Zeeland East is a great, well cared for, and safe environment. Because it intermingles with Zeeland West High School, a wide variety of classes, sports, and extracurricular activities are offered. The teachers, faculty, and students are great to be around and are overall very fun. Our school sponsors the Be Nice program and does very well with getting students from the Special Ed program involved in student activities. I enjoy my time here but would recommend adding more ways for students to connect and bond, such as pep rallies, dances, and class-wide events.

Zeeland East offers many different things for students to thrive. For instance, they offer a huge performing arts wing which includes theater and dance with many different levels. The school allows dance concerts which are a huge part of the school, and also offers musicals every year
Overall, this is a very good school. I felt valued by most teachers and learned life skills. The teachers at this school are mostly excellent teachers. They make the classes entertaining and the material easy to remember. The only thing that I was not happy with at this school was how strict the rules were. The dress code rules are very strict for girls but not for guys. Many girls would get in trouble for showing shoulders, but many boys would be able to wear shirts with inappropriate images and go unpunished. Also, our school dance rules were somewhat strict. However, this is easily overlooked when thinking back to the amazing teaching staff.
