Curriculum Night March 5, 2015
Eastside High School will host our annual Curriculum Night Thursday, March 5, 2015 at 6:30PM. This is a new date due to schools and offices being closed on February 26th.  This is an important evening for rising 9th grade students and families, current students and families as well as students who have applied for special permission!  Please plan to join us for informational sessions (Advanced Placement Courses, Registration Process for Next Year, Making a Successful Transition to High School), meeting the teachers, and touring the school.

New State Testing for all 11th Graders
Beginning this spring, all 11th graders in South Carolina will be required to take two assessments. One assessment will be the ACT WorkKeys which measures career readiness and is used nationally as a part of job placement.  The other assessment will be The ACT which measures college readiness (English, Math, Reading, Science, and Wriiting portions).  The ACT will be administered on April 28, 2015 and the ACT WorkKeys will be administered on April 29, 2015.  More information about both tests can be found on the ACT website: http://www.act.org/.

High School Exit Exam No Longer Required
Beginning with the Class of 2015, students will no longer be required to pass the state’s high school exit exam to earn a South Carolina diploma. Also, students who did not receive a diploma due to not passing the exit exam may file a petition. More information can be found here.

Student Parking Lot Sold Out
Unfortunately, the student parking lot at Eastside High school is currently sold out.   If a student would like to be placed on a waiting list for a space, he/she may do so if meeting all the criteria to purchase a parking pass (regular or restricted license, Alive at 25, vehicle registration and insurance).  To be placed on the waiting list, the student should see Mrs. Morgan in the front office.
