High School Doesn't Have to Be a Struggle

If you are feeling like high school is a struggle, we’re here to tell you there is a better way. At Eastlake High School(EHS) we believe high school can be an incredible experience. That means instead of obstacles, you’ll find hope, options, community and people who genuinely care about you at our small, tuition free high school.  We’ve designed our high school to be different, on purpose.

If a demanding schedule is making attending school or finding the time to do homework feel impossible, you’ll love our flexible scheduling and no homework learning. 

As an Eastlake student, you can tackle classwork wherever you are, whenever you can. We offer in-person and hybrid options to meet your needs, as well as morning blocks of class that allow you to work in the afternoon or evenings. Access to our after-hours tutor, available 3x per week for 3 hours each night, means you won’t have to miss out on extra help if you can’t be on campus.

If you need more time to complete your coursework, or you are searching for credits, we can help you carve out a path that will still get you to graduation. We also offer self-paced learning for all students looking to fast track your graduation date. 

EHS is a risk-free educational journey. You are safe and supported to try new things here. If you try a schedule that doesn’t work, you can change at any time.

If you’ve found school challenging because the large school you are at is unable to meet your needs, we can make learning easier. 

Not all learners are created equal. Some do their best work in the morning while others need their beauty sleep. Some need complete silence to concentrate, others enjoy a favorite playlist to stay on task. Our skills and learning styles are all unique and all are celebrated at Eastlake.

The small size of our school means that we can attend to the individual learning styles of our students. We get to know you and your needs, goals and skills. Together, we’ll create a plan that gets you to graduation and success after high school while gently supporting both your strengths and areas of challenge. 

You may have an IEP or 504 and you need a school that knows how to teach in a way you can learn. Our teachers have seen it all and know how to help, with tailored learning and caring 1:1 support.

If you haven’t found a fit at your current school, you’ll love our caring, vibrant community. 

We are proud of our judgment-free, caring community. We lean on each other, cheer each other on, and have fun together. From after-school clubs to eSports, we offer a little of everything to help you get the most of your high school experience. 

Eastlake’s small class sizes, attentive staff, and focus on mental health mean that you will be supported every step of the way. We know our students have faced adversity; that’s why we have a system of safety nets to help catch you when you need a hand. Our community and Family Advocacy Program are here to guide you toward your bright future. Eastlake High School is much more than a school building–we consider ourselves a family.

Let us show you that high school doesn’t have to be a struggle. Enroll at Eastlake for community, personalized learning and unwavering support. We’re saving you a spot for Fall ’22 now.
