School Notes

  • All students sign a contract pledging their dedication to succeed by attending school each day, completing their homework to the best of their abilities, and seeking help as needed. In return, our faculty is committed to teach, encourage, and inspire our students. The school day begins at 8:00 am and ends at 5:00 pm, and includes tutorial periods during which students can receive one-on-one help from their teachers and tutors. Our three-year college readiness program, summer session, residential program, and alumni and career pathways program all provide critical layers of support that enable our students to meet the expectations of our challenging college preparatory curriculum and succeed in college and beyond. A culture of mutual respect and admiration has grown up between students and faculty, creating a positive environment in which students become active participants in their own educational and personal growth.

School Reviews

This school is racist toward black students often expelling them in 11th grade. They use black students for their athleticism and then kick them out. I think it`s disgusting. It's supposed to serve people of color and yet black students are bullied, treated with indifference, and forced out. If you want your black child to be successful put them in a private school that will help them succeed. I am African American and my brother and I both received full scholarships to Bellarmine and Castilleja. Eastside is not a school for black children.
