This is my third year at East and overall I'd say I enjoyed my time here. The staff here are great and they really do care about their students, even the most difficult ones and yes there are a few. East is such a diverse school, in fact the most diverse school in the nation, and we take pride in ourselves because of it. What I like about this school is that they are very welcoming to all cultures and aspects of life. Students here have every opportunity to achive their academic goals. With after school tutorings to clubs to programs and different resources, there is no excuse for any student to not recieve help in school. I'm actually proud to call myself an East high T-Bird. Yes, this school needs a few improvements, cause lets face it, not all school are perfect and East diffintly isn't, but that doesn't mean the school is great either.

I attended East High School for all 4 years of my high school career, my experience was great. I made friends very quickly, and with east being so diverse I was able to learn about many different cultures. I am very happy I went to East High, I can't imagine going to any other school in the Anchorage School District. To make matters even better, I believe East High has the most school spirit and holds the true meaning of community.
East Anchorage High School is one of the most diverse schools in the U.S, and you see it every where. So many clubs and after school activities are about embracing cultures and languages of all types are heard in the halls.
The SWS teachers are amazing, and so are many of the other teachers in the building.
There are fights every once in a while but big ones aren’t common, and it is for the most part a safe environment.
