My child has excellent standardized test scores (90th percentile or higher) yet failed many classes. Teachers did not contact us about issues until it was too late to change grades and wouldn't let us know about upcoming work so we could keep our struggling student on track--very unprofessional.
my daughter just graduated from the Wauwatosa school system and East HS and had a tremedous high school career. Great educational and social activities with hard working staff and administration. A lot of parent involvement
East is a very academically competitive and enriching school. A large percentage of the students are on the honor roll and in my graduating class (2003) about 3/4 of the class graduated with honors. If you want your child to be challenged and be given the opportunity of having an enriching experience both academically and socially, East is the place to start. Excellent sports teams, top notch theater and arts courses, and wonderful teachers.
