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!

I am a sophomore at Wichita East High School and I absolutely love it. I am a student in the IB program. I can't speak for the normal general ed in the school, as I'm not it, but I've still seen amazing results from the rest of our school. Our school has pretty good sports teams but our true strength lies in academics. For example, our debate & forensics squad is nationally recognized. Our Scholars Bowl team has had state wide success. The Science Olympiad team also has had state level success. Etc. This program is extremely rigorous and challenging but is worth the hard work. The school is extremely diverse, with large Latino, African- American, and Asian populations. The teachers in the IB program have very high expectations but also offer enormous amounts of help and guidance. Additionally, the inclusive and empowering culture of the student body is absolutely amazing. If you're looking for a diverse, inclusive, and challenging high school experience, this is the school for you!
East high is a very diverse school! Almost every month we have a day where we can celebrate our diversity! There are so many wonderful classes taught by wonderful teachers. Our Drama program is always at the top of their game! Our sports teams are always supported by their piers win or lose! The technology and engineering classes are useful and effective! Everyone is so friendly including the staff! At East high we're like a huge blended family, of all types of cultures, races, and languages! Teachers encourage all students to be their best!
