I love that it is a small school and everyone has the opportunity of knowing everyone else. Most of the students are very close with each other and with the staff. Since the school is smaller, students have a better chance of getting to know their teachers better and getting one on one help if needed!

I loved East Mont High! From the loving and accepting people to the small classes, I would not have changed anything. I was very blessed to attend this high school. Although some people may prefer a larger school, I did not. I graduated with a class of about 60 students and we were one of the closest classes the went through that high school. I believe the only two things I would change about this school would have to be the amount of participation in sports and the available classes. Seeing as it is a very small school though, I can see why they are lacking in both of these areas. I would honestly recommend this school to anyone, it is a place that is able to come together and there is rarely someone you see that you do not already know.
It's a great community, full of opportunities and family. It is a safe place for students with different mindsets and qualities, it has many different aspects for different personalities. This school is small enough to get one on one help but big enough to keep things interesting and fresh. Overall this school is an amazing place to let your kid attend, you won't regret it.
