My experience has been very good! I've maintained good grades and participated in extra curricular activities. I've been on the A, A/B Honor Roll and received Academic Excellence Awards. I enjoy socializing with my friends and attending campus activities. The teachers are very good and I've learned so much.

I had a good experience with Eastern Alamance. It is average in most areas. I was in the theater/Chorus scene and my experience here was wonderful. I love the chorus/theater teacher, and she does a fantastic job. The diversity in this aspect of the school is something that I especially enjoyed. Most of the teachers are great but I did have a teacher who was obviously inexperienced and did not seem to know what they were doing. It is clear that some teachers work harder than others do. As a student who took higher level classes I was around the "better" teachers so I can't give a well rounded assessment on the staff as a whole. Overall the school is average, but my experience there was very good. The teachers and the arts, and the diversity are the main highlights in my opinion.
Eastern Alamance High School has been an overall great experience. Some teachers were not ideal but most of my teachers acted as my own advocate and led me to be a better student. Other than the fights and numerous threats placed upon our school, I can truthfully say that I admire the school and all of its traditions. Just like any other student I have had my ups and downs but all of the issues I encountered were either a result of my own issues or things out of the schools control. The motto at our school is " Once an Eagle Always a Eagle" and I completely support that. Everyone who has graduated has been able to come back and visit teachers and support the school. Most teachers really were passionate about their subject and helped students no matter what and I could never forget that. Overall an amazing school!
