  • How can one not like East High? Granted, it's been many years but teachers taught us well even if there was no open campus but we had fun. It was truly the best years of my life.

  • Class of 67 here. Nice site, but I hope someone can help me find a yearbook for 1967. I want to buy one. I loved this school back then but can't say much now because I left about 7 years ago. I was a Callsvik back then.
