Eastern High School offers an overwhelmingly vast number of opportunities for students of all aspiring fields--most prominently computer scientists and performers of the arts. It is one of the only public schools in JCPS to have a vast selection of AP classes, including: AP Physics 1 & 2, Calculus BC, Computer Science, US Government & Politics, Music Theory, Photography, and much more. Eastern High School sports coaches are wholesomely dedicated to their competitive environment, making this school's teams some of the best in Jefferson County. Whether it be in the chemistry classroom or on the soccer field, Eastern High School expresses a rich diversity of students; Caucasians, Middle-Easterners, Arabs, African Americans, and Indian Americans are the most representative groups, however there is a fair lack of Eastern Asian diversity. The counselors at Eastern High School are about average, as they do just barely enough to ensure college readiness--we are mostly on our own, however.

I enjoyed my time during my attendance of Eastern High School. The teachers care a lot about the students, and they challenge everybody regardless of academic level, catering to everybody's own strengths. There are a lot of activities and clubs at Eastern, especially ones related with technology, fine arts, and sports. There is a fair amount of school spirit across the school, and its collection of students with diverse backgrounds helps prepare students for the real world. My only complaints are that the food is of extremely low quality, and the bathrooms are often vandalized and defaced by students.
Eastern High School is a very large school, but they offer some amazing electives and AP classes, there is also a variety of different clubs and sports teams for students to join. There is something for everyone! I have loved attending Eastern, and would highly recommend it to all!
