Hands-on experience provide improvement for every student, the involvement of the AP teachers is very appreciated. The school is interactive, and communicative but there are a few downsides, such as some of the administrators leaving little room for disagreement and explanation. Flextime, where the students go online to sign up for a class that you need extra time in, is a time for student-teacher interaction, but it is heavily regulated to where the students no longer find Flextime useful. There are many upsides to East Ridge High School, the teachers are very organized and interactive.

I have had some of the most excellent teachers in my life at East Ridge, and I was taught a lot of useful information, both for school and for life. I was lucky enough to be a part of their excellent theatre program for four years and found many friends and confidants through it, as well as my college major. When morale is high, the student body rises to the occasion; everyone gets involved. However, East Ridge is also known for its inability to communicate. This lack of conversation leads to a lot of problems between parents, teachers, and administrators. Getting in contact with someone is nearly impossible, and communication is poor. You often get the feeling that even if you ask for something regularly, there is no way it will happen. Overall, my high school experience has been about a B-. There are things I hope will be improved upon after I leave, but I cannot be entirely sure that they will.
My name is Dwanye Maduro. I moved to Clermont, Florida from the U.S. Virgin Islands . East Ridge is a diverse school with students from all over the world. It allowed me to fit in and not feel like an outsider. I was even able to find other Virgin Islanders.I even went back to the Virgin Islands and spoke to students about my journey by a non profit organization and how it had affected my life. A few students came to East Ridge after the terrible hurricanes and stated that they attended because of hearing from me at the event. If there was one thing that I would like to see changed is the attention to other sporting activities , other than basketball and football. I hope the administration find a way to encourage better school involvement and generate more revenue/ money into other sports. The experience has helped me to grow as a person and a student. East Ridge is excellent will always be special to me.
