    Overall Experience: I loved going to East Central HS. I'm glad I transferred over there. I love how big we were on sports, not just football but every sport. I also love how we're a small community, everyone knows everyone and everybody is there for you.

    Health & Safety: Overall this school is pretty safe. There are rarely fights and I felt pretty safe at this school. Because of the location, this school's student population uses alcohol more so than drugs
