    "This is definitely a very white, very christian, very heterosexual school. That isn't to say that everyone else was constantly shamed since there were a lot of nice people, but you definitely could feel and see that you were an outsider. People would talk about you behind your back. Rumors of people being gay or lesbian would spread as if it was something that even should have so much attention because of how different it was. The town itself was pretty closed of to anything cultural that wasn't America or Texas. As for cultural diversity, mostly white. Vast majority. There were a few African Americans sprinkled through the grades, a pretty good amount of Hispanics. Native American? Well, let's just say that if you were white, there was probably about an eighth or sixteenth of Cherokee in you. Also, you were probably Czech since the town was primarily a Czech community for a long time. Asians? I think there was one Asian in the entire school... and he was half black so... I've had friends get picked on, ostracized, and made to feel that they were too different to be good enough just for something as stupid as who they wanted to date or what deity they did or did not worship in the sky."

    "When I was leaving, they were definitely starting to offer a few new courses and from what I hear they are trying to branch out. It's understandable why the courses weren't all that diverse because of the smaller population of the school. The way it would work is that they would offer a higher level course like Chemistry 2 or Physics 2 and whichever one met the minimum students quota would be the class that would open up. The curriculum given was pretty standard so for a school of that size, it offered enough for the students to be able to do a good amount of what they wanted to. It may not have offered welding or a variety of arts classes, but it had a theatre arts department along with technical theatre which taught about set design, no fashion class but there was basic sewing, there is now going to be a strictly photography class instead of just journalism or a 2 week study on the basics of photography in a multimedia class which I think is a wonderful development, there was no choir class even though every couple of years the elementary music teacher would attempt to revive a club for the students for a few months, but there was band and the option to do vocal solos was available. They would allow you to practice with the elementary music teacher and would pay for your entrance and take you to the competition so while it was not necessarily a class, the option to compete was always open and congratulated. They recently added a French class to foreign language which had previously only been occupied by Spanish (which had one good teacher and one pretty poor teacher beforehand). I think that for right now, the school is doing a pretty good job in introducing more for the students."

    "The teachers at this school are usually parents or close relatives to some of the students attending so there is already a lot of familiarity between the student body and the faculty. Most of the teachers you will have known your whole life and so they are not only invested in you academically but in your entire life. That being said, sometimes the teachers can be a bit too understanding as some have been known to lighten workloads out of concern that those in sports will be unable to complete their assignments. Some of the teachers like the ones I had for science and most of my English teachers were spot on incredible at their job, but more so in math classes does it become a bit frustrating to have to wait until the teachers are done trying to explain everything from the bottom of the class. They are indeed available to help after class and are most likely living only 3 blocks away from or attending the same church or events as their students so accessibility is never an issue. The teachers generally tend to be extremely knowledgeable about their field."

    "As far as schools go, it's pretty standard. It's a small town with tons of pride. While I did enjoy and excel at band, there just were not as many people both students and parents alike that were as enthused about non-athletic events as they were athletic events. Even sports-wise, it was almost always about track and football. As a non-athletic person myself, it would come as a blow to my self-esteem and pride when my or my close friends in band would absolutely nail a competition piece we had been practicing for months yet hardly get so much as a "congratulations" yet the scores for every volleyball game would be posted around with the announcements giving a play-by-play run down of the game. Even within the non-athletic activities were lazy unmotivated people who were only in the program because their parents had forced them to. This was a problem for them and they were a problem to the rest of the group. The parents would also get so riled up that even casual children sports would stop being fun. It was always about competition and the coaches have been known to expect too much out of some athletes and not enough out of others. I do love the friends that I made at the school. Honestly, the few classes that I felt actually challenged me, even if not by much, and the dear friends I made are the only thing keeping this place afloat in my mind. I had things that I enjoyed doing like joining the school play (which would also take a blow from the need to put athletics first) and competing in a few math competitions, but I would have much rather preferred attending a school where my individual talents could be placed on equal footing to everyone else's and judged accordingly rather than being treated as some afterthought. Good people; not the best support."

    "East Bernard is a diamond in the rough. You won't find a more competitive community anywhere else but you can add it to the growing pile of underfunded, ignorant, pep-rally-happy 1-3A Texan schools. The same mentality that leads the school to athletic success has driven it to neglect bigger issues such as lack of technology, lack of AP, nepotism, and bias towards gender among the faculty/staff. I love East Bernard but they really need help from properly trained, educated, and progressive educator; the small-town mentality of "if it's not broken, don't fix it; if it is neglect it anyways" hinders the true potential of this great but misguided district."
