I am a former student of East High School. I graduated with the Class of '61 & we had a phenomenal teaching staff who cared about us & gave us the very best education possible. I am indebted to those wonderful teachers who gave so much to the student body those years from 1958 - 1961. Teachers like Lorraine Bowman, Catherine Collins, Mamie Edwards, Leona Facer, Valentine Gorlinski, Darrel Palmer, Dorothy Smith, Lynn Warner, Nena Hawkes & Darrell Josie who taught me how to drive. I'm very proud to be associated with such a fine high school & excited that East High was chosen for The High School Musical films!

As a previous home-schooler, I was very nervous to re enter the public school system after a 4 year hiatus and after moving here from out of state. However, East High School has been very welcoming and my worries subsided within the first week of school. Of each of my 8 teachers, there is not a single one who doesn't care about the success of their students. The student body is surprisingly diverse and there are virtually no problems with cliques or bullying. East has also worked diligently to accommodate students such as myself who wish to attend seminary. The school has excellent athletic programs and an overall efficient way of doing things. The counselors and other faculty do all they can to help you and move you to success, just like the teachers. If you try your best, if you want to be exposed to a wide variety of cultures, and if you want to go to a school where a famous movie was filmed, then East High is the place for you.

East High School is the best school I have ever gone to. The teachers are laid back, fun, and know how to get things done. There are a lot of class options and the school is in a great location. I miss everything about East.

East High is a good school. Our new principal is simply amazing! He knows how to motivate the facilty and the student body to become a better version of themselves. The only down side to our school that I experience is that the Women's sports teams and the Drama dept are never appriciated in our school and society.

I would say this is a great school It has awesome students and faculty and a lot of school spirit. I am a senior there and I have had lots of fun at East and I would love to be there for another year. It makes me sad though that one of my favorite teachers left. School doesn't feel the same as it did last year.

This is a great school. I went there to see their school production, High School Musical, and everyone was so nice and courteous. They also are very clean.

I have worked with many different schools and East High is among the best. With a new principal this year, the school has an new feel and energy. There are a lot of new programs going into place this year to help all levels of students. It is a very student focused staff. East High is at a very exciting place.

I have had students at East for 8 years and I have watched this school change quickly....for the worse! The good teachers are leaving, the students are becoming apathetic and traditions are disappearing! You can get an OK education if your child is motivated.....but for the average kid....you will be disappointed. East High has truly become an inner-city school with all the inherent problems!

I am extemely disappointed in the performance of this high school. My child is not involved in sports or any other extracurricular activity, and was 'lost' in this school. Teachers can't seem to hold students' interest in learning. Sad.

My son was in special ed and my daughter was an over acheiver at EHS. In both cases, teachers gave each one special attention. They were both challenged and stimulated, each according to their needs, abilities and temperments. My son has social skill deficits that results in poor relationships with his peers. The environment fostered at EHS was very positive for him. It was the best school experience he had. The level of education of the parents in the EHS area is high and reflected in the students. There is enough variety and challenge to keep a smart student interested.

East High School is diverse and rich in culture. East has great programs to offer honor roll students as well as students with a little more help in tutoring. They have a great staff of teachers with great passion for education.
