East Rutherford High School Reviews

For two generations my entire family has attended East Rutherford High. For us it is similar to a family tradition or right of passage. Being the shortest, in height, out of my family, I was the most intimidated by becoming a freshmen. However, after entering the doors it felt like home. The teachers had a warm welcoming aura about them and a strong bond that forms within the first few weeks of classes. Many of the teachers have an outstanding perspective on teaching their students despite all of their learning styles and individualism. At East High there are many educational opportunities outside the classroom. For students who struggled in certain subjects and studies, tutoring and even online resources were given to aide students in their classroom and at home. I myself took advantage of these options at times when needed and found it very beneficial for me and my peers. I connected and befriended many of my peers through East Rutherford High and made memories I won’t ever forget.

My overall experience at East Rutherford High School was incredible. It was the best four years of my life. Throughout my years of high school, I was able to gain close relationships with the teachers and staff. Still as of today I keep in touch with them and visit them. I was able to get into many prestigious clubs, like National Honor Society, National Technical Honor Society and BETA Club. I received support, aid, and assistants when I needed. All the teachers are amazing and great at their jobs. I believe there is nothing East Rutherford High School has to change.
I love East Rutherford High School. It's a friendly environment. It's small, everyone knows everyone. Usually there's not a lot of drama. There's tons of clubs and groups for students to participate in. Also the teachers are very welcoming and nice and there's the opportunity to have a challenging course load to prepare yourself for college. Sports here have a tradition of winning and being very well respected across the state.
