Lapeer East High School was a public high school located in Lapeer, Michigan. It was the rival school of Lapeer West High School. In 2010, all portable classrooms were removed and the school was reverted to 9-12 grade students. It was built in 1975 as a result of overcrowding of the former Lapeer High School, which became Lapeer West High School. Starting in 2014, Lapeer East will be renamed Lapeer High School due to the consolidation of the two high schools, the consolidation owing to declining enrollments at both high schools. Which was due to an increasingly low number of elementary and kindergarten enrollments.
