The teachers were outstanding, taught me to clean up especially when it came to silly mental errors and how tracking my progress through a problem and breaking questions down as far as possible. However, the students are quite frustrating, immature and create lots of excess problems for the teachers, janitors, and administrative staff. Sadly our school district is separated into W.S. East and W.S. West and we simply cannot afford two different schools it would be nice to see the schools merge, combine their money to be used more efficiently.

I love how WSE has Academies such as Life Science, Finance, Art, Media and Engineering. It gives the students a look into one of their possible career paths.
In addition, I love the class offerings at WSE-- AP's, Enriched courses, many electives.
The clubs are also a great thing, there's something for everyone.

One thing I'd like to change about WSE is the fighting. Last year, there have been many fights but I appreciate the effort proposed by the administration to reduce and prevent that by new enforced rules.
I enjoyed my time at East Senior. The school lacks in a diverse group of students- most being white Catholics. The academics aren't rigorous but there are many AP options that prepare students for college. The teachers are interested in helping students not only pass the class but have an understanding. They were too easy for some students though, as I did well in high school and struggle in college. Wish they taught study skills
