History of East CLC 7-8 Campus

The new East Community Learning Center 7-8 Campus was opened to students on September 1, 2011. The school was formerly known as Goodyear Middle School, in honor of Charles Goodyear (1800-1860). It was originally housed in the original, N. Martha Ave. East High School building, constructed in 1918, after East High School moved to the Brittain Road campus in 1955.
