I think that East High is a good school, because they don't have anyone left behind in class, and if they do they help that person catch up. No one should say that they are bad.

Posted November 2, 2004

I am writing as a parent of a recent 2004 graduate and I also have a child who will graduate in 2006 and another child who will graduate in 2008. East High has been a wonderful educational experience for my children. East high has a positive diverse student body. The administration and staff are very supportive of students and their parents in the learning environment. Students are not just a face and student number. All three of my children have had positive experiences in the numerous extra curricular activities they have participated in. They will carry the friendships they have developed with their peers and teachers into adulthood. Many untrue myths still hang over our school. East High truly is the 'best kept secret in town'.
