East Jessamine High School Reviews
Needs a lot of work. Too much disrespect.
I moved from what I considered to be a horrid school district in Tennessee, and upon arrival I had high hopes for East High. Keep in mind, I am a senior, I graduate this december, an early graduate. And I have a few shot nerves about this school. For one, the counselors in the office have no respect for the students. I went in with a serious issue, that involved financial issues. Not once did the lady working the desk even look up to properly address me and my situation. Nor did she help solve the problem. Another thing that has me nerved about the school is the lack of overall disrespect. This goes for both students and the teachers. Along with the ingenuity issue. Yes it is a great program. But do you really need to give referrals to students whom are looking at their feet? I don't think so. Not to mention that classrooms are over-run with kids. And many of the students get kicked from those course, and are even put into courses they do not need, already had, or just stuck in the hall. I transferred here with 23/26 credits, and they tried sticking me back in classes I had already passed. You would think as a school, seniors would have first priority to classes they need to graduate.
Nice school great teachers
