I love Eastside High! The teachers are so down to earth and understanding. They want the best for you and want to see you succeed. The family at Eastside is so tightly knit and special. Everyone knows one another, and they are all friendly and helpful, whether it be teachers, staff, administrators, or students. The academics are challenging, but even then, class is still always so fun. It is a very diverse body and everyone is given the same tools to succeed. Overall, the nest is an amazing place to be, and I've had such a great high school experience here.

Eastside has given me the most exciting and fun high school experience I could possibly have. I didn't have one teacher that wouldn't go the extra mile to give me assistance if I needed it. The school has been very academically successful, so fighting for a good class rank has been a challenge. I wouldn't ever trade Eastside for another school!
Eastside is a good school. The classes and teachers are good. The teachers are helpful during school, and for outside tutoring. The library and cafeteria food is good. They have a lot of clubs and extra activities for many different interests. Eastside has a lot of school spirit that brings together students and the community for sports, fundraisers, concerts, plays, etc. The students are mostly nice, albeit very homogenous. I would like to see more diversity there. The counselors are very helpful, and try their best to ensure students get the classes they want, and assist seniors in applying for college. I wish the fine arts department had more funding, but, alas, I understand the sports department did really need that second gym.
