I'm a student and let me tell you this school may look nice on the outside but it's pretty bad on the inside. Many teachers don't teach very well if at all. Teachers definitely play favorites. This school has many cliques so its VERY hard socially if you're a new kid like I was sophomore year. The reason I didn't give it one star is because it looks nice and they seems to keep it fairly clean.

As a former student, I miss East so much. I was at Clovis East for 3 years and while it does have its ups and downs, it is a lot better than my current school. The dress code is strict but for the good of the students. 80% of my teachers were amazing. It is always up to the student to put in the work and if you don't do it, you will obviously fail. The teachers give you what you need and then it's all up to you. The campus is beautiful and you can find friends in all corners. While there are always bad parts like in any school, I believe that this was a great school to attend.

Not to my expectations. A couple of my kid's teachers don't teach. If you care about your child's education, this is not the school for your child. Counselors don't help you or the student. They're always out of their office when my kid goes to see them. Horrible...will not be continuing with my other kids.

Clovis East has beautifully kept grounds and is one of the only schools in Clovis with a complete agricultural farm on campus. Academics are priority and students are given the resources necessary to excel. Teachers are great with parent communication and availability. Student dress-code and campus rules are strictly enforced and (in my opinion) overly so. Safety issues are one thing and certainly encouraged, however I have received phone calls for such concerns as hugs. Strange, indeed.

This school is way to strict with it's dress code. I get it's for the safety of the students but they push it to much. It sucks going to a school everyday thinking your going to get in trouble for your jeans having a tiny hole in them or your hair a centimeter below your eyebrows little stuff like that. Overall tho the school safety is good, and a few teachers care about the students.

CEHS is an OKAY school. But as a parent that wants best for there kids should reconsider. My son was made fun of because of the fact he was white with blond hair. CWHS or BHS is a first.

My school always encourages a sense of community. The staff is wonderful and they seem more like friends than teachers sometimes. There are amazing opportunities that prepare us for the future at every level including ROP and CART classes. The support for extracurricular activities are wonderful. I always feel safe when I'm there.

I am a former student of Clovis East and i enjoyed every mintue being there. I miss going to school there. The Student body is like a family. I was very invovled with all the activitys there and it made high school so much better. If i ever asked for help from a teacher i got it. I love that school and everything about it. THe school has passion, the sports team is amazing, the band is wonderfull. The student councill members do everything they can to make the students high school days more fun. I would reccommend Clovis East any day.

CEHS is an okay school. Many of the students are rude and the staff is overly-strict with dress code and often act like they don't care. The environment and vibe that the students give is isn't a comfortable one due to the fact the East is such a stereotypical school. There are few great teachers there, and as a student you should be extremely grateful if you get one. Overall, East is not the high school for you if you plan on being with several well-mannered students who appreciate education.

This is a good high school with good sports programs and ok teachers for most classes, but what is really great is the Ag teachers. We have one of the best farms in the nation! The ag teachers are great, they actually care about you in and out of the classes. This is probably the main reason I have not dropped out of school. I thought about it but decided to stay for the FFA stuff.

Terrible school... MOST teachers could care less, althoguh I'm sure thr reaeson is because parents do not teach their children to respect than the teachers are so sick of the attidude, they take it out on all of the students. I went to this school because it wasnew and I thoguht I wouldget a better education. Well, I didn't! Only good thing WAS with Eben. He kept all the different clicks friends with eachother. Only bad thing about him was he was much too leniant with dressw code. Which was geat when Mr. Martinez came in, but tht was when everyone started hating eachother.

CEHS has the lowest test scores of any CUSD high school. It has lots of AP courses and good facilities. Campus safety is very good. There are many outstanding teachers, especially in science and history. The language arts department and math are not as strong. Athletics are emphasized, and athletic facilities are primo, while the library is mediocre. Dress code is strict. Technology is an issue. Overall quality is acceptable but not excellent.

