I transferred from a choice school that I hated. This school is very great and the environment is extremely positive. People who you've never talked to will say hi to you in the halls and smile at you. I love that even though you don't know everyone, the atmosphere is very family-oriented and this school is very united. If I could do it over again I would definitely have gone to this school all 4 years of high school. I feel that going here makes me a more well-rounded individual and I'm thankful that I made the decision to transfer here!

Eastlake High School has unbelievable school spirit compared to other schools in the district. Students there truly love their school, shown by attending football games, wearing school gear every day a game is being held, and being a part of the leadership team. Teachers there are always so supportive and are always there when students need any extra help or just a friend to talk to. We, as students, make sure that each of our teachers/staff are appreciated by holding a retirement assembly at the end of each year for teachers who are leaving. I, as a student, really believe in the moto for our school, "Wolf Strong Pack Strong". It symbolises the community and family I have at school. Through my 4 years at Eastlake, I've truly felt welcomed and grateful to have been able to attend this loving school. The characteristics impact on the overall student performance, which is above average for the state of Washington.

Having attended multiple high schools in life, I have a good idea about what traits a school has that makes the experience both fulfilling and enjoyable. At Eastlake, we have excellent sports teams, clubs, and activities; however, there are no SAT or ACT prep courses available, the school diversity is essentially nonexistent, and the all of the cliques make making friends difficult. I wish Eastlake had teachers who were more willing to help students to succeed rather than (some teachers, not all) who humiliate students and simply do not teach the course efficiently.
