East High School Greenhouse In The News
East High School's greenhouse was recently featured in the REAP Farm to School & Community Spotlight.

In 2018, REAP partnered with East High students and staff to ignite a unique Farm to School learning opportunity at Madison East High School. Led by students and by staff in the occupational and physical therapy and special education departments, this initiative converted an underused greenhouse into a living classroom so students could grow, taste, share, and sell vegetable, herb, and ornamental plants. Grants from North Central Region Sustainable Agriculture Research and Education (NCR-SARE) Youth Educator and Rotary Foundation of Madison provided financial support for the initiative.

Community Partners Provide Academic Support & Enrichment Opportunities
Organizations in our community are committed to offering academic support and enrichment opportunities to East High School students. Check out these opportunities from Girls Inc. and The Lussier LOFT at the Goodman Community Center, Madison Schools & Community Recreation, the Upward Bound program from Forward Service Corporation, and the Escalera program from Centro Hispano.
