My four years at Eastern were OK. School activities consisted of sports while clubs were left in the dust. Many wanted to see these clubs grow and wanted to see a stronger culture. Actions to do this were small and didn't make a difference. There is definitely a defined social pyramid and everyone knows where they stand. The school as a whole recognized this problem constantly, but again nothing changed while I was there.

The teachers are all super friendly and there are great classes. The system for scheduling students' classes is extremely inefficient. Every year my schedule was full of classes that gave me none of the credits I needed and weren't what I had chosen; it was extremely frustrating to sort out every year. Most students had the same issues too.

This school has such a friendly environment with great staff. Sports is a really big thing, so is school spirit. Great well taken care of building and a very large variety of food. I went to both Forest hills Northern and Eastern and prefer Eastern. Eastern also provide a very safe environment, all outside doors are locked. Visitors need to enter through office. The school is very clean, bathrooms are well taken care of and hallways are also well taken care of. Overall I am so grateful to have the privilege to attend Forest Hills Eastern.
Attending Eastern was a great experience overall. I was heavily involved in the music program while I attended and there was a healthy music community at that time. The theater program also always had lots of willing participants.

The school is large and has the whole gambit of necessary sports facilities, save for a pool. Being a little further out in the country it is also a quiet area for a school to be.

My only criticisms would be that the club scene was not all that active when I was there. After school activities were mostly limited to sports or theater. The school was also not all that diverse when I attended. It has been about a decade since I was there though, so who knows how this has changed.

My time there was safe and solid. My education e gave me the necessary foundation for attending college and being ready for college - level academics.
