East Aurora High School (EAHS) cherishes relationships and connectivity. We have passionate professional educators, gifted coaches and leaders, loving parents, a supportive community, determined young learners and dedicated teams designed to support the dreams of individual students. The guiding principles of the high school are the daily promotion of exploration, innovation, growth and opportunity. The school offers a variety of experiences, in and out of the classroom, which foster emotional and intellectual growth. We encourage varied teaching approaches appropriate to students' needs and teachers' strengths.

EAHS is proud to offer one of the most well-rounded and comprehensive course selections in a Western New York (WNY) high school. A critical component of the success of EAHS graduates is their participation in our specialty programs. We support and offer 2-year off-site training programs focusing on one of 14 vocational trades, 17 AP courses including a 2-year college-level AP Capstone curriculum, a NYS Career Technical Education (CTE) endorsed business sequence, a 2-year International Studies multi-disciplinary program, a 4-year multi-disciplinary STEM initiative and a Film Academy.

We believe that extra-curricular activities are an integral part of the total educational experience. The interscholastic athletic program at EAHS is unmatched for a school with our enrollment. Approximately 67 percent of the student body participates in at least one of our athletic programs and one third participates in at least two sports. The EAHS extracurricular club offerings include over 20 options for high school students. They develop leadership skills, a sense of belonging and establish long lasting student activity traditions.
