    East’s mission is to enable scholars to take charge of their future by being tenacious, thinking purposefully, and advocating for self and others. East is committed to offering a rigorous learning environment by providing a longer school day and advanced courses. East is committed to providing a culture that is warm, welcoming, and peaceful. Restorative pratices are
    used daily to build, maintain, and repair relationships. Each day a 30 minute “family group” takes place that fosers relationships between a small group of scholars and two adults to promote unity and a natural support system.
