Despite recent problems with the cheerleading team, East High School consistently supports its student body with a very strong faculty. The classes here are numerous and all taught very well, the extracurricular activities are plentiful, the sports programs are generally strong, and there are lots of opportunities for student. In my time at east, I have met amazing friends, participated in many musicals (all of which were awesome, thanks to strong theater, music, choir, and dance departments), seen a few fall plays, been to lots of sports events (the boys soccer team is especially good and fun to watch!), and met many, many, kind and thoughtful staff members. This is the kind of special place where pretty much anybody, down to the security guards and janitorial crew, cares about you. Yes, East is still high school, and any public inner-city high school has its problems... but don’t discount East simply because you’ve heard bad things about the teachers, the sports coaches, the students. It is truly a Denver gem.
