Park East High School Reviews

This school definitely helped me stay on track. The students are never on their own and always have someone they can reach out to. They have the best support system and can go to any teacher or staff about academics or even personal things. The teachers go out of their way to bond with students and make them feel welcomed and comfortable. They prepare you for college starting as a freshman and start helping students with the college process during their junior year. The school has a variety of sports and students are very involved in them. I would not trade this school for any other.

My experience in Park East is crazy. Most teachers can say that I have grown up and matured a lot. I had lots of set backs in the school but the teachers are always there to help out which is why I highly recommend Park East. The things I love about the school is that one its small school. Only about 400 students in the school. Another reason is that the teachers can meet and get to know you on a personal level. All the teachers know who you especially if you are like me who has a great heart but gets in trouble once in a while. The teachers are able to focus on the students who are kind of struggling and are really hard on students. A major reason is that students are prepared for college. The regents help students avoid remedial classes in college. A lot of classes prepare you for college and have lessons in a more college type of way.
The best part about Park East High School are the teachers. You can tell that the teachers love their job are really want to help and engage with their students. Most likely if you graduate from this school you will come out having your teachers as friends. The only downside from the school are some of the students. However, that is not the school's fault. Like any school, there are always disruptive and disrespectful students, however the administration does what they can to deal with them. Overall, I liked my school and am proud to be an alumni.
