History of East Middle School
The new East Community Learning Center Middle School Campus was opened to students on September 1, 2011. The school was formerly known as Goodyear Middle School, in honor of Charles Goodyear (1800-60). It was originally housed in the original East High School building at North Martha Avenue, constructed in 1918, after East High School moved to the Brittain Road campus in 1955.
