Open Quote I went there and I was accepted to University of Wisconsin-Madison, which is one of the top public colleges in the country! It's a very good school with passionate, fantastic teachers and great classes. If it's any testament to the foreign language department, I placed into 5th semester French my freshman year. This school is great and a perfectly fine place to send your children.

Open Quote My kids have gotten a great education at East. Great community school with diverse student body, strong programming, lots of opportunity. Incredible math department.
Very accepting and inclusive environment - not "cliquey". Lots of friendships. Very good prep for college and beyond. Close Quote

About Student-Teacher Ratio
Student/teacher ratio is calculated by dividing the total number of students by the total number of full-time equivalent teachers. Please note that a smaller student/teacher ratio does not necessarily translate to smaller class size. In some instances, schools hire teachers part time, and some teachers are hired for specialized instruction with very small class sizes. These and other factors contribute to the student/teacher ratio. Note: For private schools, Student/teacher ratio may not include Pre-Kindergarten.
