I believe that this school brought it back all my hopes, my daughter as a especial needs has the help there that I never had in other schools in MA, she attended especial needs programs in other cities and they are not even close to the staff at the East Boston High, thank you so much for everything, God bless you guys all.

East Boston School has a very strang leader our Headmaster has his hand in everything that goe's on in that school. I am sure if you would take the time to meet with him and the staff. When a staff member will go out of his way or her's to help a child in need They are there for them. The school's guidence office is the best. If it was not for the family center alot of kid's and parent's would be lost. A child need's to want an education and go to school in order to follow their dream's. School is not a prison. Parent's need to be involved in what is going on with the child and with the school. Talk to the teacher's, House Dean's, Guidence office.You would be surprised at the out come. Join the S.P.C.come to a meeting . You are a parent you are already on it.Don't Juge a book by it's cover . Come and take a tour of the school. Call the family center make an appointment .

I attend East Boston High as a sophmore, and personally this school is terrible. The teachers are a mess, and the school itself is disgusting. the students attending are bad influences. I am happy to say I am transferring out of this school :)

I went to this school. Was doubted my whole time there You were labeled the minute you walked in there. If you aren't tough don't come to this school. S House was the best house to be apart of.

I will say is not the best school to go to. The discipline needs to be reinforce while being fair to each individual student, and the teachers need to be monitored closely.

This school is a Class Act. They go above and Beyond any other school in the City but BLS. The Athletics are 2nd to none. There is something for everyone and with the outside help from the Local Boston Police Dept they keep a extra eye on your Child. Your Child can advance with your help and the Help of one of the Best Schools in the City.

I am a student in East Boston High School and unfortunalely, if you're searching for a school to let your child go to, dont pick this one. Most of the students in this school aren't involved in school at all, but not all of us are bad. I'm counting down the days until I graduate so that i can move on. There indeffinatley are more prestigious schools in the greater Boston area your child can go far in.

The family that this school creates is like no other that I have been to! It's fabulous, especially for a urban public school.

An excellent school. The teachers and staff are caring and understanding. The guidance dept. goes over, above and all out for their students. As a BLA transfer, they made my daughters transition into EBH smooth and rewarding. I only wish I made the move sooner. There is clearly a team effort at EBH. Everyone is treated equally and with respect. I would recommend this school to anyone who wants to succeed. The staff at EBH will help you do just that.

eyo, this school is the definition of illmatic. the teachers are nice and understanding and the staff is too. the principal is also a very understanding individual himself. He knows about the strugles because he is a brother and he is an exellent leader. this school is truly one of a kind.
