Everyone is nice but the kids aren't learning much. The schools graduation rate is very low. In response the teachers have made the classes ridiculously easy. Kids can talk their way into or out of most things. This is a poor preparation for the real world. Staff members give kids internet passwords so they can get unfiltered access at school.
I'm currently a student here, and it's the most amazing school i have ever been to. I truly thrive in all my classes, the teachers are patient and are amazingly thoughtful. They all really care about you. They take time to get to know you and your learning habits. This school isn't just for kids who want to be in the filming industry (even though it has AMAZING hands-on courses), there's a very diverse crowd here, and it's great for musicians too! Every year you spend here, more and more drama sparks up, but you get used to it. No one chooses sides, the conflict is only between those invloved. the oppurtunities this school offers is amazing, and i think everyone should take advantage of it. This school is amazing!!!
My son is a senior in student government at East Hollywood. We were initially concerned because EH had a rep for taking in "last chance" kids. I told him he had to stand out and really excel if stayed and pursued his dream of being a film director, and he has. EH is to be commended for their no bullying policies and high standards. Their annual film, if you haven't seen one, is fantastic. Hamlet last year, The Odyssey this year.
This school is amazing!! I have been a student here for the past the past two years and there isn't any other high school I would want to go to in Utah. The teachers are awesome, they make the subjects they teach understandable and are all-around great people. I highly recommend this school to anyone, but those especially interested in film will fit in perectly.
