Good Evening Eagle Families,
Next week we begin our Algebra EOC and FSA ELA retake testing.
If your student has already taken, but not yet passed, the algebra EOC test, and is still needing to meet the algebra graduation requirement, they are scheduled to take the algebra retake test on 2/26 and 2/27. Students must attend both days. The test begins 1st period and ends after 3rdperiod.
If your student is in 11th or 12th grade and has not passed their FSA ELA graduation requirement, they are scheduled to take this important test. The test is given over three days and students must attend all three days. The FSA ELA test will be given on 2/28, 3/4 and 3/5. The test begins 1stperiod and ends after 3rd period.
Passing both of these tests are graduation requirements so please make sure your student is well rested and prepared to test. Remember, we offer free breakfast for all students!
We are currently registering students for next year’s classes. Students are working with their teachers and counselors to ensure they are requesting the best academic options. If you have not done so already, please review and sign the course request sheet.
We are only two weeks away from spring break and the end of the third nine week grading period. It is never too early to begin preparing for annual assessments and final exams.
Thank you and have a great evening,
Carmela Haley, Principal

It is situated in a suburban-type community of north Pinellas County. East Lake High School currently serves more than 2,100 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.
