    Greatest attraction is the school never seems to close. Teachers and student are always there well into the evening. There are constant activities. I'm most impressed with the teachers who remain after class to tutor. They seem happy to be doing so. I have two granddaughters attending and they are doing very well academically along with their involvement with band cheerleaders drama choir and track. A great school with a great atmosphere staff and administration.

    Iam a female junior at e.a. and ive spent three years so far here. Its a great school in so many ways. But like any school there is always some kind of downfall. Eastmoors arts are outstanding! And all the different clubs are great to join. I'm in the impact team gospel choir.womens chorus mixed ensamble.spanish club.drama club and ive did many sports since freshman year here.the teachers and principles will reconize you when you achieve something great and it feels great .ive been reconized 3 times so far and one of them was in the middle of class ! lol Yes they do give a lot of work academically but that part of learning. It may be hard at first to maintain all the work but it gets easier the longer you stay. Youll love it once you get into it. )

    Great parent support! I am an Eastmoor High School Alumni with a child enrolled and am happy with the progress. The academic preparedness is top notch and the drama and athletic programs are stellar. EA is one of Columbus City Schools' gems.

    The people are hurtful. The teachers can't manage the classes and the school is completely overrated. People don't understand that yes it may be ranked higher up but the school is a terrible place to go. I know that I would never put my kids in such a place. I have been counting the days until I leave. The celebration won't be of my happy years it will be of the fact that I never have to set foot in that building ever again. I have never hated a place so much in my life.

    Eastmoor Academy is an excellent school with excellent hardworking teachers dedicated to the success of each student. As a parent I am very sad to see Principal Darryl Sanders leave as his effectiveness has led to him to a promotion in the district however I am excited about the new leadership of the school. My experience as a parent has been outstanding. I recently spoke with a prior EA student who proudly spoke of prepardness for college which she credited to her EA experience.

    Principal - Darryl Sanders Eastmoor Academy I had the most extraordinary opportunity of monitoring and observing the principal interacting with the students at Eastmoor Academy and I was extremely impressed especially with it being a without notification. The geniune saftey love and concerned that was shown for each child as they walked through the halls and in their classes the level of communication and sensibility for each student was phenomenal. It was a joint effort among the assistant principals as well as the staff. This school should be awarded for the tremendous work that they are incorporating for the whole student to prepare them for the future. Not only should they be rated a 5 star but with the resources that they have to manage with just think of the work they could accomplish as the board continues to support the principal and staff with increase revenue for the welfare of these students. Thanks

    I currently attend Eastmoor Academy High School. I am a Freshman. So far I love this school and I haven't even been there for 2 months. I also like it because it is a College Prep school. So if you are not in school to learn you minds well not come to EAHS. Because the staff have zero tolerance to put up with kids that don't want a good education. So if you are looking forward to go to College this is the perfect school for you. I just think God cause I am in one of the best schools in Columbus Public District and there are many of kids that wants to be in my place. Our school slogan ' Where The Best Success'. So please be prepare when you come to this school because the work is based on College Prep Level. Which is awesome for me and others.

    All 3 of my children attended Eastmoor Academy I found the experience to be Superb!!!! The Music & Drama Department is fantastic. The teachers really care about your children and really take the time to make sure they understand and know what they are doing. Parents stay involve in your children education to help them achieve their very best Eastmoor staff is their to make the transition from high school student to college student an easier transition.

    I graduated from Eastmoor Academy in 2001 and loved my experience here. Eastmoor did a great job of preparing me for college life and college corse work. I also loved the fine arts department. Being apart of the school plays and musicals enriched me culturally and introduced me to a world I never knew!

    I think Eastmoor has the highest academic quality in Columbus Public High Schools. The drama program is known state wide and the sports programs is also noted for state titles in several areas. The PTA is perhaps the 2nd or 3rd largest in membership in the district. Several of our students have been accepted in leadership summits.

    Excellent school that will prepare your child for college. Wonderful caring teachers that offer innovative ways to educate students. Great choice.

    Choosing EA as the school to prepare my son for the real world was the best decision I made. The concern that the teachers & staff show for the kids is remarkable. They truly are concerned for the young men and woman they are mentoring. When you walk into the school you feel a since a professionalism. And when you leave you feel a since of pride. The doors are always open to you and the availability and the staff is great. My son has been attending EA since the 9th grade and he will be in th 11th grade for the 2005-2006 school year. I look forward to him going make to school and reaching is destiny in life. Eastmoor Academy is the place to be.

    I am currently a student at Eastmoor Academy. Eastmoor teaches me daily to strive for the best and makes me believe that I can achieve all of my goals. Eastmoor in an excellent school for any child who wants to suceed in the future. The teachers are always there when you need them and the principal always has an open ear for your comments or concerns. Eastmoor is a great place to send any student who is determined to learn.
