Alum: Going into high school I didn't know what to expect, but on my first day of freshman year I was greeted by a tunnel of upperclassmen welcoming us to the school. I thought it was weird then, but looking back it made the first day more exciting and helped me feel more comfortable about going here. Academically I always felt the teachers wanted to get the best from me and would help whenever I asked. The teachers I had throughout my four years were great and not just at teaching they were also really good people. I also played two sports at East. I played hockey and soccer. In my time at East these were the two most popular sports. Our teams were very successful and in my senior year we placed second at state for hockey. We always had great fans no matter what and I feel that speaks to the culture at East where everyone supports each other. It was a fun four years and I will always look back fondly on it.

Hermantown Senior High School
#4 Best Public High Schools in St. Louis County
- Hermantown Public School District, MN
- 83 reviews
Senior: As a current senior at Hermantown High School, I can safely say that thus far I have had a well-rounded, enjoyable experience. Not only have I been able to grow my education, but I have gained confidence, friendships, etc. Since my freshman year, my teachers have made it clear that they want me and my fellow classmates to succeed. The work can be challenging at times, but teachers are always open to questions or after class visits. In addition, there's ample opportunity for students to find a club, organization, or sport they are interested in. In regards to a change I'd like to see at Hermantown, I have witnessed the fight against trying to prevent and stop students from vaping. While these problems take time to solve, I would like to see them improve. Efforts to stop students from vaping have been made, but personally I haven't noticed a substantial difference. Overall the atmosphere at Hermantown Senior High School is positive and I feel that many students share that perspective.

Hibbing High School

- 80 reviews
Senior: The atmosphere at Hibbing High School is not one of high achievers unless you are part of the honors program. Because of this, it can be depressing to be here if you have high goals for your life. However, as an honors student, I can say that the math and science departments here are excellent. They will equip you for college extremely well, and the teachers are wonderful. They push you in a fun and helpful way. Honors classes can also be taken for college credit. Being in the honors curriculum has been a wonderful experience, and I feel more than ready for my college experience.

Virginia Secondary School

- 90 reviews
Senior: My experience was greatly enjoyable, the atmosphere was safe and friendly, the classes offered made sure there was something for everyone. You could go to school everyday and see happy students and teachers. There wasn’t a student parking lot so parking could sometimes be an issue, but that was small compared to the rest of the experience. When I graduate I can say that I enjoyed my years and will miss the place and all the teachers and friends I made. But there’s a new school being built so I’m interested to see how it will turn out for future students. It will be combining with a school we have a large athletic rivalry with.
