East embraces its responsibility to challenge students to become critical thinkers who will not only inherit our democratic heritage but who will also lead the world to peace and prosperity. The East faculty, cognizant of its mission, leads and inspires students to develop their potential by modeling the value and significance of learning.
Eastside was named the Most Outstanding High School Newspaper in America by the American Scholastic Press Association for the second year in a row. We were one of 17 schools this year to earn that distinction. We scored a 970 out of 1,000 on the ASPA rubric, so we won First Place with Special Merit as well. Our "50 Years" pages throughout the year earned Eastside the distinction of "Best Special Content."
Also, the following 20 students were named to the National Scholastic Press Association Journalism Honor Roll: Ilana Arougheti, Kaitlyn Boyle, Kevin Chen, Sari Cohen, Elissa Cohen, Ashley Cooper, Jennifer Dong, Eric First, Jared Fisch, Gabriella Friedman, Brooke Greenberg, Drew Hoffman, Nafessa Jaigirdar, Joe Levin, Asher Maitin, Sara Messinger, Jenna Myers, Ezra Nugiel, Hope Rosenblatt and Louis Zimmermann.

The International Competition of High School Acappella (ICHSA) started this year's season in January with 160 competitive high school a cappella groups from across the nation. After 29 quarterfinal and semi-final competitions, the #1 champions from each region of the country went on to compete in Finals held at Town Hall Theater in Times Square, NY. Of the final 9 competing groups, Stay Tuned took 4th place in their first ever finals competition. Being ranked as #4 in the nation while competing against private performing arts schools is a thrill and an honor. We are so thankful for the support so many have shown throughout our competition season. If you'd like to see Stay Tuned in an upcoming competition, they will be competing in Acappella for Autism at Moorestown High School, this Saturday, April 29th, at 7:00pm. Tickets are $10, and all proceeds will be donated to Autism New Jersey.
