This school has an excellent faculty and staff. There are plenty of teachers that put forward all their effort into the students to help them become the best they can be. The school offers many clubs and extra curricular activities enough for a student to at least identify with new of them.
The student body at Eastside isn't very diverse with majority of the population being white, but the school tries their best to acknowledge minority groups.
An upgrade that the school could use is an entire new building because the school is continuously growing larger. That issue is being worked on currently and in the school year 2021-2022 the new Eastside building will be opening. Also because the school is finally growing they will be opening many more classes for the students to take because now they have enough students to make a class. This will lead to more openings and opportunities for the students at Eastside High School.

I have had an amazing experience at Eastside. You can’t go wrong being involved in a club, sport, or arts activity here. The teachers are loving, caring, and knowledgeable. Everyday truly is a great day to be an eagle!
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!
