Cherry Hill High School East (also known as Cherry Hill East or CHE) is a four-year comprehensive public high school serving students in ninth through twelfth grades in Cherry Hill, in Camden County, in the U.S. state of New Jersey, operating as part of the Cherry Hill Public Schools. Cherry Hill East is one of three high schools in the district; the others are Cherry Hill High School West and Cherry Hill Alternative High School.
As of the 2021–22 school year, the school had an enrollment of 2,076 students and 144.0 classroom teachers (on an FTE basis), for a student–teacher ratio of 14.4:1. There were 166 students (8.0% of enrollment) eligible for free lunch and 39 (1.9% of students) eligible for reduced-cost lunch.
Due to delays in the construction of the new school building, the entering class of 450 students at Cherry Hill East began the 1966–67 school year attending split sessions at the original Cherry Hill High School building.
Constructed at a cost of $4 million (equivalent to $36.1 million in 2022), the school building opened in January 1967 as the township's second high school facility. What then became known as Cherry Hill High School West was the first public high school in Cherry Hill. The first class graduated in June 1970, having started their freshman year in the Fall of 1966 in the West building doing split sessions until the East building was ready for occupancy in January 1967. The class of 1970 was the only class in the new building until the class of 1971 arrived in Fall 1967. By Fall 1969, the building housed all four grades.
Student demonstrations for school security
On February 26, 2018, in the wake of the Stoneman Douglas high school shooting and the March for Our Lives Movement, student leaders staged an auditorium protest against the suspension of a popular history teacher after the teacher claimed that a school shooting was imminent at Cherry Hill East, stating "I have the gun". The following day, hundreds of students staged a school walkout. They walked through the school's sidewalks and 17 laps around the track field in honor of the 17 victims of the Stoneman Douglas shooting. The walkout lasted around an hour before students returned to class. A petition urging the teacher's reinstatement was signed by 500 students. During a school board meeting with Cherry Hill Public Schools Superintendent Joseph Meloche that night, frustrated parents and students voiced their grievances about the school's security and the teacher's suspension.
Student advocacy for mandatory African-American history course
A group of East students from the Cherry Hill East African American Culture Club advocated for a mandatory African American history course in order to graduate. After impassioned speeches by student activists from a variety of backgrounds at a virtual board meeting for Cherry Hill Public Schools in February 2021, the board voted 8–0 to make the course a requirement for graduation. This mandate, the first of its kind in the state, has been in effect since the 2021–2022 school year course.

2018 STOPit school shooting threats
In 2018, in the aftermath of the Parkland school shooting, the school district had adopted the STOPit app to enable students to report safety concerns to guidance counselors and school administrators. On September 7, 2018, an incident was reported on STOPit about a student who had made remarks about plotting a school shooting at Cherry Hill East. This report had included details about this particular student's remarks in person and on social media, discussing potential targets, and this person's alleged goals to kill as many students as possible and to make national headlines. A "shelter-in-place" was called because the student allegedly making these threats could not be located. The student was located and questioned by the police. This student convinced school officials and the police they never made threats against Cherry Hill East and identified a possible suspect. The suspect sparred evenly with questioning by school officials, but eventually confessed. Assistant Principal Louis C. Papa called this "a criminal act" and stated that appropriate actions were taken by the school district and the police against this student.
