I really enjoy going to East Surry High School. We have amazing staff and teachers who will take their time to help you and get you on the right track. You know that they all want you to succeed and you just feel very welcomed there.
This school is full of incompetent people. They do not know how to handle mental illnesses among their student body, and they also target students, especially students of color. This school also hires despicable substitutes, many of whom tell students they’ll go to jail? Overall, this school is just not the place for you if you aren’t white and in the middle class.
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 love the experience. The teachers are very helpful, friendly, and understanding. I would definitely recommend.
East Surry was a very interesting experience for me. There were a lot of things I loved about it, and other things I found annoying. I thought the teachers were awesome with most of them connecting with their students on a personal level, and with the class sizes being relatively small I got a close connection with most of my classmates. The only real thing it's lacking is options for extra curricular activities outside of the normal high school sports.
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.
I liked the amount of support that each team or sport gets. It really boasts the attendance and moral of the players.
I like the options they have for electives, but wish they would concentrate more on career choices. I think it would be a good idea to create a shadow in program of some type.
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 is a very close-knit school where everyone knows everyone. The teachers are caring and want to see students succeed.
I went to East Surry for my entire High School career and learned almost nothing, the teacher are lazy, rude, and constantly cover their students in work that feel impossible to get finished. Simply put, I feel like I would have gotten more out of life if i didn't attend East Surry.
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.
