    Ok can anyone tell me what is the purpose of the senior project. I can tell you that in my household it has just been just the stress and the expense. For Gods sake let the senior year be a year that these seniors can enjoy since the other 3 years have difficult ones East Providence High is not the greatest school to be in.

    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 at unparalleled levels.

    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. 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)

    Avoid this school at all costs - My daughter has been going here for almost a year and her grades have done a nose dive do the teachers feel any respoinsibility for this (you know cause they are the ones teaching) nope they blame everyone but themselves for your childs bad grades it either the student not working hard enough or the parent is not doing enough but you will never hear them say its me I need more time with your child to get them to understand the subject at hand

    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 large urban school but then some cannot. Mine cannot and I am working on finding another environment for her. ADVICE If your child has a learning issue find another small setting. Or get ready to be chasing down faculty there all year long!

    I am currently a sophmore at EPHS. I have to agree some teachers don't do their jobs quite as well as others and some do theirs too well.. what I'm trying to say is we have amazing extracuriccular but not enough learning advantages in this school

    I am a parent that is very unsatisfied with my sons school not only does the school change there rules often they also think its wise to give the children so many responsibility with portfoilos community service senior project on top of that the kids have to study every day and I feel that its a bit much. I just think that might be a reason why kids dont really want to stay in school to graduate. So my son say the kids are saying in school. I say give them some portfoilos not 14 and no community service allow senior project. When is enough enough...

    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. The school is simply a bad learning environment. In addition the recent ratings of the school by The City Building Official Quattrucci prove that the school is unsatisfactory. Everything Quattrucci has said is true I can show those who don't believe me which doors he is talking about etc.

    I am currently a freshman at EPHS and the school is beyond belief! I am enjoying it so much and I can't believe I only get 4 years there! The teachers are great. They help you with every problem you could possibly have the admin is great and the students treat eachother with respect for the most part. Other than a few misbehaving kid the school is perfect!!!

    I am curently a stdent in the 10th grade at EPHS and I love it. There are exellent teachers and great after-school activities. I am on the football and swimteam and I have found that no matter coach or teacher they will find a way to help you at school with a tutor or just a little extra help from your teachers. The most important thing is Townie Pride all of the sporting events are pacted with parents students teachers and just people who live in the town. Honestly there is nowhere i would rather be.

    I'm not a parent of a student and ephs rather i am a former student. I decided to leave ephs in my senior year and came to methuen high school in mass. I can honestly say for experience that no school can ever compare to ephs. True we do not have the best grades but it's the one and only school that I have ever truely felt safe.
