15 Parent Reviews for East High School

I am a recent graduate of East High and am now attending DePaul University. Reading the reviews below are heartbreaking and mean. The system that all schools use is the problem. Punishment is not the answer for tardiness at any school. Taking students out of class for being late to class will not get ...  Read more

The real deal of East is this: the teachers are great, there is a math teacher whose IQ is measured at 165. There are exceptions to this but for the most part the teachers are fine. There are intelligent students here who struggle with dealing with the district's way of handling things. I am not just ...  Read more

I am currently a Freshman attending East Aurora. I would not even consider giving this school a good review. Let's start off with the school's system. If you are two minutes late for class, instead of giving you a pass to go to class, they put you in ABI, which is a room full of unmotivated students. ...  Read more

Transfered here from a school ranked 9 out of 10 on here. this school is mediocre at best. My current chemistry teacher sits at his desk and eats McDonalds during my hour while teaching.

The East Aurora school staff are excellent. The NJROTC program is the best nationwide. This school really works with the kids, makes them strive to their fullest potential and really embraces our future leaders.

The spelling & grammar used by students in these reviews for East Aurora should speak for itself. The students of the East Aurora school district are not taught anything. Their writing & standardized test scores prove this time and time again. Proud to be a tomcat? Not hardly!

I have a daughter that is a Senior at East. What I have noticed over the years is that the biggest problem in the school is the students. Most of them have no respect for authority at all and don't care about education. My daughter finds herself defending the teachers on a daily basis. She will actually ...  Read more
