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.

East High School is such an amazing high school because of how diverse the environment is and how much the teachers and staff really do care about their students' success during these important years. Instead of the average textbook-using teaching method that may bore students to death, the teachers here have unique personalities that entertain each class by teaching in a way that gets every student involved and willing to learn the content. Counselors are always eager to support curious students and give us students good amounts of resources we can use in order to gradually improve ourselves and the community. Not only that, parents are also willing to contribute to our school events and opportunities as East High School values teamwork and respectful mindsets. I love being a student here and would very much recommend this school, since it really opened my eyes on life.
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!
