from the principal
Campus is once again full and buzzing with excitement as students reunite after a busy summer. Over the last couple of months, they have been engaged in Eastside’s Summer Session, taking high school or college-level classes on campus or participating in off-campus activities like STEM programs, research internships, and leadership adventures. They deepened their knowledge in their favorite subjects, discovered new academic interests, and met peers and professionals who challenged them. No matter their summer activity, each student returns to campus with a new perspective, ready to learn.
For some students, their journey through high school and into four-year colleges is just beginning, while others are entering their last year at Eastside. Some are living in the dorms, learning a new language, or trying a new activity, but they all have one thing in common: every student has committed to our college preparatory curriculum and is prepared to take advantage of our support programs that have helped guide 19 classes of first-generation students to college.
It is with this renewed spirit and commitment that we welcome our students back into the classroom, knowing that we have many good friends to thank for the endless possibilities that lie ahead. Together, we look forward to another great year.
