Eastland Junior-Senior High School Reviews
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.
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.
If I had not attended this school for the past 13 years of my education, I would not be who I am. The building feels like home thanks to other staff members who are sure to greet me every day with a smile or a warm "hello". Thanks to the strong leadership of teachers and faculty, the students are great as well. Eastland is my family and my home. One thing I would change is that I would like for these amazing people to receive more recognition from administration, as most of them stay in the background. Every club is lead by a passionate adviser who encourages participation from all members. Everyone has glowing pride the second they put on a piece of apparel that says "Eastland". Sports are mediocre at the school compared to everything else. While the basketball coach is absolutely phenomenal, the volleyball coaches are scum of the earth, to say the least. We have the best food in the area, maybe in the world, because our food director is an absolute angel!
