Students interested in joining an East athletics team should complete the online forms so coaches know how to contact them. They can also contact coaches using the coaches directory or Athletics Interest Form.

Winter Sports Eligibility
Week 9 Progress Grades will determine academic eligibility to play winter sports. Winter Student Athletes who are not passing all classes at the Week 9 Progress Grade report, will not be able to start competing when the winter sports season starts.

Per the Athletic Code, any non-passing grade(s) reported at the 9 Week (aka First Quarter) point of the semester will result in an Academic Suspension, as follows:
  • 1 non-passing grade = ineligible for the first 10 school days following teachers’ submissions of grades and must include at least one contest, but not more than 22% of scheduled contests.
  • 2+ non-passing grades = ineligible for the first 15 school days following teachers’ submissions of grades and must include at least two contests, but not more than 33% of scheduled contests.

Eligibility questions should be referred to Winter Sports Coaches or the Athletic Office.
Students Unlearning Racism
About the club: As students and allies we strive to unlearn systemic racism and educate ourselves and others while amplifying the voices of BIPOC. Every week the group chooses a topic to unlearn and relearn. Most recently they’ve been investigating and unlearning harmful stereotypes. To get involved with this club, contact AVID Teacher Ms. Naputi or TOPS Coordinator Ms. Yudawanti. Follow the club on Instagram (@studentsunlearningracism).
Upward Bound

Upward Bound serves 120 East High School students each year. The program provides tutoring, academic advising, homework help, and ACT Prep and helps students research colleges and career paths, take students on field trips to visit the schools of interest, and visit campuses and professional job sites. In addition, Upward Bound offers a free on-campus residential summer program each year, where students live on a college campus, take classes, do community service, and participate in cultural excursions. Students can also earn academic and summer stipends for their participation.

East High School is currently recruiting 9-12th grade students who want to go to college! With the help of UB, our 2020 grads earned nearly 2 million dollars in grants and scholarships to attend the colleges of their dreams! In order to be eligible for UB, you must qualify for free or reduced lunch and/or be the first in your family to earn a 4-year Bachelor’s Degree. We cannot accept current AVID participants, since those students are also receiving extensive college-prep support. Interested students should email or call/text 608-640-7078 for more information.
