East Rutherford High School serves a student body of which the majority is financially challenged. In our county unemployment is high and increasing. East High Schools performance is exceptional compared to other school in our system. I highly recommend East Rutherford High School to any future students.

I am a Senior at East Rutherford High School. East is not a bad school. It has its ups and downs. All schools do. The thing I like most about East is that we can get a scholarship from the school if we do all that is required to do. If you are looking for a school, East is a good choice.
