I graduated from East High School back in 2007. I am now a graduate from the Rochester Institute of Technology and i owe it all to East High School's Academy of Information Technology. The AOIT at East High School helped prepare me for college by providing me with a great introduction to technology (computer programming, computer hardware and software, animation, game development, and much more). I love the AOIT program at East. The teachers are amazing and very dedicated to their students. Even to this day, I keep in contact with my AOIT teachers.

I think that the school has majorly gone down hill. Its seems like the kids control that school.

East High has many great programs going for it. Unfortunately some stuents do not take advantage of them. I will be the first to state that they have problems BUT if a student really wants to learn and make something of themselves, there is no better school. As a former counselor at East, I know that the majority of students that attend really want to learn. Also many of the teachers are the most caring individuals that you will ever know. I still keep in contact with many of my former students, some that graduated nearly 20 years ago. As the saying goes 'EAST HAS IT ALL'.

I think that east high school is a great school. It seem that we only get recognized for the bad things that we do and not the good thing or our good programs I mean, yes our school does go threw it but so does every other school. We had one incident and know our school is like in the top 10 of bad school. It Seems as though city schools are the main schools put into the news...what about the schools in the suburbs...what are they perfect or are there schools paying the media so people wont know. I truley do think east is a great school... we have great teachers and great programs..but soon we may not even have great programs if city schools keep getting our programs cut.

Loved east high when my daughter went there. Can't say enough good things about the school and teachers. Biggest asset that east high has is mr. Vega. What an amazing man to help children like he does. He is still a big part of my daughter life today 3 yrs after graduating in 2006. Anyone that says city schools don't do enough for the kids they don't know what their talking about. Great job east. Thanks for getting my daughter full tuition to keuka!!! she is on deans list for the third year in a row.

I am a senior at East High School and I used to love this school. I would look forward to coming into the building every day, but recently, I have not been quite as excited to go to school for fear of my safety. Since the new policy with no out of school suspension, all of the most misbehaved children are left in school. They roam the halls and make it nearly impossible to learn. When the school was on lockdown, I was not surprised that this could happen. A gun in my school didn't even faze me. It is pathetic that students should worry about being killed in their school. This school has gone downhill. I would think twice before sending a child to this school in the future.

I am a current 11th grader at East High school and I think this is a pretty good school. It is composed of about 19 AP classses, 6 special career programs and so many extra curricular activites. It has great diversity and the teachers are very intelligent.We do have a huge problem with fighting though...

I am an East High alumni--I graduated just least year. I currently attend the University of Rochester and although East taught me some valuable things about life and diversity, I wouldn't say it was anywhere close to being academically rigorous. There is a terrible problem with violence and intolerance and honestly I ceased to feel safe at school. Ontop of that I was not academically prepared to face the rigors of college. I love my alma mater, but I regret receiving a terribly sub par education.

Large amount of AP courses. Great opourtunity for students who wish to follow more specialized occupations such as nursing, education, or emergency services. Overall, a great school!

At East High School there are many academic programs avalible including a fire fighters program, NJROTC, Model UN, Mock Trials, and many more. All are very fine programs that help our children in their young journy through life. The sports at East are among the best in the county. The basketball and football teams continue to rise among the rest in their winning. Unfortunetly, the parent involvment is not quite up to par at all. This is mainly because of the lack of discipline in todays world among parents.

This is my daughter's first year at East HS and I am finding this school great. The RASA program ROCKS. I think more schools should have a program like RASA. Also I find the teachers to be very involved in the education of their students. You can tell by the frequent updates on how your child is performing and what needs to be done if anything. They also take the time to reward students for positive performance. These teachers give the students incentive to do better. Lastly, I am impressed with the level of security thus far and hope the sentries keep up the good work. I do believe that this all stems from a great leadership team. But let's not leave out the parents. We must be do something right to be able to sit here and type these words. Thumbs Up!

Even though I will no longer be going to East, I wish everyone the best! East High has the best programs in the city. They have plenty of sports to go around and plenty of extracurricular activities. I know when I went there, I did just about everything and I loved it. The teachers are great, the school is great.

I LOVE this school! It has been perfect for my education and i am a senior. I have been here for 4 years and i will miss it when i graduate. Teachers are always there for you when you need them and everyone knows you. Teachers help when you need it and I feel very safe here.. I love the diversity as well.
