I loved the vibe of The Central Dauphin East High School, and their guidance to my education and my health and my comfortableness.m They have amazing teachers and awesome guidance counselors who are always willing to help when you need it. They are there to guide you through things you are unsure of, and willing to help you through your tough times.
One of the best collections of student diversity with supportive and encouraging staff from the principals all the way down to the janitors. Strong education is given and outside opportunities in clubs and sports and such are easily accessible.
School is diverse and good. remote learning could use some work. otherwise teachers are great. online learning platforms could use an overhaul.
I love East High and I am glad it was the high school I was able to attend. My favorite thing must be the divercity. East High had around 16 different languages spoken by students and students fro 22 different countries. Only around 20% of the school is white. I also loved the arts department, if you ask colleges in Central PA they say that East High's arts programs are on the same level as CASA (Capital Area School of Arts) that is well known for it's amazing arts programs. Over all I loved attending East High and wouldn't change the school I attended for anything.
Overall received a great education that got me ready for college life. Glad I was able to attend a school where I have made life long friends and enjoyed becoming a 2020 graduate from. Glad I am an East High alumni for life.
I enjoyed my time at the school. It is a very diverse school and has a large range of academic, athletic, and extracurricular opportunities for all the students. The administration throughout the school were determined to get all students involved in some way, even to the point of making block schedules for students to have the freedom of choosing courses and activities they were really interested in and could enjoy. But the best part of the school is the music and art program. I was specifically part of that section, being a violin player in the orchestra and helping out with the musical. The school does a great job with putting up many music related performances and does a great job with fundraising so that music students could go on trips and acquire scholarships. I truly enjoyed my time at CD East.
The thing I like about East High is how diverse it is. Within our school, you'll find lots of people with different interests and backgrounds. You can always find someone to talk and connect with. To me, I also enjoy having a diverse friend group where we all can discuss different topics and respect opposing opinions.
My experience at East was great! It is know for such diverse and educated students. The staff prepare you for the real world and for college. They do as much as the can to make sure their students are successful.
I went to this for four years and enjoyed every single moment of it, the teachers here are really friendly.
I am a Junior as of right now, will be a senior next year. As far as about the school, it's very a very good school, lots of opportunities. Teachers are wonderful and very helpful they teach you until you clearly understand. What I like about Central Dauphin East High School is that no matter how hard the class is you will always receive help from any kind of teacher. The change I want to see is having more security in the building.
It’s a great diverse environment. It’s a place that makes you want to succeed and be great. It’s a loving place where all are accepted . The school spirit is the best thing about the school. When someone talks bad about the school the whole school will rise up and rep East High. It has some of the best teachers you will ever meet. They teach more than just education, they teach us how to be better people and how to be great people in the world. You will not walk out if there the same way you went in and I mean that in the best way.
What I most liked about East High was the diversity of staff and students. Mr. Turner on the G floor making history come alive, the school mom Mrs. Clark-Grubb keeping everyone in check on the second floor. As far as the students go, you can find all types of people from different backgrounds. One thing that really shows that is our flag walks when the students carry their home country's flag and walk the gym with pride. All in all I couldn't have asked for a better high school experience with better people.
I am a senior at East High School. I have spent my life in Dauphin County School District and everyone talked about how East high was a eccentric school and how I would have fun and learn and that happened ten fold. Sports is amazing all inclusive and gives you a feeling of comfort and worth to be apart of rich history and a new family. The friends I made will last a lifetime and the teachers there made me feel like they cared about my feelings and education more than my grades. The only problem I could think is people ruin the fun with immature activity but the all in the family feel makes me love this school and a great alumni.
I loved the teachers, the students, and the music program. Things that could change would be to how much they were always trying to change things and just let school be a regular school.
Central Dauphin is a really great school. They have lots of activities that you can go to without worry about how to get home(only have to worry about games). They provide way more than any other school I've been to. The only real problem I had with this school is that they don't understand that some children aren't exactly allowed to participate because it's a "waste of time," for one or both of their parents. I had o drop out of three activities my Freshman year because my mother wouldn't take me anywhere and since I was new to the state, I didn't know where to go.
Central Dauphin East High is a very diverse school with lots of opportunities for sports and extracultural activities for the students. I felt that my daughter has strived in her interactions, she plays soccer, play the cello in orchestra, is involved in the Tri-M group and even has honors in her Latin Club. With the counselors and teachers routing for her, I believe she has gotten that push to succeed.
My experience was very enjoyable. The school is very diverse and I was able to make a lot of friends during my time there.
