The teachers and staff are outstanding and make sure each student gets a thorough learning experience. Everyone strives to prepare the students for college or even future jobs by taking their own knowledge in a certain career path and teaching it to the students. Bullying is definitely not an issue at East Wilkes High, it is overall a great and caring environment!

East Wilkes High School has a great environment where students are cared for and challenged. The area of college preparedness could be improved but for the location, the school does a great job of preparing students for the work force.
Although this was the high school I graduated from, it sucked. The majority of the teachers were lazy and did not seem to care about teaching students. The school focused mainly on sports rather than more important things. Some teachers and administration were not helpful at all with problems.
