I came into Proviso East as Junior who came from a privates school.That being said, my experience here has been one remarkable and eye-opening. Before I came here I heard many rumors about how dangerous and horrible it was here,and the academics was less than subpar.However, I made a promise to myself to do everything I could to get involved and stay ahead- and that's exactly what I did. My first year there was a great one.I joined several clubs and had amazing teachers.I also met the principal, Dr.Hardy, on my very first day and he was very supportive and seemed thrilled to be there.My experience has taught me not to judge something before I try it and to also keep a positive mindset because I never know what I'm going to get out of it. To future students, don't listen to others when they tell you the school is horrible and that you are going to have a terrible time here. It's up for you to decide what type of experience you're going to have, and that's for anywhere you go in life.

Proviso East is undergoing a positive change , thanks to the staff and principal we've had since 2015. Our school is one of the only from our district that now offers a competency based curriculum, and is offering to add more Advanced placement classes . Teachers and staff have a great relationship with students ,thanks not only to their commitment to prepare us for the future but for their motivation and thrive to see us succeed and helping us change the negative stereotype the media and others have painted us to be ,by acknowledging our triumphs and seeing the good within us and allowing us to have a voice that is heard and taken into consideration for our school.
Proviso East is an average high school, meaning it’s not the best but it’s not the worst. Most of the time is fun going although there are times when it’s really borinh and exhausting. What I like about this school is their clubs and sports which include drama club, robotics club and sports such as Basketball, Soccer, Volleyball, etc. I feel like there can be a lot of improvement done to Proviso East. I think they should really push some of the teachers to teach their students because some of the teachers don’t teach, they’ll get mad if you ask them questions or ask to use the bathroom when it’s needed. Not all of the teachers are like that though, most of the teachers are fun and caring and want their students to succeed.
