15 Parent Reviews for Eastern High School

Eastern is a well known High School in the Middletown district. My husband and I thought it was supposed to be a good school. I'm not sure what standards people expect from Eastern,however they are not as high as ours. If you don't mind your child `s teacher talking on their cell phones, leaving for ...  Read more

The school's renovations look great! And most of the teachers are really passionate about their jobs. They definitely want the best for the students. And I can tell that my counselor really cares about me and my well-being. Although the administration could use some work, the school and the staff is ...  Read more

Like the other poster, I was also expelled from Trinity High School, they have really tightened the belts on rules and no one gets away with anything. They hand Jugs out like free candy. I have been at Eastern for half a year so far, and let me just say, this school is a CAKE WALK compared to Trinity. ...  Read more

Maybe I am biased because i had to come here against my will because i was kicked out of Trinity High School (an all boys private school), but this school is really second rate. Some of the teaching staff even thought that the majority of students in the school were inherently bad. I am no perfect student, ...  Read more

From my first step onto Eastern's campus I knew this was not the school for me. I had just moved from a public school in Ohio and I was treated like an outsider, I was a sophmore. No one welcomes me, the teachers are lazy, the counselors are a joke, the facilities are old and underkept, and administration ...  Read more

Don't send your kid here. This school is unorganized, and socially chaotic, and bad for any child who needs a challenge. Just don't do this to your babies. They're education is most important, but you will not find a decent one at Eastern.

My son attended Eastern as a 12th grader after being kicked out of his private Christian school . We tried to get him into any other private school because Jefferson county public schools are a total joke. No parent who cares about their childrens' education and can afford to send their children to private ...  Read more

I graduated from Eastern many years ago. The teachers were good, and I got a good education. However, socially it was a disaster. I moved there from a small town and was treated as an outsider, alternately ignored and ridiculed. It was not a happy experience, but it made me stronger. Perhaps things ...  Read more

Despite the fact that this school only receives $5,281 per student per year compared to the state average of $10,301 per student, the school delivers an excellent education. I have three Eastern graduates. One has a masters in education, one is an attorney, and the other is in pharmacy school. Parents ...  Read more
