At Eastern York High School there are many great things that have impacted my learning experience. Some of the best things about the school are the teachers involvement with the students' education, the students' preparedness for further education and the opportunities that are provided to help the students succeed. Some of the things that could be changed is the administrators' watch over the teachers, their lack of ability to change and fix problems and the way they handle stressful situations. Overall Eastern York is a high academic establishment and in general a good school for students to attend.

The best thing about EYHS is the community. This is because of teachers who treat the students like family and will go above and beyond to help any student who is having difficulty who is also willing to do the work. Switching schools can be a horrifying thing but the easygoing an open nature of the students made this transition a breeze and made me glad for the change. Everyone in all of my classes are all just wonderful and friendly people, the culture that the students have built is that if you are in our class we are going to accept you and be your friend. What needs to change is the principle Timothy Mitzel, repeatedly he has talked a big game about how rules and new policies need to be followed, then he just doesn't follow through. Since I have never had disciplinary actions taken against me, these big announcements that he makes are the only times I have any interaction with his authority, and when he doesn't follow through on what he says, he and authority just become a joke.
My two favorite classes were calculus and physics, both had outstanding teachers who help shape my passion for science. The AP classes are highly recommended, because being in the general class felt more like a much lower level education and too slow a pace. Being a small school, Eastern doesn't have much to offer. Unfortunately their art courses continue to diminish and the school has low funding. I do like that they taught me personal finance and the metal shop was my favorite place to hang out and pick up new skills. It's a majority white school, which can unfortunately cause some conflicting diversity issues between the students. Security is minimal, however in recent years they have been taking threats very seriously. There are only two or three people in the building who can help with college searching, so that was done mostly on my own. Many of the kids who graduate from Eastern stay in the local area, but I was glad to get away.
