East Surry High School Reviews
Rating 3.81 out of 5 79 reviews
I have enjoyed my 4 years at East Surry despite the last two being very different due to covid-19. The majority of the staff and teachers are very understanding and care about every student they teach. I would like to see some more modern updates be implemented into the school and maybe have more opportunities for different types of classes be explored. Before the pandemic one of my favorite things about East Surry was just how lively it could be, being in a small town most of the students know each other and many parents even know the teachers personally which creates the lively atmosphere I've come to miss due to covid-19.
I enjoyed my years ay East Surry. I loved the small town atmosphere that this school had. It was like going to school with one big family.
I enrolled as a Sophomore, so I was anxious about starting a new high school my sophomore year. The Teachers and Administrative staff welcomed me and provided support and guidance to me. The school stressed the importance of taking advantage of obtaining college credits while still in high school. Communication on all levels, both verbal and written, was better than I had experienced before. I valued Easy Surry's learning environment which was free of bullying and allowed individualism.
I like that I attend a rural public school, where there is not a great deal of drug issues or racism. There are not a lot of cliques, and not a great deal of bullying.
I love the experience. The teachers are very helpful, friendly, and understanding. I would definitely recommend.
Very great teachers that care about you and your education. Everyone I have met at East Surry has been very nice and welcoming. The sports at East Surry are outstanding in just about every sport. If any issue comes up, the administration knows just how to handle the issue. I have had so much fun at Friday night football games. We would have themes every Friday and the whole student section would participate. I would say the school spirit at East Surry is excellent. I felt very safe at East Surry. Everyone had key cards that were necessary to get into the doors of the building. At the football games, no bookbag was allowed in order to keep everyone safe from someone sneaking in weapons of any sort. The teachers aren't just teachers at East Surry, they also are there for you if you are dealing with any personal issues they are there to help you. I have had a very great 4 years at East Surry High School, and I will miss it very much!
East Surry high school is the best place to take your kid to be college ready when he gets out as a senior. There is nothing I would change about East Surry.
East Surry to me is the best school in Surry County for academics and athletics. The teachers are not only to there to teach you but to help you out with anything you need which is fantastic.It is a great school to be apart of.
I liked the amount of support that each team or sport gets. It really boasts the attendance and moral of the players.
East Surry isn’t a huge school where you don’t know anyone but a handful of people. However it isn’t a tiny school where you know absolutely everyone. It’s the perfect size, the students are friendly and so are the faculty and staff!
i love the overall atmosphere. the teachers are very nice and friendly. the Athletics are superb and the students there are very nice.
East Surry High School is a decent high school for students to pass into after middle school but has many flaws. For one, the facility is very old (some places are literally falling apart or smell like mildew). The teachers seem slipt down the middle, with half not caring at all about their job, and the other half going the extra mile and ensuring that their students are succeeding. That being said, if you take advantage of the opportunities given, college readiness is an ease with a great number of AP classes and dual enrollment in Surry Community College classes either online or at the pilot center.
East Surry is a very close-knit school where everyone knows everyone. The teachers are caring and want to see students succeed.
My experience with East Surry was a really good one. Everyone I know from there would more than likely say the same as well. The staff are excellent, there's a big variety of classes to choose from, and everything is easy to navigate. The only thing I would say that needs improving is the structure of the school. It was built in the 60's, and that is very easy to see as you walk around the school. So overall the school is fenominal, but could use a little updating.
Love it. It was a great experience. I learned a lot. Was involved in government in school as well as clubs and sports.
Horrible staff. They will lie to your face, then lie about lying to you. Teachers don't care if you learn. They'll pass anyone just to get them out of their classes.
I like that it is like a family. The whole town of Pilot Mountain supports the school. They have an excellent sports program and have good coaches. The teachers work with you to help you understand and try to make you successful. I would like to see some better facilities like a new field house and visitor stands at the football field.
