Welcome to the Half Hollow Hills High School East homepage, a site to highlight, inform and celebrate everything that is High School East. As one of the finest educational settings in the country, High School East annually receives recognition at the local, state and national level for both individual and collective achievements. James Baldwin said, “Know from whence you came. If you know whence you came, there are absolutely no limitations to where you can go.” We are the Thunderbirds! According to folklore, the Thunderbird, is a mythical creature which was considered to be supernatural; holding great power and strength. Perhaps most notably, the Thunderbird is known to embody a variety of facets and features. Similar to that spirit, High School East enjoys a diverse school community that we continually look to honor and embrace. Everyone brings value and importance to our school community, for it is the collective passions, thoughts and spirit that make High School East truly come to life.
