Everything honestly just depends on the sports. Our soccer teams are amazingly good and they have a pretty huge coaching staff, fan base and a big team. Our football team isn't very good and everyone always talks the players down , even the coaches but every home game the stands are mainly filled, so it confuses the players. The Cross Country team is amazing, both in their support and their runners. We're okay in basketball and we have pretty full houses for all home games. Our cheer leaders lack spirit but the varsity cheer's routines are amazing! The cheerleaders and the dance team always have dance offs during half times. I personally believe that our athletics would improve if the staff and students had more team spirit, but that's just how I feel.

Nothing is perfect but the staff at East Aurora is very good! They mostly regularly update grades and assignments and are always free to help out, even if you have to rearrange things to get work done. They are all considerate and kind and genuinely are about their students and all of the students in our school. They want us to succeed and they'll pull all-nighters grading work, filling out recommendations or trying to help us with anything we need. They're honestly awesome!

The cafeteria is fairly small compared to the student size of the school. Whenever a food fight would occur many of the snacks and condiments would be taken away from the students as a punishment. At times students would forget and buy salads and there would be no type of salad dressing. The pizza at EAHS is not healthy at all! The pizza is very greasy and does not taste very good. The pasta was from hamburger helper and it also did not taste good. The variety of food slowly decreased every year. My sophomore year we had soups and when junior year came all soups were gone.
