I love everything about this school but most importantly my child loves it! Staff are very friendly and are always available if you have any questions. There is so much support regarding homework help or study groups for kids. There are so many opportunities for kids overall and the principal, Mark is truly outstanding! I would highly recommend this school.

I absolutely love East Side! Mark the principal is beyond amazing! Every single teacher, staff member and afterschool staff are outstanding. There’s so much opportunity for kids here. There’s always communication and much parent involvement which is key to a great education.
East Side Community High School is a brilliant school to develop young minds. A largely unique inner urban school experience, the school requires students to learn how to present their ideas and thoughts to adults and peers. Led in the classroom by passionate teachers students can connect and rely on their teachers to help them develop the characteristics of an upstanding citizen and individual; an important aspect of every young persons education.

A school located in New York's rich LES, the most notable features of the school that have stuck with me throughout my 6 years of education there have been the teachers and the emphasis on communication within a group while maintaining ones individual personality.
