Alum: Good school with good teachers. Nice facilities and a lot more space compared to the old one! There were plenty of good classes, and engaging clubs and school events. Most teachers are pretty strict, but it is evened out with more relaxed teachers that understand we are still kids, and need to learn certain things. Some rules are a bit ridiculous or too strict, and can use a bit of tweaking. Besides that, it is a good school with good staff and can be a real blast if you give it your all.

Alum: It is what you make of it. There are a handful of great teachers, but they mostly teach AP classes (go figure), so non-AP students will not have as easy access to good teachers. The administration/guidance can be a hulking stone wall of bureaucracy when it comes to things like OK-ing abnormal or overbooked class schedules.
I had a decent time at Easton, but mostly because I was lucky enough to have some great teachers and a strong involvement in extracurriculars (especially the music program, which is excellent). But it can be hard for some students, because beyond encouraging the raging school spirit around football and "Tradition" (which apparently courses through our Rover veins thicker than blood), EAHS doesn't make an huge effort to academically support and encourage a wide range of interests. All the resources and opportunities you need to make a successful four years can definitely be found here, but for the most part you need to seek them out yourself.
