I have been in East High for 3 years. Actually, the feeling was really amazing. East High is not only my first school in the United Stated but also is a place where taught the basic knowledge about English, Math as well as others. Come to East High, for sure you'll experience excitement, interesting from my school. Furthermore, you'll participate those activities, clubs or music bands that would take place every week or even every month. And do you know? My school was ranked in 7th best high school in Kansas last year. It's worth to admit to my high school. Let spend your beautiful youth in my school. Certainly, it won't let you be disappointed. Thank you for reading!

East High is the biggest high school and arguably the most diverse in the city. In my experience, there are many opportunities to take rigorous courses. Our school also offers International Baccalaureate (IB) classes. Although there is a noticeable division in the school between IB, Honors and Regular students everyone is friendly and accepting for the most part. The only complaints I have are the difference in expectations between IB students and RegEd students. The administrators and staff often treat Reg Ed students as if they don't care as much about their education as the IB kids do. Overall I have really enjoyed my time at this school, it is really easy to fit in because of the diverse student population.
It amazes me that the school is the largest yet the safety is top notch. The diversity of the school really prepares these kids for the "real world". Sports is great but they put grades first and that helps us parents out when showing them what matters first. Our son is in honors classes, plays soccer and basketball. It is a Great school for our son!
