On Health & Safety: I heard the nurse was only there on certain days. The school security was always around as they acted as escorts for students to go from one place to another. I think the school is safe when it comes to exterior threats, such as weather, etc.

On Resources & Facilities: The school is laid out throughout the site and they are always making changes that help the students. They had the AVID club, which helped students determine what they needed to do to get into college and it helped them to see what needed to be done once they got into college. Tutoring was usually set up between the student and the teacher and I think this worked very well, because it got the teachers to learn more about the different learning styles of their students.

On Administration & Policies: The administration was very hands on and made sure that each student would not get in trouble. They were strict about dress code, by making sure boys did not sag their pants and girls' skirts were longer than their fingertips. They lacked in some areas while I was there, but I hear they are continuing to try to implement new procedures that work better for them and the students.

On Educational Outcomes: The teachers really tried to help me reach my full potential by pushing me to be the best person I could be. I was involved in many extracurricular activities at East Meck and they helped me to get to know many people as well as be a well-rounded student.

On Food: The food is decent on a good day. you'll get tired of pizza if you don't eat or just a salad. The snacks are good, and cheese sticks when they have them
