East High School is one of the most historic schools in Memphis. Now, leaders of SCS and partners from prominent businesses and higher learning institutions are working together to transform East High into a new Optional high school unlike any other in our city.

Opening in August 2017, the new Transportation-STEM (T-STEM) program will be a pipeline to high-demand degrees and career fields in Memphis’ globally renowned transportation, distribution and logistics sectors. With rigorous requirements for incoming ninth graders—including grades, attendance, conduct and an entrance interview—success at East High will be driven by high expectations and academic excellence.
