Unfortunately, I was only able to attend East Meck for one year. However, East has given me the best year of my life. Thanks to my amazing teachers and my even more amazing principle, my sophmore year is one I will never forget.

The Music Program rocks. My son is on the Marching bands. 'Go Eagles'. His being on the band has made a big difference in his life. He is a rising Senior and East is his school.
