    "My daughter is finishing up her freshman year at East. This is not our neighborhood high school but she was lucky to get accepted during the choice process. East has been fantastic. Great honors courses, fabulous drama and choir program, amazing school spirit and diversity (both racial and socioeconomic). She has thrived here and I couldn't be happier."

    "My son is a junior at Denver East High, and it has been a wonderful school for him. The Honors and AP classes are very challenging, and he has learned to think, debate, analyze and reason. I've been impressed with nearly every teacher he's had over the past 3 years. They are engaged and clearly love what they do. The school spirit is amazing, and it has richly rounded out my son's high school experience. He's has the opportunity to participate in the school debate program, the Spotlight newspaper, the cycling club and the rugby team. His friends play tennis, soccer, ultimate frisbee, participate on the Constitutional Scholars and NHS. East is truly a gift to Denver, and the students who have the opportunity to attend there."

    "I have an average student and find that as an average student my son needs additional tutoring to succeed in school,especially in math. I think East, like most public schools struggles with overcrowding. Teachers have so many students that they do not have time to devote to students on a "one on one" basis. That said, students have to reach out to teachers. If they do, the teachers do respond positively most of the time.."

    "As an East High graduate, I can tell you that the special thing about East has little to do with test scores. As a school it certainly has always produced fine academicians. The intangible something that is East comes from the people and the spirit from all that have gone before. It is not just some old building. It is a thriving and living entity that bridges yesterday and tomorrow. The call to greatness that East instills in its students will affect you for the rest of your life. It is one of the few life changing experiences that you can knowingly participate in. Embrace it. Become an Angel. Change your life"

    "East HS Constitutional Scholars just 3peated, 3 years in a row as N-A-T-I-O-N-A-L Champs. They competed against 49 other teams representing all the other states in the country. Our son competed last year and we took our daughter to DC for the competition. They won because of their hard work [students and teachers,] and extraordinary support of volunteers in the community that formed their training and support network. This is East at its best. THere are opportunities for your student to take advantage of and apply themselves. The principal is closing out on his 2nd year and is great, weekly meals with students, always extending himself with them and staff. It is a very very solid life / educational learning environment for the student and family that fits it."
