East Irondequoit Eastridge High School and Ninth Grade Academy



Welcome to Eastridge High School. 

EHS is a community that fosters a sense of belonging through positive relationships, school involvement, and high academic expectations.  Our students accept ownership of their academic achievement and utilize their strengths for college and career preparation.

Our very caring staff energetically works with families and students.  We offer an array of excellent academic offerings that challenge and stretch our students – International Baccalaureate Programme, AVID, Advance Placement, Dual Credit with MCC, and Project Lead the Way.  We also have a variety of electives in visual arts, sciences, humanities, business, and performing arts.  Academic support is constantly available, and there is even after-school tutoring two days each week.  The athletic program is top notch and extracurricular clubs are vast.  Success multiplies when students are engaged in their learning, which is what we want for every EHS student.

I encourage you to sign up for the Eastridge electronic newsletter, as it is the main source of constant communication with the school.  Please follow the link on this page, and you will be added to the mailing list.

Thank you for visiting our homepage, and please don't hesitate to contact us if any assistance is needed.
