28 Parent Reviews for East High School

In many ways this is a very good school & I'm willing to delete the comment & write about all the great stuff. One appalling flaw that I and many other parents have brought up for more than this year to admin is the practice in 1 Spanish rm. The teacher uses like a roulette wheel for kids to earn 'pesos' ...  Read more

We are new to the city and we knew East HS would be a big change for my 9th grade daughter. It has been the very best change. The school culture is one of accepting all people as they are. Students can be who they want to be. Because of this my daughter has completely blossomed. She is so much more confident ...  Read more

This school is amazing. There is a wide range of challenging classes available, the athletics are awesome, and the arts programs are equally remarkable. The teachers get better and better as the classes increase in difficulty. However, it is also known for being a "party" school.

Simply put, East is extraordinary. Although the school has a strong athletic tradition, the competitive academic environment and diverse culture is what really sets East apart. There is tremendous pride that comes with being an Angel.

I've been impressed with nearly every teacher he's had over the past 3 years. They are engaged and clearly love ...  Read more

I have an average student and find that as an average student my son needs additional tutoring to succeed in school,especially in math. I think East, like most public schools struggles with overcrowding. Teachers have so many students that they do not have time to devote to students on a "one on one" ...  Read more

As an East High graduate, I can tell you that the special thing about East has little to do with test scores. As a school it certainly has always produced fine academicians. The intangible something that is East comes from the people and the spirit from all that have gone before. It is not just some ...  Read more
