On Administration & Policies: The school administration is usually hands on but they dont help you individually.

On Resources & Facilities: The school itself is over sixty years old now. There are elements of the campus my father remembers from when he attended school here. In the past year, the auditorium has been renovated to ensure compatibility with certain codes for the handicapped. Almost all of the classrooms have three computers (two for student use and one for the teacher) for educational use. My guidance counselor was very helpful when it came time for me to start looking for and applying to colleges.

On Educational Outcomes: I was in the I.B. Program at East, and I can say it definitely prepared me for college. Within the first month, we were covering things in my classes that I had already been taught through the rigorous curriculum this program brings. I think without the program and my teachers, I would probably not have been as successful as a student.

On Extracurriculars: When I was at East Meck, I participated in Marching Band as a member of the color guard and I sang with the Chamber Choir. I enjoyed both experiences and would do them again if I could. Both clubs were very successful in their respective competitions, winning awards and achieving high marks at most of them.

On Overall Experience: East Meck has great school spirit. The current principle, Richard Parker, does a great job getting students excited at sporting events and competitions, but he is also effective at encouraging students to do their best when it comes to learning.
