Everyone is so welcoming at Williamsville East! There’s so much diversity and everyone gets along with the teachers and other students. Teachers are also very welcoming and will help you with any problems you may have. There’s so many clubs and sports to choose from! You could even create a club if you don’t have one you like. A teacher would be willing to help you out with getting it started. All the administrators are very nice and helpful. I would like to see a dance team in the future since not many dancers have options to get involved with sports. The arts are very good and entertaining! There are many singing opportunities at East such as Winterfest, the musical and coffee house. The academics are very good and a lot of people are so motivated to work together and achieve! East is a splendid school.

East is great! Sometimes the organization of school events could be better improved, but it's nothing that's worth not attending. I've always had positive experiences with my teachers, and the work load is manageable. My only problem is with the guidance department. The counselors aren't very engaging with their students, and gave me an unprofessional feeling. Overall, 4/5.
Williamsville East excels in terms of academics. The academic classes are taught by wonderful, caring teachers. The course selection is very broad, giving students a chance to choose fun electives and challenging APs. The school has a great amount of clubs and extracurriculars, that give people a chance to meet new friends and hang out after school. The music department has been giving more than adequate resources to excel, but that is the one place where the teachers are less than satisfactory. Aside from that one department, the entire school itself is great.
