Eastside Catholic School Reviews

Overall, I had a great high school career here! It was everything I could hope for in a high school - the teachers are fantastic, and everyone is really kind, even across social barriers (such as jocks and band geeks). They also are famous for their great treatment of handicapped students - they often got to be homecoming royalty, and were treated very kindly by all types of people there.

My only complaint is that as a co-founder of the marching band, the school tends to not give much attention or money to the music program despite its outstanding record and awards won every year. Even when students got to travel the world based on musical achievement or the band went to state championships in multiple areas, there were no announcements unless we pushed the administration.

I have been at Eastside Catholic School since my Freshman year. I am a senior now. All high schools are going to have the same issues - you'll never find a high school where they're aren't parties, but I can say about EC is that there are no drugs, students don't drink or do anything bad on campus, and the faculty and staff actually care. I have made meaningful relationships with my teachers, as well as the administration - they care about me and my well being as well as my success as a student and young adult. These are things you will not find on every high school campus. The academic and college counselors are also top notch - I got into all my top colleges that I applied for and I'm not a 4.0 student. This school provides a great balance of sports (awesome program), academics, social activities as well as clubs. I had opportunities to take a ministry leadership course, as well as tutor kids with disabilities. Yes, EC is a private school, but it is worth every cent.
I have been at EC since 8th grade (I am now a senior) I came from a public school and at first I really enjoyed EC. The school spirit was amazing and the faculty and fellow students were incredibly welcoming. Over the years EC has had a lot of trouble with administration and has seemed to have lost the spirited “crusader” vibe it used to have when I started high school. Mr. Matthews the government teacher has been my favorite teacher I have ever had due to his unique teaching style. He in fact had inspired me to go on to study law in college. EC has also made my high school career amazing because of the sports at the school. However a lot of the sports are not very well recognized. A lot of sports, especially soccer, are not really funded or recognized. The team isn’t very good and the coaching is a joke. Uniforms for the soccer teams are reaplaced after about 3 years.while football gets 4 sets of uniforms each season
