Eastmont School District
The Eastmont School District encompasses approximately 150 square miles in Douglas County. The District currently enrolls over 6,000 students in grades P-12. Students are housed in nine buildings; five elementary schools, two intermediate schools, one junior high school, and one high school.
The community supported a facility improvement bond in 2010 which brought $74 million to our district, significantly remodeling Grant Elementary School, Sterling Intermediate School, and Eastmont High School. In 2016, the District was successful in obtaining a $10,000,000 grant that combined with a community supported capital levy will reduce K-3 classrooms with the addition of 20 classrooms, construct a new transportation center, and do other Districtwide improvements.
The District employs over 400 certificated and 350 classified personnel and has minimal employee turnover. A wide variety of programs are offered for all students including CTE/Vocational, extracurricular, music, fine art, STEM, second language, alternative learning, remedial, on-line, AP, college in the classroom, gifted and talented, and other student specific alternative and advanced programs.
The Mission of the Eastmont School District is to maximize the potential of all students by providing:
- Relationships that support a safe and secure learning environment for students and staff.
- Relevance in education experiences that meet the needs of students, parents, and community.
- Rigor by having expectations that require students to develop and demonstrate academic excellence,
