About Our School
In April of 2006, voters approved a no-tax increase bond issue to fund, among other projects, the construction of the district’s fourth comprehensive high school to be located on the corner of First Executive Avenue and Boone Hills Drive in St. Peters. The 43-acre property was formerly Koenig’s Farm. Construction on the school began immediately following the successful bond issue and followed an aggressive 18-month completion time table. East High School opened its doors to over 600 freshmen and sophomores on August 20, 2007. Those same students were involved in selecting the school’s black and old gold colors and the mascot, the Lions. Highlights of the facility include a state of the art distance learning laboratory, an artificial turf on the soccer/football field, all-weather track, two gymnasiums, and over 200,000 square feet of floor space. The auditorium, band, choir, and drama rooms will be complete and ready for use by the end of 2007. East High School offers many of the same benefits as are afforded other district students in the areas of curriculum offerings, extra-curricular activities, and A+ designation. The faculty and staff at East High School is committed to providing students with a positive learning environment to allow students to reach their fullest potential.
