Welcome to East End Community School!


RISE AND SHINE at EECS 


RISE AND SHINE at EECS 

Choice  + Relationships + Engagement  = Success! 

East End Community School's Rise & Shine program began as a before school model of engagement that helps students kick start their day.  Our belief in engagement and relationship building help students to foster a mindset of success. Students engage with a caring and charismatic adult to get their minds working and bodies moving at the start of the day.  There are over 75 weekly activities offered (from six learning strands: STEM, Literacy, Health & Wellness, Languages, Citizenship and the Visual and Performing Arts). 
  
R & S is an opportunity to building lasting relationships and engage students, staff and community in promising practices so students can access their learning.  Volunteers, parents and community partners, and EECS staff are the people who create the relationships within our school community that make Rise and Shine successful.  If you would like to become a volunteer please contact Dan Nogar (nogard@portlandschools.org) for more information.

East End Community School always encourages students, staff and families to grow, learn & create every day!  

Portland Public Schools named by Niche.com as one of the top 10 school districts in Maine.
  

As Superintendent Botana notes, "Our schools offer an educational experience that stands out in Maine for a variety of reasons – our rich programming, our dedicated and caring staff, our extensive community partnerships, and our diversity... The Portland Public Schools believes that diversity is one of our greatest assets, and we strive to celebrate, respect, honor and learn from our differences. As part of the Equity goal in our Portland Promise, our updated Comprehensive Plan, we promote practices that advance inclusion, and affirm our commitment to equity and social justice."
