Teacher effectiveness: Very effective
Submitted by a community member · May 04, 2016
Very effective if they try. Very very ineffective in very few cases -- and these need to be managed out, but often aren't. Isn't that true of all public schools with unions?

Amount of homework: Just right
Submitted by a community member · May 04, 2016
I certainly wouldn't add more homework for the sake of homework. Does any school need to assign as much as it does? Probably not...

Overall:
Submitted by a community member · May 04, 2016
East is an uncommon school in Denver for its diversity, opportunity, and student-directed programs. There is lots for kids to take advantage of here, but your student has to ask for it, raise their hand, participate. Otherwise, possible to get lost.

Grateful to: Teacher
Submitted by a community member · May 04, 2016
I wish all teachers were exactly like Ms. Kristy Skarphol. She is tireless and creative in meeting kids where they are. We can't thank her enough for her dedication to making sure every student is seen and supported in the classroom!
