WATCH: Inside Year Two At Rochester's East High School

East High School | University of Rochester" target="_blank">

It’s undoubtedly the Rochester school under a microscope right now. East High School has been around for more than a hundred years in our city. The school has graduated everyone from musicians and respected academics to major league sports stars. But in recent years it’s been getting more attention for poor student performance than for the strength of its graduating class. That’s why in 2014 the University of Rochester stepped in and agreed to partner with East at a time when it was on the state’s list of priority schools in need of an immediate turn-around. It’s now the second year of this collaboration under the management of the University of Rochester. Joining this segment of Need to Know to discuss what’s on tap for this new school year is Shaun Nelms, Superintendent of East High.
