The school is good, but could be a lot better. The administration does not know how to schedule quizzes/tests/exams to allow the students to do their best. Making kids take multiple quizzes/tests/exams on one day, when it could be spread out by simple scheduling guidelines such as which subject or course type can have quizzes/tests/exams on which days of the week. We all want the kids to do better, so the school can get into compliance with the No Child Left Behind Act.

Leyden is a good school but they need to work on some things. There are all types of teachers some are better than others. Even if teachers are considered to be role models I believe they still make mistakes. It is normal to make mistakes because is our nature of being humans. I believe that they should help there student more often and more then they already.

It may seem harsh giving this school a low rating but I currently attend here and I don't find anything real special about it. You have the kids that judge you and the teachers.. Some actually teach while some don't and for juniors and seniors they don't really give support for college. I wasn't too thrilled at all with this school.

This school is the best. I love it here, the teachers respect you if you respect them. Homework is substantial. And here at East, we have over 50 clubs! And over 15 sports!

This is a great school for many reasons. The classes offered here are varied, and they offer challenging honors and AP classes. No matter which kind of class you're in, though, teachers expect a lot out of you. 80% of the the teachers here (if I remember correctly) have their masters degree, and they know their stuff. Leyden high school is one of the highest paying school districts in the state, so they expect a lot from the teachers they employ--and they do a fantastic job. Teachers here truly care about the students, but sometimes students don't take advantage of the education they are getting-- but this happens at every school, right? The school offers TONS of extracurriculars, and they also have a phenomenal ACT Prep program here (which helped raise my ACT score by 4 points). I'm proud to be a graduate of East Leyden High School. I truly learned a lot, and I was well prepared for college.

Trying to maintain high standards but with a high ESL program it is difficult. Extracurricular activities are many and vaired. Anything a highschool aged person could be interested in is offered...from sports to chess clubs. Something for all ethnic groups too. Parental involvement is always welcome

East Leyden High School is an average school. Recently, there have been changes in the teaching staff as many of the older teachers have retired. Their test scores compared to other area high schools are lower and they do not focus the child on obtaining a college education.

My son was attending this school for two years(2000-2002).It was the best school any of my children was ever going to. Great teachers, and principle. Maybe parents should be more involved in activities in school and progress.
