The mission of Park East is to educate all students to be critical thinkers by conducting research, solving complex problems, clearly expressing ideas through writing, providing evidence to support arguments and reading challenging texts.

In our classes and through a highly structured advisory system, we help students develop individual and social responsibility by expecting the highest personal and academic standards. Athletics, school-wide activities and traditions at Park East reflect our commitment to being an inclusive, fun-loving and respectful community. Through their educational experiences, Park East students acquire a set of values and a sense of kinship that allows them to realize and reach ambitious goals.
Dear Students and Families,
Welcome to the 2019 - 2020 School Year!
On behalf of the faculty and staff of Park East HS, I'd like to say that we are very excited to build on our successes from last year and accomplish even more in the 2019-2020 school year. We have great partnerships and programs (including the College Bound Initiative, College Access for All, Computer Science for All just to name a few). We also have new staff joining the Park East family and we are really looking forward to meeting the incoming class of freshmen. There are so many opportunities here at Park East High School and we are eager for our new students to join us and help us make it even better. We are committed to working harder than ever to fulfill the mission of Park East High School and prepare our students for college and careers. We look forward to partnering with you as we engage and support our students in the challenging academic work ahead. We are also eager for everyone to participate in the many after-school activities, sports teams, academic clubs, and recreation opportunities that we offer--involvement by new students and their families in these endeavors is always encouraged and appreciated at Park East.
As we move into the school year, please feel free to contact me any time with any concerns you have, or ideas that you would like to share about how we can better work together in our quest to make Park East an even better place to live and grow. Go Pride! Go Park East!
