East View Secondary School (Abbreviation: EVSS) is a government secondary school located in Tampines, Singapore. The school will be merged into East Spring Secondary School in 2019 and will not admit students with effect from 1 January 2018.

History[edit]

East View Secondary School was established on 2 January 1987 at Tampines Secondary School, occupying 14 classrooms in the afternoon session. The school started with ten Secondary One Classes (4 Express stream and 6 Normal stream classes), which were run by thirteen teachers and four non-teaching staff. After a six-month stay at Tampines Secondary School, the school shifted to its new premises at 3 Tampines Street 42 in June 1987.

On 24 March 1990, the school was officially opened by the late Dr. Tay Eng Soon, Senior Minister of State for Education, and MP for Eunos GRC. To commemorate the occasion, the school donated $1000 to the Community Chest of Singapore and $1000 to the National Kidney Foundation. The school has also contributed to many public events.

On 20 April 2017, it was announced that East View Secondary will be closed down, and merged with East Spring Secondary School. [1]
