English writing ACT test must be advised to every student. Without it no University will enroll your child. Overtaxed district. School is too crowded. Your child will not get education for the money you pay through property tax. Stay away from Lombard. Crowded with students who do not want to learn and achieve which may negatively influence your child even if you take great care of your kids.
I am so glad I stayed here all four years. Just graduated in 2008 and man there are so many great memories. I wish I can relive those years again. The teachers are great, very lively, involved and encouraging. I felt at home when I was at East. I always felt safe and sound. And also the neighborhood is very nice during spring and summer. I miss it too much,
East has a fantastic boys volleyball program. The coaches are awesome! ; both in really working their skills and keeping their drive positive. There is this fun comradery between all the levels of teams - they always cheer each other on - I love our varsity team!
My daughter is a junior and all 3 years has had very caring, dedicated, communicative teachers. Staff addresses issues promptly and the atmosphere is a positive, encouraging one for all students. Very impressive and much better than the local middle school.
If how they treat in-district homeschooled kids is any indication of how they treat their students, this is a miserable place. Now that my kids would like to attend a public high school I'm met with resistance by the guideance department. Unprofessional attitudes, messages not returned, and a refusal to meet with us or give a tour. Funny how they'll take my tax money but not my kids. I think I'll be going somewhere where the people actually care about the kids, not the money.
i am a graduate of gehs, and i loved it. the teachers loved to get involved, and most students are friendly. i met so many people there, and am glad i had the experience. gehs is very diverse and there are alot of opportunites to express yourself.
