Eastlake High School is a four-year public high school in Sammamish, Washington, a suburb east of Seattle. Opened in 1993, it is one of four traditional high schools in the Lake Washington School District, serving its eastern portion. The district converted its four senior high schools (grades 10–12) to four-year schools in the fall of 2012, adding the freshman class.

Eastlake shares its campus with the Renaissance School of Art and Reasoning.

Eastlake is one of three high schools on the Sammamish Plateau, all close in proximity along 228th Avenue. Skyline High School, in the Issaquah School District, opened in 1997 and is about a mile (1.6 km) south of Eastlake. Between the two public high schools is Eastside Catholic, a private secondary school which relocated to Sammamish in 2008.


Eastlake offers academic programs to prepare students for upper division and college level courses.

63% of 2005 graduates attended 4-year colleges and 23% attended 2-year colleges.



EHS is well known for its dominant football program. They share great tradition in sports with Skyline High School and play for one of the biggest rivalry games in the state "The Battle on the Plateau." They also pride themselves for having a devoted and large fanbase that is considered one of the best in the state. Eastlake High School competes in athletics in WIAA Class 4A in the KingCo 4A conference, and has won many regional and state championships.[citation needed]

Completed in January 2006, the school has a multi-purpose sports facility, featuring two lighted synthetic surface fields, operated by the city of Sammamish in cooperation with the school district. The 400 feet by 350 feet field accommodates baseball, softball, frisbee, lacrosse and soccer activities for adults and students all year round.[2]


Students at Eastlake have earned a number of awards for activities not related to athletics: for example, Eastlake students received Presidential Scholar awards in 2003, 2008, and 2010.[3][4]
