I loved my 4 years at East High School! Not only did they offer a variety of AP and Honors courses, they made it easy to become involved in the school through extracurricular activities. I was able to start my own club, compete at nationals for constitutional law, and form friendships with a diversity of people. Advisors and teachers were always eager to help me with any academic problem I had, no matter how big or small. The school truly comes together at sports events to support fellow student athletes. Anything is possible when you are an angel!

East high school is the perfect place for anyone who wants a little bit of everything. There are great teachers who make learning fun and enjoyable, while at the same time no other public school in Colorado matches the angel spirit. With over 2,500 students, no matter where you go, there will always be a new face you have never seen before, and there is a place for anyone to fit in. I have enjoyed myself at East high school from the challenging, yet rewarding STEM classes to my fun and diverse art classes. After four years I am well prepared for college because of the resources available and connections I have made thus far. Once an angel always an angel!
East High School, in my humble opinion, is the best high school in Colorado. The balance of academics, sports life, and the arts is something that is unique to East. However, due to its size, it's not for everyone. Its easy to get lost in the cracks, but if you find a community within East High School, you will succeed. Many teams from East High School are successful. This includes, but is not limited to the Rugby team, the Speech and Debate team, the Constitutional Law Team, the Soccer team, and the Volleyball team. The Arts are very valued at East High School. For example: the Choir department has over 300 students. Not only that but East is very diverse, both racially and socio-economically. Once an Angel, always an Angel.
