St. Charles East High School is a school that provides academic and activity opportunity for all levels. Something I enjoy about East is the program 'Saints Supporting Saints'. This program requires all sports team to attend and support two other teams in our school. This program allows for the more "unpopular" sports to be recognized an given a chance to show that they are just as important as the more well-known sports. This also shows the sportsmanship and pride our school has for each other. St. Charles East is a great school for sports and academic opportunity, however, there is one thing I would change about it. Having teachers that are passionate and helpful in the subject that they teach is very important. In the past I have experienced teachers who do not demonstrate either qualities. I would like for the hiring staff of St. Charles East to do follow up reports on the teachers frequently and listen to what the students are saying about the teachers.

I love going to East, It's one of the top rated school in the country, It has good security, good rules, the teachers are so nice and really help you. I am a freshman this year and I can say that the upperclassmen are actually pretty nice and didn't throw pennies at me. Another good thing about STCE is that it is everything you expect when you come plus more, like in middle school I was always told about all the clubs and opportunities that were available but I didn't really experience until I got there. It's just a great school overall.