Academic programs are great. The school mostly focuses on English Language Learners and those who are socially disadvantaged. Not a good school for high achievers or those who strive for above average. Most parents have a 'that's good enough' attitude and don't encourage students to look towards college.

I am an allumni of Clovis East, my siblings are also attenting this school. As one of the first graduating classes. The principal, Mr. Eben, is a wonderful leader and a great visionary, he is well liked by staff and students. As for school departments, from my experience, The preforming arts is outstanding. I can personally vouch for the choirs, Dan Bishop, has in less than 2 years he has taken a very new program and created a powerhouse. At competitions we are always one of the best, depending on the competition command preformance has been won several times. On another note the Ag. department is awesome! We have the best facicities, better than most universities. The staff is very knowlegable, dedicated and more than qualified to teach. The science courses they offer are highly reccomended.

Clovis East has a great academic program. They have teachers that go the extra mile to help every student. Activites and sports program is great. I think that there are alot of parent involvement in all aspects of the program.

I feel Clovis East is a GREAT school...and is on it's way to a great future. Whenever I had a situation regarding my sons academic or athletic progress I have always been able to speak with an administrator. And...the Principal and Deputy Dean are always available if needed. CE is a young school and I believe they have done a great job so far. I recently moved to the Clovis High area and am currently trying to get interdistrict transfers for all my boys...so that they can attend this school in the future. Great Job...'CE' staff! Keep up the good work. NO...school is perfect.

Too much of a party school in my opinion. I really feel a majority of the students are more driven. Try schools like Buchanan if you want a great student population. I'm not sure why this school is like this, they are definatley not lacking in faculty. When I attended this school I had some of the best teachers in my life. I just found it hard to focus due to no one around me encouraging me.

We moved to Clovis primarily for the great schools system. Clovis East High School unfortunately was the lowest rated high school in Clovis. Very disappointed. It has low test scores, mainly hmong students and uncaring administration. Most teachers are wonderful and caring of the students. Office staff is rude and often will allow a parent to stand in the office for long periods of time without helping. I have emailed the principal with questions and never received any return email ever. The school seems to cater to ethnic students with many classes and programs focused on minorities. It's a great school if that is the kind of help you need. For students who speak english well, since birth, or do well academically, there is simply no programs or growth or other students to be with. The other Clovis high schools are not like this.

Last year I went to Clovis East and overall I think it was a pretty good school. The unlimited activities they have there is amazing. But I do agree with some of the other responses. The ethnic diversity and social diversity is ultimately out of control. There is so many different groups of people who seperate themselves due to race or just in the social categories. I had alot of fun there. And it's a great school, academically. But every school does have it's problems.

I have never been associated with such a nonsupportive group of people in my life. No longer does Clovis have to worry about their cliques of people - they can't even get them to volunteer. The management is embarrassing both on and off the campus. All of the staff and administration need to abide by the dress code if the kids have to. Some of those outfits are questionable to say the least. The diverse type of students at the school are not addressed. If you aren't a football player you don't exist. Its simply pathetic the way 'other' students are treated. I have 7 months to go until my baby is graduated and all I can say is THANK GOD!

I am currently a Junior at Clovis East. It's the best school to be in at this time. Our Ag department is the best out there, the teachers, councelors, and even the principal are very involved with the students. There is always something fun and interesting going on. You have to be a rock not to enjoy going to this school. The years are flying by too fast. I'm really going to miss it when I graduate in 2005.

I graduated from Clovis East High School's first graduating class in 2003. The principal is very involved in everything on campus, the teachers love what they are doing and care about their students and there are many extracurricular opportunities there. I loved my experience there, I would not have wanted to go to any other school.

Clovis East has a long way to go. The Ethnic diversity of the school is highly mixed and yet there is so much racism in the school. It is unfortunate that this issue isn't really addressed. I moved to the Clovis area believing that my children will have more educational opportunities and now I feel otherwise.

My son attends this school and loves it. I like it because the teachers are always updating me on my child's performance, whether it be good or bad. The principal there is awesome.
