    Overall Experience: This was by far the best school that I have ever attended and would most definitely recommend that if people are planning on moving to NC that they move within East's node. The arts arts are great to be a part of and most people care about a lot of different things going on at school

    Administration & Policies: East takes things such as bullying and misbehaviour very seriously and punishments are dealt out accordingly. One think that I thought was important was that the teachers attempted to deal with the students instead of automatically sending them to the office. The administration is very helpful and while the dress code exists, teachers are very relaxed about it.

    Sports & Fitness: People are really into sports at East and even if the teams don't win students still care. The dedication runs so deep that there is a club dedicated to showing school/sport spirit.

    Extracurriculars: There is something for every student to get involved in and if a student believes that there should be another club formed, forming one is not hard to do.
