As a senior looking back on my high school experience, I feel lucky to say it has been mainly positive . We have a lot of school spirit and that classic public school charm (meaning that I have something weird or funny to tell my mom about every day after school). While of course imperfect, the school truly tries to create an inclusive culture and I have met great people (as well as not so great people) here. The teachers at Eastlake are mostly good. There are of course some duds but for the most part teachers really do care about what they are teaching and their students. The only issues I have had with teachers/administration is teachers that do not allow any opposition to their opinions and administration that is overly cautious. It often seems like administration/teachers are so focused on "saving" the students and making sure they don't look bad that they disregard any student opinions. Well I'm almost out of space so go wolves I guess!

Eastlake High is a diverse school that encourages individuality and student expression. Our arts and sports programs are engaging and fosters growth in students of all skill levels. With some outliers, a majority of teachers are knowledgeable, make courses exciting, effectively teach students the material, and genuinely care about their students' success and happiness. Counselors, campus security, and other staff administration members go out of their way to provide students with whatever help they need. However, students are, for whatever reason, broken up into small rigid social "clicks" which separates the community on campus. Students rarely interact with others outside of their click, and those unlucky enough to now have one have trouble making new friends. In addition, the school feels overcrowded. Parking is a huge issue as only a small percentage of students can fit into the parking lot, and many students miss out on our assemblies since our gym is too small to fit everyone.
Definitely the best school in the area! I love most of the teachers I have had (definitely some I didn’t have a great relationship with). Very typical high school experience, counselors are typically helpless, however that is really one of my only complaints.
