Welcome to Eastern High School!
As we embark on our ninth year, we begin another year with our new principal Steve Harvey. We look forward to growing as a staff and achieving new goals together. Working together with our community members and parents, we anticipate another year of excellence and achievement from our students.
We value the communication we have with our school parents and community. This Web site contains a variety of information about our school of interest to you and your student/s attending Eastern High School. Please contact us if you have specific questions or comments and we will be be happy to help you.
The Eastern Community and football program would also like to honor a very special individual who was part of our FHE family, a friend to many, and a hero to all who crossed his path. Nate Hurwitz, 16, was a very passionate young man who did everything with his signature smile. Whether it be in the classroom, our athletic fields, or the many activities Nate was involved in, Nate always gave of himself. Sadly Nate passed away on September 16, 2012.
