I'm not gonna lie. I hated my freshman year but it wasn't because of the school it was mainly because I was very insecure and intisocial. This school was life changing for me. I met some amazing people and my teachers were great, well some. We can't all be perfect. Anyway, truth is, your environment ...  Read more

East has been a wonderful experience for my son. He's involved in sports and the student commission and loves his teachers. They all seem to truly care about how he does and when he's not putting forth his full effort, they let him and me know about it! He's made some great friends (students and teachers). ...  Read more

I love East! People might think that it has the worst reputation, but truth is, it's not bad at all. Rockford East is not only a school. With a solid base filled with tradition and spirit, this school is a family. Most teachers that work there, used to go there. Everyone's parents once were students ...  Read more

My eldest daughter attended EHS from 9-03 to 6-07, probably the worst 4 years for East both academically and in athletics. She took honors classes, participated in athletics and had a wonderful experience at EHS. The large group of friends she made at East are all out there in the world attending universities ...  Read more

East was the worst of 3 high schools I've been to. The education was years behind many schools I'd been to. I found myself re-learning and re-reading ninth grade material as a senior. The majority of the students there WANT to learn, but are brought down by a small fraction of bad eggs who consistently ...  Read more

I loved East. I've been to 6 different high schools and this is by far my favorite. Every school has its flaws, but I noticed that if I asked for help, I would actually get it here. The teachers were nice, though I can't say that of some of the students, they are not what's important. While I attended ...  Read more

East probably has the worst rap for all the high schools in the area. Like most things in life we are only in the spot light for the few individuals who tend to be idiots (excuse the inappropriate but true title to give those students) and purposely cause trouble. East is almost never a first choice ...  Read more

I think that East High School is one of the best. Every different individual makes what they want out of school, if you don't like school then don't waste the taxpayers money and if you really like school then it doesn't matter where you go as long as you put your best effort into it. School is not bad, ...  Read more

East high is not the best school is the world because there are so many people who dont care about school at East. It's all about what you make it. If you exceed you can do realy good at east but if you dont care you will fail.
