Eastside has had its ups and downs - my son has graduated #4 in his class and excepted to UCLA - hopefully the school concentrate on the top ten students instead of the selective for funding and scholarships - its not all Eastside it is based on what is out there for the funding - its is sad to see a student with a 4.8 GPA, Future leader, Eagle scout and putting up with the immaturity around him - PARENTS PLEASE BE MORE INVOLVED WITH YOUR CHILDS and turn eastside into at least a 8 on the rating!

It's nice looking alright but the school rating of 3 out of a possible 10 says it all! I can't put my finger on what's wrong exactly but there isn't much real learning going on here, according to the test scores and help isn't easy to get here. There will be a new principal this semister so we'll see if there is any change in the school climate. There is a band program dying to grow, but not much money is thrown toward them being able to keep the instruments in good repair. Maybe the new principal will be more interested in Music than the previous one. Music is very important for kids and they come from Middle School band ready to play. We're surrounded by schools with good Music programs and we need to be able to compete. Parents, Support Your Band!.

Eastside High School has great facilities and a handful of good AP teachers. Other than that the communication between employees and administration is non-existence. My daughter has been in GATE classes since elementary school it was a big schock to learn that even her seventh and eighth grade were more challenging. They are not even capable of doing accurate and effective calculations for a graduation. As a result of being an underachieving school Eastside High School was given 3 million dollars 2 -3 years ago. We were never able to figure out what new programs were implemented at the school. I was told that 15 minutes were added in the beginning of the school day but quite frankly those 15 or sometime 10 minutes were just social or eating time. So where is the logic and academic benifit in that? My daughter graduated ranked # 1and she will be attending UCLA. The extraordinary organizational skills that we found at a school like UCLA made us realized how mediocre and unefficient Eastside High School really is. I think that the real problem in this district are undeserved administration promotions. The good and effective administrators usually end up leaving.

This school is great, your student can get a good education and succeed. Thestudents have to work at it as with everything, nobody is going to give it to them, alot of the comments seem negative, any time my family has had an issue we spoke with staff or the principal and the issue was taken care of, you have to be actively involved in your childs education.

I am a proud parent of an Eastside Lion. She has done great things at this school and has over come her learning disabilities and peer issues. This would not have been possible at the school closest to our house. The staff is wonderful and now we have a brand new campus with state of the art green technology. We might still be under construction but then again so are our kids.

This school is a prodomitaly african american school and full of culture in many ways. It is surrounded by nicely manicured new neighborhoods. The Office staff are polite and extremly helpful. The teaching staff are eager to help the students and the parents stay focus and excel. I was truly impressed on how they coordinate parent and teacher meetings. There is a round table assinged to each student for 30 minuts. All of your students teachers sit at that table at the same time to go over how to better help your student make the grade. I have twins and it made life easier because I did not have to 12 classes to speak with the teacher On the other hand they do not enforce the dress code and I dont think they have an exceptable policy on cell phones and other non educational products in school.

My two children have been going to Eastside High since it started. I like this school. The teachers are great. This year will be so special to the first class of 2009 to graduate from this school. I just can't wait to see the school finish. I only have one problem with the food they serve. I would like to see more healthy meals and snacks. No more soda machines and frozen microwave food. The children need a fruit machine and warm meals.

Eastside appears to focus on sports more than academics. The administration tends to blame the quiet, none confrontational kids if they are victimized by the kids who are not at school to learn. In addition, it is a nightmare to drop off and pick up your children because there are only a couple of open gates. On top of that, there is daily harrassment of parents trying to drop their kids off by the police trying to make their monthly quota. I would not recommend this school if there is another option for your child.

i think this school is great. My kids have been going there since they were freshmen, and their going to be the first up and coming junior class. They enjoy the undiscriminational environment. They say there tired of the bungalows though.

My child is also a new 9th grader. I also hope as the year progresses that all of the teachers begin using the edline. This is a great tool for the parents to stay in touch with their children s educational progress.

My daughter is a new 9th grader at Eastside. The school seemed as other schools in rural areas. It is nice to see her in a school setting that is not a huge, institutional-looking building. However, I was dismayed by the soda pop available to students. I work hard to express the need for healthy meals and snacks. Perhaps the administration will reconsider this option for students.
