me for college are Algebra 2 and Pre-calculas and Trigonometry. Since East Rankin is a small private school, it lacks resources, such as a fully functioning high school computer lab with internet that works (so that online classes could be taken at school), a science lab that would allow chemistry experiments to be done and allow biology lab participants enough room to perform experiments with ease. Without a doubt, East Rankin has its downfalls, but it has some good sides to it. Its small class sizes have allowed me to build close relationships with some of my peers. Even though East Rankin has not prepared me for college, it small classes have made high school bearable.
Several of East Rankin Academy's high school teachers are actually excellent, especially in that they are dedicated to improving the students' learning and even social skills. Also, East Rankin is a school that focuses on academics above "resources." Technology is available when needed, as too much technology is distracting. Excessive technology can take away from the intensity of the teaching and learning process---a process that takes place in the classroom between teachers and students on a daily basis. Great school if you want to excel academically.
