The teachers in this school care about their students however that same level of caring about education isn't necessarily replicated within the student body. In fact the student body here is the most disgusting i have ever seen. They swear constantly, they enjoy bullying. The level of Homophobia is

I attended East Providence High School and I can honestly say that the teachers, staff, nor the principal was at all helpful in ANY situation. If you are having trouble in your classes the teachers tell you to try harder when students can only try so hard. When a student asks for help it should be given.
... Read more I failed English 9 due to issues with me, my parents, and the teacher. Instead of giving me a different teacher the next year they gave me the same one.. 3 TIMES. Each time failing while I was passing 10th and 11th grade English with no issues, I have a post high school reading level and found this to be ridiculous. If you are absent for a week or more due to personal reasons or being sick, instead of the staff showing compassion and caring, they threaten to suspend and even expel you. This school is utterly ridiculous and I DO NOT BY ANY MEANS RECOMMEND SENDING YOUR CHILD THERE. It is an unsafe, un-nurturing environment with hostile staff, students, and teachers. And the school buildings state? The School is falling apart at every corner no matter how many "renovations" they are doing. (Tiles containing asbestos still remain after 2 YEARS when they were told to remove it) Read less

EPHS is a jungle. The staff will appear helpful when u go in to meet with them but they do not come through at all. I sent my child here and her grades plummeted right down, along with other issues. Which, btw did not get addressed as of yet and now it is summer time. Some children can survive the

East Providence High School is the biggest high school in the state of Rhode Island.. No easy task for the teachers or the students. But everyone does a great job. We have a very active PTSA that helps with communication between the school and home.

I'm a current student, going into my senior year. I will not however be attending classes at EPHS in the fall. The school was a bad fit for me. The classes are too easy and the learning environment is negative. Even in honors classes there are kids who sleep through class and get into fights with teachers.

Everything Quattrucci has said is true, I can show those who don't believe me which doors he is talking about etc. Read less
