My experience with East saint Louis senior high school is going perfect! The main thing I love about my school is that it’s staffs try their hardest to get us to where we would wanna be in life. East St. Louis senior high school give us students many opportunities for many different colleges. Our cohorts love taking students to college trips, and have other colleges come down to our school to talk to us as well. The teachers and student are so open and welcoming its just like home to me. I also like the way our teacher collaborated to come up with lessons so that all the student would be on the same page as far as learning new thing and no one was left behind. If I had to change the way East St. Louis senior high school run, I would change on how strict the uniforms, self phones, and web access policies are. Besides that I love my school!

I love the fact that we have such encouraging teachers and staff. I could never see our school without the wonderful staff members we have. I like how diverse our school is. Great schools cannot exist without students. After school programs, whether school-wide or targeted at specific student populations, create learning opportunities for students.
I’m my experience as a student at East St Louis Senior High School it has been really good. From teacher, students, counselors, and more everything has been great. You have many learning opportunities that could help you further down in life. I recommend this School for anyone that just moving in or anything in that aspect.
