I have always heard the IB program is the reason the school ranks high which is what is stated on the wiki page below. The east side of Gainesville has some questionable parts.


Eastside is consistently ranked among the top 50 of America's public high schools by Newsweek magazine, and was ranked fourth in 2005.[1]

There is a large disparity between the quality of education for the IB students and those in the major program. The many accolades Eastside receives are mainly due to its IB program. It attracts some of the most academically gifted students in the Alachua County area, including children of international professors at the University of Florida. It is currently facing funding problems due to severe budget cuts which has limited the resource usage for academics resulting in dissatisfaction amongst parents and teachers. Comparatively, in 2004 only 12 percent of black students read at grade level.[2]

Eastside is the worst HS in the area! Lamplighter, in terms of people is 90% trailer park trash.
