From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

East Stroudsburg Area School District is a public school district located in the Poconos of northeast Pennsylvania. The headquarters are located on North Courtland Street in the Borough of East Stroudsburg. The district is the second largest in the county in terms of territory and is split into two parts: South and North. The Superintendent of Schools is Dr. Rachael R. Heath.

Split

Originally, at the time of its conception in 1891 East Stroudsburg Area School District consisted of only one high school and intermediate school. However, due to rapid growth in the area, the district split into two parts: South and North. They are split in terms of athletics and schools, but have the same district leaders. The South high school is located in East Stroudsburg Borough and the North high school is located in Lehman Township in Pike County.

Mascot

The mascot of East Stroudsburg Area School District was originally only the cavalier, or "cav" for short. However, because of the split, North's mascot became the timberwolf or "T-WOLF". The cavalier is now just the South's mascot.

Coverage

The school district consists of six municipalities in Monroe County and Pike County.

Construction projects

There are two major constructions going on within East Stroudsburg School District.

High school renovation

East Stroudsburg High School South had undergone a massive renovation that lasted for the past several years. This project made the high school more spacious, safe, and attractive, and included the additions of a much larger gymnasium and a turf field in the stadium.

New elementary school

There was another project recently finished to build a new elementary school off of Route 447 in Smithfield Township. It took some students from Smithfield and J. M. Hill Elementaries when it was finished, allowing for less crowded classrooms in these two elementaries. Also, with more space, J. M. Hill was able to allow fifth graders back into its building, as that grade had been residing in a modular near J. T. Lambert Intermediate.
