I have a mixed experience with Eastlake High School. Because this high school is placed in a wealthier neighborhood, this school provides many opportunities for their students to succeed. But there is always room for improvement, such as, focusing on the distribution of funds. This school places a heavy emphasis on football, just like every other high school. With updated uniforms for about 100-200 junior varsity and varsity members, this leaves other sports with close to nothing. The academics is a strong suit of this school. We have many AP classes that are offered, and staff heavily push students towards challenging their minds with these courses. This school also strives for college admission with their program with San Diego State. I know several cases, including myself, had the opportunity to attend San Diego state because of their agreement with the school.

I’ve been at Eastlake High for four years, and I’ve seen the school progress during those years. The daily bulletin has gotten more interesting, the spirit week promotions became more interactive with the students, and the spirit week themes got more creative. Eastlake High school offers a safe environment filled with plenty of trusted adults. The downside to this school is that some select teachers do not appear able to teach students due to temper. Other teachers do not know how to teach a subject to a class of teenagers. They either go strictly by the book and do not offer any other assistance, or they go off subject, and they give the students low grades for not knowing the concepts, even though it is the teacher’s responsibility to teach it. Another down side is that the bathrooms are not constantly maintained, and the multiple gate entrances have been closed due to the principal’s new dress-code, causing inconveniences in the morning during drop-off.
I am a recent graduate of Eastlake High School, class of 2018. The school is not particularly great in regards to academic ranking among the Sweetwater School District schools. There are a few gems of teachers, but for the most part, many teachers there are safe under tenure and therefore are jaded. Some teachers and staff are so dedicated to students' success that they will always be at school until well into the evening to help their students. Others will high-tail it out of there as soon as the bell rings. The school's facilities are average, not great, but not terrible. The population is diverse, seeing as we are a mix of Hispanic, Asian, white, and black students. There are plenty of student organizations and clubs that students can join to get involved in and get community service hours.
