I really liked my teachers but a lot have left. The athletics are good but we don't have as many resources as other schools in the area. I have heard that Tosa East is going downhill. Did not prepare me well for college. However, I LOVE the art program and Fred as the teacher ensures that it will continue to be amazing.
I've loved my time at East thus far! I've made fantastic friends, as well as many fantastic memories. I've had an academic track that was well suited for me, and found many extracurriculars to participate in. I think it is the perfect example of a school that is what you make it, so whatever type of student you are (or your child is), that is something to consider. My only personal complaints would be these: 1) That the focus of a decent part of the student body is not a primarily academic one, and 2) That I was not driven or encouraged by counselors, teachers, etc, to my full potential throughout my first few years. The second one actually worked out to my advantage, because I was able to realize how I could make myself what I hoped to be by my own prerogative. There are other little things I would change, but all the same, I would pick East again every time!
