About ELHS

East Lake High School, one of 17 high schools in the Pinellas County school sysytem, is on of the most recently constructed high schools in Pinellas County. It is situated in a suburban-type community of north Pinellas County. East Lake High School currently serves more than 2,000 students from the communities of Tarpon Springs, East Lake, Palm Harbor, and Oldsmar.

Built in 1986, the nine-building complex is located on the west side of East Lake Road, south of Keystone Road. Designed for flexibility, economy, and adaptability, the individual units, including the three two-story classroom buildings and an administrative building with the media center over it, are connected by covered walkways. The remaining five buildings are a 1,500-seat gymnasium, a theatre that accomodates 886 people, choral, band and keyboard rooms and support facility units including food services and mechanical backup. Seventy percent of all light comes from natural outside sources. East Lake is also unique in its building design to include a Child Care Center available to faculty and community.

The Curriculum is designed to be broad and deep enough in scope to provide for a wide range of student interests and abilities. Offerings for the college-bound students include honors and Advanced Placement courses, dual enrollment with St. Petersburg College and executive internship training. Vocational programs available include business, drafting, and family and consumer science. On-the-job training is available through the Diversified Cooperative Training Programs. Special needs students are met through the High School Education Alternatives Program of classes and exceptional education (ESE) programs. Expanded offerings in art, drama, and music serve to meet special interests of students. The ever-expanding world of technology is becoming a cital part of all curriculum areas.

Accepting Responsibility as future community leaders, many student groups continue their academic efforts by participationg in community service projects. Environmental and beautification projects have been a continual source of service to the campus and the community. Art students exhibited personal works at local community centers. The National Honor Society membership has grown to be the largest chapter in Pinellas County.

East Lake High School is also fortunate to have community and business participation om ots collaboration for excellence. Members, students, parents and business/community partners comprise the School Advisory Council. Staff members at East Lake High School continues to work under the philosophy developed when the school opened, recognizing their responsibility to the students and to the community. Their commitment to a student-centered learning environment is evident in the successful efforts of teachers and counselors to increase student performance and make learning relevant. From developing a vocational/ career guidance program to the teaching of technology, the staff works to help students help students reach maximum potential. East Lake High continue to believe that parents, educators, students and the community shall and will shrare the respinsibility for learning.
