Even though it is a school that can manage to fit 2,500 students, once you find your groove it's a phenomenal school. All the teachers know what they are doing and are also welcoming to all students. You will for sure develop several strong relationships with teachers and even after the student has graduated, they'll always come back. The administration is also very good at keeping the school safe for everyone. You will see some of them riding around in golf carts around the campus talking with students and such. And the friends you will make will be with you for a lifetime, whether you keep in touch with them or contact them later in life. East High School is an amazing school and I wouldn't trade my experience for anything else. Go Angels!

I have two students at East, a senior and a sophomore. They are very different learners but they're both having excellent experiences at East academically, socially, and with sports. There are so many teams, clubs, and groups. The teachers are amazing. I believe they are getting the best education in Colorado in the arts, science, English, world language and social students. Several of the teachers have doctorates! It has a university feel and a gorgeous campus too.
I started East my junior year of high school. At first it was super scary because making new friends as a junior can be super hard. the environment of East was so chill and the beautiful building was an amazing experience. The atmosphere of East is super inclusive. There aren't giant cliques like most high schools. You can be a part of 5 different types of personally and fit in with everyone. The teachers are very inclusive and open to working with kids from all backgrounds. The school itself is super helpful to kids who aren't as financially capable as some others. The kids have so much school spirit and you can really tell that everyone who attend is proud of being an angel!
