I cannot say enough about East-West. I highly recommend it for so many reasons, and quite frankly I feel that this is the absolute best place for my child to receive her high school education, ensuring that her college preparatory needs are being met. My lovely 15-year-old daughter is quiet and reserved, although brilliant in her own way and witty as can be. At home she shines as our star. Her school experience had not been anything like this until she arrived at your school. My beautiful daughter has made the Honor Roll three marking periods. She strives to do better and enjoys it. She has made the nicest bunch of friends from so many different cultures where no one shuts her out because we are not the same!! Friendships were made quickly here and school makes her happy! She never says, "I don't want to go to school today" anymore. This school has the most caring staff I have ever met, a principal who loves what he does, and students that are just as kind as my on child. I thank all of the staff, from the bottom of my heart, for helping my daughter shine. You are all wonderful at the many jobs that you do, and we are so much more fortunate to have you guiding our children!
