Principal’s Message

Dear East High School Students and Parents,

It is an honor to have the opportunity to serve the East High School community in my role as principal.  East High School is an International Baccalaureate School with high standards for all students.  Our goal is to increase to rigor and prepare all students for college and or career. 

At East, all students are IB students.  Every 9th and 10th grade student is part of the Middle Years Program (MYP) and our 11th and 12th grade students have the opportunity to enroll in the Diploma Program.  "The International Baccalaureate aims to develop inquiring, knowledgeable and caring young people who help to create a better and more peaceful world through intercultural understanding and respect" (International Baccalaureate Mission Statement). 

We also have other opportunities at East such as concurrent enrollment, Senior to Sophomore, and Early College.  We will work hard to ensure that every student has their individual needs met and that we prepare students to be successful after they graduate from East High School.  The staff will foster positive relationships with the community in order to provide a positive experience for our students.

Please contact me if you have questions about East High School.  Again, it is a great privilege to serve as the Principal of East High School.


Pete Vargas
