About our school

East Anchorage High School is culturally diverse and the students and staff demonstrate a welcome and safe environment for all. We are educationally sound, offering an array of academic options that range from remedial courses to Advanced Placement courses in all subject areas. East further promotes excellence through a variety of fine arts offerings, world languages, career technology and JROTC.  Alternative programs include bilingual education, special education, School-within-a-School, Alaska State School for the Deaf and Hard-of-Hearing, and Elitnaurvik within East. To personalize learning and help ensure academic success, students and faculty are aligned into five small learning communities identified as “houses.”  This arrangement provides an opportunity to promote positive communication, relationships and academic achievement.
