The mission of East High School is to become a community; enhancing students to become higher order thinkers, strengthen leadership skills, while enriching peacemaking and social skills in an environment of shared values of nonviolence, equality and unity.
Furthermore, it is a place where the staff is dedicated to creating and teaching in a learning environment where everyone is treated with unconditional respect.
Every student will be empowered and inspired to reach his or her full academic, emotional, physical and spiritual potential.
This building wide behavioral health support is based on Nicholas Hobbs’ Re-Education philosophy and the 12 Principle of Re-Education.
This is a unique opportunity for children to participate in a positive behavior support model.
The use of these principles has been proven to encourage positive change.
Youth Intensive Services (YIS) has been providing quality behavioral health services since 2009 in Trumbull and Mahoning Counties. The practice consists of Licensed Clinical Master’s level therapists and mental health workers.

YIS has multiple contracts and grants with educational institutions, industry, social service agencies, Medicaid, rehabilitation bureaus, youth detention centers, and state agencies.
The YAA is supported through a 21st Century Community Learning Center grant from the U.S. Department of Education.

After school programming is supported by community funders and partners who help provide our students with targeted reading and math intervention, homework assistance, and healthy snacks.
Students also receive mentoring, college and career awareness, service learning, and youth development activities (team-building, science, technology, music, engineering, photography, and dance).
