East Tech is focused on student growth, demonstrated by our sharply rising test scores (up 10 percent on the OGT, the largest gain in the city of Cleveland), but also on the whole student. We provide a full range of wraparound services as one of 17 schools in a program overseen by the United Way and have a range of services, including on-site counseling, dental clinics and staff advisors for every student. Additional support comes from City Year staff members in every 9th-and 10th-grade classroom.
