Overall Eastside was an amazing school! The teachers would go over the norm to help you in anyway possible so you would succeed! The sports were ok and the food was delicious! I graduated in 2015 and I can honostly day that there isn’t a day, not even a minute goes by where I’m not thinking about what’s happening at good ‘ole Eastside. I miss it so much but you have to keep moving and not stay in the past all of the time! If you’re trying to find a high school for your child to attend, I’d recommended Eastside High School 100%. “Cause it’s always a good day to be an Eastside Eagle!”

I thought most of the teachers were really nice and caring. They were excited about their subjects and wanted to help us learn the material, particularly the AP teachers who were preparing us for college. However the non-AP classes weren't great. Many students were just filling seats. Sometimes there were fights and chaos. Fortunately gangs didn't have a big presence, though there was the usual smoking, drug use, teenage pregnancy. The administrative staff were stern/strict because they had to deal with the lowest common denominator of student. The teachers would get angry sometimes because the students disrespected them. But I think you'll find that in every public high school. Overall my experience was good. Compared to the other local high schools, Eastside is a good choice if you want your child to be prepared for college and you want a safer environment with less gang activity.
There are so many opportunities waiting at Eastside High School. We have a huge athletics department, fine arts department, and many honors societies and clubs to join! We were once rated one of the best public schools around for academic reasons! We have a two part lunch system, where you have an hour for lunch, yet if you need tutoring or to make up any work, you can use this time instead of having to come early or stay after school. One of the most unique things about Eastside, is that every year we pick a charity to help and for a whole week, we call it Spirit Week, we dress up in funky costumes, have tournaments, sell candy and food, and have different types of entertainment to raise money for them! Guidance counselors and teachers are always available to help too. It's great to be an Eastside Eagle!
