Eastside High School Reviews

I am currently attending Eastside and my experience here has been nothing but good energy. I have A's and B's in all my classes and I am on the Varsity Basketball Cheerleading Squad. Respect is shown to be a two way street here at Eastside. Teachers do have your best interest at heart. They will do everything they can, give your every opportunity they are able to give to make sure you grasp the material and that you graduate. As far as drama, Eastside is not the school with much trouble. Yes you have to pick and choose your crowds but Eastside has a very low tolerance for fighting, confrontation, cheating, etc., so any of it will not go unseen. But too many students are worried about graduating rather than getting in any trouble.
Eastside graduates nothing but EXCELLENCE!

Eastside High School has provided an incredible learning environment for me over the last four years. I have enjoyed getting to be a part of the Eastside family! In May 2017, I was given the opportunity to go on a study abroad to South Africa. This was by far my favorite part about my high school years. I participated in the Move On When Ready program through Junior and Senior year, which opened a lot of doors for me. The majority of the teachers are wonderful and sincerely care about their students. This is something I find very important in a high school community because it is really great knowing your teachers care about you and your future. Eastside gave me many opportunities and I am thankful for the time I have spent at such a great high school.
My experience at Eastside Highschool has honestly been nothing, but amazing. A good majority of the teachers and administration genually care about you and your success. The principal, Jeff Cher, is one of the sweetest people in the world and is ALWAYS encourage. He does everything he can to involve himself within multiple people groups, and everything he does for us is out of the want and need of our safety as students. My four years of highschool have all been positive thanks to this caring school.
