    Overall Experience: The students weren't the friendliest. Some of the teachers weren't that helpful, even if they saw you struggling in class they'd only care about the students who were doing very well in their class.

    Overall Experience: I have enjoyed the past schools years and if I were to have to redo my life, I would choose to enroll back at this school on the condition that my friends would be there. I was able to join a club that my friend had created and it is called "The Survival Club". I enjoyed the lessons that the club president and her assistants gave along with the videos that they showed about survival techniques.

    Overall Experience: The energy going on around the school. The majority of the people are great, I'll be honest. Going into my 4 year at this school I have been able to include myself into many opportunities. And knowing so many great people because of these. The spirit that we have is great but just the amount of people at this school is unbearable. When the student body is overpopulated, your day can get very frustrating. But that just shows how great this school is. Success in the athletic department back to back, year after year. Not to mention the academics, higher level thinking and slightly harder classes calls for a great school. I'm personally proud to be a Titan.

    Overall Experience: Eastlake High School is an overall 7/10 school. The school has great teachers and staff but the lack of effort from the students makes the job harder for them and frustrates them. Most students that attend this school have no long-term goals to strive for, are indecisive about what they want in life, and simply do not care for academics, only sports. I think this is because Eastlake High School has a high output of athletic stars and top rated sport teams across all areas, ranging from football to wrestling. Therefore, the school puts more focus into sports than academics, which is convenient for some people, but even so, it is something I dislike because people don't have to put a real effort to get passing grades due to coach influences. This goes against what I believe, which is that hard work pays off. I think it is an okay school for the average teenager who has no eagerness to learn, but if you want to learn and gain knowledge, I suggest you look for another school because this school is 70% sports and 30% academics. If I could do it all over again I would choose not to, but instead go to a more academics-focused school.
