With a heart of a senior I can truly say Eastern High is an incredible school. The teachers and faculty are relentless at making sure students are where they are suppose to be and on time to class. One special factor that is noticeable about Eastern is its diversity. I have never attended a school with such a wide gamut of cultures, religion, and languages. But that's Eastern's diversity, the students are on
another dimension of astoundingness. I love their passion for learning and even more their willingness to helping others (especially students that are bilingual and are still in the progress of learning and comprehending English). Chiefly and above all, the most tender quality of Eastern High School to me, is its unique environment altogether. From its teachers to students; its faculty to administrators, its library and cafeteria. Eastern is a welcoming community I'm not sure I'll ever forget.

The diversity and the atmosphere is amazing. I believe that the staff tries their best with the resources that are available to them. I'll never forget the small things Eastern did for their students such as, bringing plays to the school and delivering fresh fruit to classes. However, I feel like there was a bigger focus on the students in or on track to be in the I.B program than everyone else. I would like to see this issue fixed so that every student, no matter their curriculum can work towards rewarding goals and opportunities.
I like Eastern High School because of diversity that makes it unique. Eastern High School is excellent in preparing students for college and life after college.

When I came to Eastern, I was immigrant, but they tried to motivate me by learning other cultures through diversity. Eastern has a good teachers and as well as counsellors as they make sure their students are able to gain skills and opened to graduation; Eastern is a favorable to attend even for an introverted peoples.
