Great families attend Eastside. Our child has met many good friends who have made positive impacts.
The staff at Eastside work hard to prepare students. Eastside students have received many state accolades and have done well on state and national tests. If I am not mistaken, Eastside has the number one academic team in the state!!! The teachers, administrators, and staff care a great deal about the students, and they make all decisions focused on what's best for the kids! Go see Eastside to learn for yourself.
Eastside is a decent facility, well maintained thanks to the custodial staff but is somewhat lacking overall. The teachers generally do not care about the students and the Math department is known county wide for not teaching the students, especially during their freshmen year. Most of the school's funding goes into the football team. There is not much issue disciple wise but there have been bomb threats and multiple drug arrests. It is the best school in Newton County but it is still not a very good school. The staffing needs to change before that can happen.
My daughter is a junior at Eastside. We have lived in the area for 15 years and moved just so she could attend this school. If you live on the eastern side of Atlanta, in my opinion it is the best high school around, including adjoining counties. The administration is great, very strong and the teachers really care about the kids. They offer more AP and Quest classes than Rockdale, Walton or Morgan, and believe me they are tough - we feel our daughter will be well prepared for college. The school does a great job communicating and the band program is also especially good if your kid is into music. I would highly recommend Eastside.
