I loved Eastside but not the hours. I am so glad that I had the oppurtunity to attend Eastside. I am currently in college and I am realizing that attending this school helped me better prepared for college. =)

Eastside and its faculty are an absolute blessing for East Palo Alto. The faculty is completely dedicated to opening up their students to their full potential. Teachers are all highly qualified and focused on their students. There is a caring, family-like atmosphere. The campus is college-like, safe and inspiring. There are on-campus dorms and the school is staffed 24/7.

I think Eastside is the best thing that could have happened to my daughter. Although it is a small school it is still mighty by far.

About these ratings

The Community Rating is the school’s average rating from its community members (e.g., parents, students, and school staff). The highest possible rating is five stars; the lowest is one star.

We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Unlike public schools, private schools are not always required to report data about their schools or not required to take the same tests as public schools. Many private schools take different standardized tests; however, that information is often made available only to families of enrolled students. We strive to acquire additional private school data whenever available.
