Regardless of test scores, this school has quality teachers, and does the best with the budget it has. Failures of students and testing thes days has little to nothing to do with most schools, it is entirely the PARENTS failure. Parents today expect the schools to 100% raise their kids, and it is to the downfall of society in general.

Eastmont High School is a great school. It is not the teachers or students fault for low WASL tests. Partents must be accountable for their students learning also. I received a great education that prepared me for college very well. I would like to especially recommend and thank Mrs. Addelman, Mr. McRae, Mrs. Davidson, Mr. Lambert, and many others for pushing me to reach my goals. - Casey Pearson

At Eastmont High School the curriculum is of excellency. not only do the teacher enjoy teaching what they teach, but they get into what they teach to their students. Teachers and parents both are a big part in the school. Parents and teahcers are really the ones that teach what the students need to know, one may teach them at school, and the other at home, but they are just as much a part of Eastmont as the other. Sports are a big thing for Eastmont, Exspecially Football, and Wrestling. there are siging classes, instrumental classes, orchastra classes, and many many more.

The poor quality of the education received at Eastmont High School can be found in its long history of poor performance on the W.A.S.L. and the Iowa Achievement tests for the past 20 years. The test averages in all areas remains low with few if any individual years where scores will sometimes meet or barely exceed the 50th percentile. In the more difficult academic areas like math and science, the scores remain far below the 50th percentile. It has one of the highest failure rates for a school with its individual demographics and population. It does have a fine music department but that department is not as well funded as the athletic department. Unfortunately P.E. grades do inflate an individual's g.p.a. The truth and reality is they contribute very little to prepare the individual student for the technological world that will be their future.

I attended this school recently and I enjoy the way the school works and interacts. The teachers do a great job teaching and watching students.

It is unexcusable to have the low WASL test scores; however, it is not surprising with the quality of work expected from the students. My kids graduated from Eastmont High School and with the exception of the honor classes, they did not prepare the students for college, or the real world. I think the WASL or a similiar test is necessary to make the students accountable and also the teachers accountable.

Mr.Cadman teaches World History and US History. He does a very good job at helping students understand those points in history. I beleve he is one of the best history teachers at that school.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 Washington used the High School Proficiency Exam (HSPE) to test students in reading and writing in grade 10. Math skills are tested by the End-of-Course (EOC) exams. The HSPE is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Washington. The goal is for all students to score at or above the state standard.
