East Fairmont High School is a public high school serving the eastern half of the town of Fairmont in Marion County, West Virginia. The school was founded by splitting the district of Fairmont Senior High School during the baby boom era, due to student growth.[citation needed] The dividing line is the Monongahela River. In 1993, a new, more modern East Fairmont High School was constructed near the Kingmont Rd. exit on I-79.

East Fairmont High School is fed by East Fairmont Middle School,[1] and offers many different sports to its students.

East Fairmont High School has an intense rivalry in sports with Fairmont Senior High School, and the schools share the historic East–West Stadium for football games.

The school is classified as "AA". The school colors are blue and gold and the mascot is the Bee.

The school is also known for its marching band known as the Busy Bee Band and Honeybees. The band has performed at the Rose Parade and the inaugurations of Presidents George H. W. Bush and George W. Bush.
