I am very happy with my experience at Eastland. The biggest downfall here is the lack of attention that is paid to certain clubs/sports in comparison to others. I will say that the golf and cross country team doesn't really get any attention for their accomplishments, but if the Volleyball, Football, or Basketball teams accomplish anything they are the talk of the halls for WEEKS. It is kind of discouraging at times, but you learn to deal and not sweat the small stuff. I can't complain really because I look at everything else this school has and I'm very content. The people here are welcoming and the teachers have become some of my favorite people. The food here is AMAZING! Honestly, from what I've seen, school food around us is GROSS! I am so glad I was able to spend the last 13 years of school at Eastland and I am so excited to continue the journey that is has prepared me for.
If you are a low-income family or interested in the arts, I recommend attending another school. The environment around family income creates a divide between what administration and student deem “good” students and “bad” students. Furthermore, the arts are consistently underfunded and are not given the same opportunities that the athletic department has. Administration is unwilling to hear the voices of students and talk down to them rather than to them.
I have attended Eastland since middle school and graduated in Michigan for a good reason. They claim to have a zero-tolerance bullying policy but was always told by my own school counselor "you scare people away sometimes." Absolutely no diversity, so being a different race or LGBTQ is definitely a challenge. I did not feel safe there, as a transgender person myself, which left me not using either restroom until I got home. The teachers are unprofessional, and they placed me in special education classes when I didn't need them at all. I'm glad I did not get my High School Diploma here.
