East Jefferson High School is a public high school located in Metairie in unincorporated Jefferson Parish, Louisiana, United States.[1] It serves portions of Metairie and Kenner.[2][3][4]

East Jefferson High School was built in 1955 in a residential neighborhood. The school serves grades 9–12. It is a part of the Jefferson Parish Public Schools system.

East Jefferson had been using "A.M. & P.M. platoon shifts" where the first classes went to school from 7 a.m. until noon, and the second shift went from 1:00 to 6:00. In 1973 they started building a new all male school named Alfred T. Bonnabel High. Even though it would not be completed until 2 years later, they decided to call the morning shift “Bonnabel” and the afternoon shift “East Jefferson”. The following year the two shifts flip-flopped. The third year the student that had been using the name “Bonnabel” moved into their new building just north of I-10 between David Dr. and Williams Blvd. On December 13,2013 EJ's varsity football team finished the season 15-0 with a win against the Edna Karr Cougars, 38-28. This was EJ's first state title in school history and the first undefeated record in the regular season. They finished the season 10-0 then won their first playoff game since 1971. They then won the rest of the playoff games and finished the season with a bang by beating Edna Karr, finishing #23 in the nation.
