Sorry, I never went to school in Denver and don’t have kids yet..so I haven’t dealt with checking out schools. But I know you can find sites online that rate and give statistics on schools around North America. Maybe you can find that specific school online and check them out that way. Someone else will have a better answer for you as well.
I don’t think East would be my first choice as a school. If you have the choice, I would look into other schools around Denver.
hmmm I would agree with the other 2 entries on this one. East would NOT be even in my top 100 schools to attend. Do some research on schools Jefferson county schools have a nice reputation for good schools. http://www.publicschoolreview.com/county_public_schools/stateid/CO/county/8059
Hope this helps.
If you have your choice of schools then I would suggest trying to pick another. The area around Denver East can be a little dangerous at times, and you might feel more comfortable at a school such as George Washington or Cherry Creek. If you do not have a choice, then I would say just do it! Colorado is BEAUTIFUL! Good luck!
here is a list of all the schools and how they do.
I think Cherry Creek and Douglas County are 2 of the better school districts around town.
I’m sorry, I don’t know much about the highschools in Colorado. Good Luck!
I am responding to your question about East High School. I am sorry
to have to tell you but East is a very Rough Gang riddled school. If you
want to go to a good HS try either West or South High
Other good school choices in and around Denver would be the Jefferson school district. There are also good schools in Lakewood, and Golden as well all within 5-20 miles of Denver City limits
I hate to be the one to tell you this but you are extremely ignorant in the subject of race relations. East High is the school i attend and can say that it is one of the places i feel the safest at in the whole world, next to my house. West and South both have reputations worse than that of East so i am even more clueless as to why someone from toledo suggests things to exchange students that are completely unfounded. May God have mercy on your soul.
Thanks for all of you!!
Well,I don’t have the choice to choose a school but to go there…
No matter how hard it would be,
I’ll face it with all my courage..
The reason why I choose to join the exchange student programme is to see more things and to seek more dreams.
I believe that it’s a power to which I have to show respect that arranged me to go there..
Sorry for saying so much,anyway,thanks a million for helping me!You do make me feel hopeful to receive this challenge.
My mother and my 3rd cousin both went there and had a positive experience. East high is a beautiful historic school. It is a dangerous school. The school itself has people who look like they could be gang members attending it. East high is off of east Colfax Ave; the street of drug deals and prostitution. Be careful and you should have a wondeful time.
Hi Guys-well I graduated from East High school and I found it to be a great experience-and I take offense to the comments about students “looking like gang members” So, what does a gang member look like? Do you mean Latino and Black students? I am glad I did not go to high school with you!
East High School is like any High school-there are good and bad people, nerds, jocks etc. the point is-you can make friends and have a great time no matter where you are-just don’t go in with the idea that everyone is a gang member and you will do fine. By the way Don Cheadle the famous actor (Crash, Hotel Rwanda, Ocean’s 11 and 12)-graduated from East High and he seems to be doing just fine!!
Ya,i think people are being a little steriotypical here. I’m going there myself. It’s not that bad of a place. The campus is very nice and if you just stick with the right crowd, you should fit in just fine.
I think I’m going to follow the trend of the past two entries…I’m an Alumni of East High (02) and I was really mad when I read some of the entries on here! Colfax, like any busy metropolitan street, can be dangerous if you’re doing the wrong thing. But honestly, walking to lunch isn’t one of them. As far as “gangs” are concerned, I think those comments were moreso centered around the minorities of the school. The way people dress and the culture that they follow is what makes East High School. It’s such a diverse place, you have to respect it. I know for a FACT that the caucasian students can be just as raunchy, if not moreso, than minorities a LOT of the time. The urban inner city has such a bad rap just because of where its at…it’s 2006. Enough said.
I’m an alumni of East High and good is a relative term. It depends on what you define as “good.” Good is what you make it, as no school is inherently good or bad. Crime is in every city in America, so don’t base your decision on any of the comments to you about Colfax or the potential of connecting with a criminal element. The US is filled with people whose hearts are filled with fear and misplaced judgements and perceptions. Whatever you fear will come into your life.
You should already know to be cognizant of your surroundings any and everywhere you go, as crime is not limited to the area around East High, nor the suburbs of beverly hills. If you expect to be a victim of crime, you will end up becoming a victim of crime. Its not the school or the area you should focus on, but what your goals and hearts desire consist of. If you feel that attending East will move you a step closer to your goals and you attend with an open mind and heart, then it is the best school you could ever attend.
It’s not the school you attend, but where your head and focus is mentally. Do your research, pray on it, discuss it with your parents and mentors, then step out on faith and go for it. trust in God with all your heart and lean not unto your own understanding of matters. Don’t spend too much time pondering to the extent that you allow all this negativity to get you so distracted and fearful that you don’t reach for the stars at East.
Listen to your instinct which is the spirit of man/woman there to guide us; whatever it leans toward; whatever it tells you to do, and whatever just feels right – do it. Stay positive, focused, hopeful and excited about what the future holds for you where ever you decide.
I survived the 3 years there just fine with no incidents of harm to me or my spirit, and I’m presently on the deans list and international honor roll in college. It’s not where you’re at (where you attend), it’s where you’re going.

I am currently a student and I must say that I love East!!! Yes I said LOVE! I have had such a wonderful experience throughout the past couple of years! I especially enjoyed the diversity! I must disagree about Cherry Creek and George being better! Not only are they my schools rivals but I have heard multiple stories of school violence at George from a current IB student! And all I have to say about Cherry Creek is… Who wants to visit a school with no diversity or personality? I must say that they are not the nicest people either… One of Cherry Creeks Teams had a cheer that went like this.. “Your Dad works for my Dad!” I’m sorry but that is not the place I would want to send my children! Especially if everyone looks the same!
All I know is if you come to Colorado you should definitely come to East! Good Luck!!!
