The school is nice and good in most aspects. Everything is decent. The standards set are met. There are not too many issues with this school.
What I liked about East High was some of the bonds I built with some of my teachers. They would treat me like one of their daughters and they were also just so willing to help me with whatever assignment or any problem I may had. With this being my last year I know they will miss me and I'm pretty sure they will be sad that I'm leaving. What I also liked was the environment like I knew everybody and majority of my friends went there and I had classes with them so we made the best school years with each other and long term memories we could keep forever. One thing I would change about the school is the school spirit I wish everyone would support the school 100% and engage in activities like homecoming or prom or even the school student section. Honestly the school student section is my favorite thing but not a lot participate in it unfortunately. Another thing I would change is the dress code, I would want dress code to be appropriate instead of polo shirts and black and khakis pants.
Like the school a lot because the number of kids is not that high, so you able to create that one on one relationship with those who work here. Sports are average, not a lot of funding but they are working on it.
While at East High I played soccer, baseball, bowling and golf. I enjoyed being part of one of the oldest high schools here in Iowa. I liked being that school that we have always been see as a nobody however making a impact when other doubt us. Reasons being is when I played soccer our soccer program never won a game in 15 years until my senior year. We all put work and effort and we finally won a game and change the program as well as saved it. Just being in that atmosphere really made me realize that East High is a school where change can come if students enjoy being the change. One thing I would like to see different is the support in sports and other activists such as robotics. Reason being is there is a lack of funding toward those programs because everything goes to American Football and I believe that it should be shared among the whole school because in the end Waterloo East High is family bonded by the name Trojans.
East High is overall a pretty good school. The teachers that work there are exceptional! They truly care about the well being of their students and the passion they possess for their job is quite vivid. The vice principal is also outstanding. Although our sports teams aren’t that good, there is a lot of spirit especially during homecoming week!
East High School has been a great school for me. I have learned a lot about myself and others during my 4 years there. We have great school spirit and everyone is friendly. Something I would change would be more respect from students to teachers, and teachers opening up a little more so students can relate with them and build a relationship with them.
Great atmosphere and great teachers. Teachers care about each student and make sure they are ready for college. Lack of programs for advanced students. But overall great school.
I liked a few teachers, like Mr. Tracy and Mrs. Platte. I also liked the physical education and yearbook classes. I did not like that there wasn't very much school spirit throughout my four years. I also did not get challenged academically in all of my classes because some of the classes focused more on the students who couldn't keep up with criteria than advanced students.
East high is a good school coming from a smaller town it is not that bad. The school is not way to big and they offer lots of different classes. They even offer free college classes through hawkeye and uni.
I graduated from East High School in 2007. I was in AP classes so my peers were very focused on their educations and the AP teachers were excellent. The students in the regular classrooms struggled with disruptive students and not enough college preparation.
There are many extracurricular activities to choose from. They take all extracurriculars seriously
I feel that I fit in right away all the people at this school are very welcoming and nobody cares if you mess up.
All the teaches are great. They make sure every student understand the material before moving on. They all teach at the student's pace. They show every student how much they care for them. They give extra help when the students ask for it.
I think for the most part, during my highschool experience, i always had teachers i could go to if i needed, and most teachers i got along with
The health and safety policies at this school are average; however, this school makes is safe.
There are some extra activities; however, they could use some work.
The school is unique because there are a variety of ethnic groups throughout the school. One experience here at East High I will never forget was the time I needed extra help in my studies; the teachers I had at that moment helped me and never gave up on me.
