Student involvement at East is great! Many students enjoy going to school related events such as sports games, and theater productions. We have great school spirit!
Review East High School
Overall, West Chester East was an accepting and welcoming school which offered challenging classes. It was also a good size school but you still knew everyone in your grade. It is nice to see familiar faces!
Some teachers are very devoted, but some are obviously passing the time until they can retire. Some don't even seem to LIKE being around kids at all!
