East High School Reviews

I'm a senior at East, class of 2020, a permanent resident, and this is the first time I've been in a school in America because I'm straight from my home country ( Asia) to Kansas City to settle. My resume, I am from a High School for the Gifted in my home country, in a specialized math class. As you know, Asians have a high standard in education, so, in general, this school is not for those who have been educated in the Asian way like me. Honestly, if you don't want to fall into the same situation, delve into the school you'll study before coming there and then being disappointed and regretting.

I loved the diversity of East High School because there are so many cultures but one home. The relationship between students and teachers is great because more times than not, students develop a friendship and a foundation of trust. Teachers show enthusiasm about their subjects and encourage students to get out of their comfort zone preparing them for the adult life and real world.
What I like about my school is that it have a variety of culture and diversity, there are people from almost everywhere in the world, also I can learn from them; another thing is the clubs after school such as art club, bike club , football , dance and another bounch of them.
One thing that East can be better is the foot and the luch staff, also I think that is not only the school but the district system, it can be better,for example,some of the students their grades are wrong, or the classes can't be chage that easily even if you don't need the class, you need to se the counselor but the teachers can't sent you, I think it is difficult to find the cousuleor, but everything else I think is fine .
