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.
What I really loved about Eastlake High school is how much diversity there is. I got to know so many different people and cultures and foods. With that diversity I learned so much more about people, and as students we were able to create and be a part of many of our own clubs! The teachers are really great and make the day fun as best they can while still giving out homework. It's a huge school though with thousands of students and staff, but they treat you like an adult and help you get jobs and do service and learn to take care of yourself.
