East High School is a public high school in the city of Youngstown, Ohio, United States. It had its first school year in fall 2007 since 1998, when a previous incarnation of the school closed. The original school was open from 1925 to 1998 when it was converted to a middle school and closed following the 2006 winter quarter. It is a part of the Youngstown City School District system. It was rebuilt and reopened as a high school in 2007, following the closing of Rayen High School and Wilson High School.
In its first incarnation, East's athletic teams were known as the Golden Bears. When the school was preparing to re-open, students voted on what to name their athletic teams, and they decided on the Panthers, to the dismay of some alumni who wanted to see the Golden Bears resurrected.
