20 Parent Reviews for Central Dauphin East Senior High School

The issue with CD East lies within the school district. For years this school has been ignored by the district in favor of their sister school, Central Dauphin High School. When the school boundaries were last redrawn, the disparity between the two school became even greater, yet no one on the school ...  Read more

Unfortunately, my son who is a sophmore attends Cd East. He has always had difficulty in certain subjects and for some reason would have hoped that he would have received guidance from teachers and guidance couselors in order to help..you can forget it!! They are no help at all!! I attempt to touch base ...  Read more

As a graduate of East High I would like to say my high school education taught me a lot about the real world. I was exposed to a diverse environment and I am a much better person for it. I was very involved in arts, athletics, and student government. The teaching staff there is very understanding and ...  Read more

My step son moved into our home last year & we had to sign him up at East for his Senior year. My son went to a high school in Virginia for 3 yrs & notice this school was smaller & more crowded. When he started he was surprised to see so many students hanging in the halls even after the bell rang. Once ...  Read more

I had the opportunity to be at Central Dauphin East High School and at Central Dauphin High School. The Difference between the two high schools is heart wrenching. At East High teachers have to spend most of their time and energy on discipline rather than at teaching. Any teacher who can teach at East ...  Read more

I have sat in on classes in this school, and observed teachers that had no control over their class. The disruptive students were not disciplined, and the teacher would/could not remove them from the room. The students that were in the class that wanted to learn could not due to the incompetence of ...  Read more

The teachers are more concerned about marking a tardy than homework or teaching or addressing the real problems - traffic in hallways students blocking students, fights, blocking lockers. Homework holds very little weight and is rarely graded, which results in students not doing it at all and the teacher ...  Read more

I hate that I left my Senior at this school for four years. I'm now looking to pull my others from this horrible school district. It is not fair how the school board has drawn the lines between CDHS and CDEHS and created more inequalities at EHS. The administration has to face the problems and challenge ...  Read more

I am currently a teacher at this school, and I can tell you from experience that it is out of control. There is no presence of administration and the teachers are so overwhelmed with discipline problems that they do not stay long. What is sad is that there are a lot of really great students at this ...  Read more

I used to work there and you wouldn't believe the grade inflation that goes on. Students receive points for notebook/folder checks, they get stickers for participation and points for doing flashcards in class and these are high school students. Some teachers hardly give homework and some only assess ...  Read more
