• In honor of Black History Month, NAACP Northeast Queens Branch President and East-West School Community Advisory Board Member, Kenneth Cohen, sponsored and organized an assembly presentation for our middle school students.

    Our Jr. NAACP members introduced our guest performers.

    The hour long performance acknowledged the manycontributions from Black Americans who have helped shaped America.

    Our students also had the opportunity to perform on stage when Michael Jackson's Thriller was played.

    The Junior NAACP's mission is to encourage students to celebrate diversity and self-awareness through participation in open discussion, civic engagement, and community activism focused on social justice.

  • While many of us stayed indoors during the first snow storm of the year, a few of our high school students spent the day shoveling snow for seniors in our neighborhood.  Darren Huang, Jia He, Sen Xu, Andy Gao, and Corey Cheung (not pictured) helped clear walkways, steps and common driveways for senior citizens. The list of homes that need their assistance increases each year.  Thankfully our group of students who volunteer their time in this endeavor continues to grow.  Go East-West!

  • This Thursday, Feb. 2, from 5:00 PM to 7:10 PM.

    In honor of the diversity at East-West, the Chinese Culture Club, the foreign language department, and the PTA will be celebrating the Lunar New Year with our Second Annual Night Market.

    Last year, the Chinese Culture Club began this new East-West tradition by celebrating with the rest of New York City as the city recognized this holiday as a public school holiday for the first time. This year, we’re bringing it back and better than before!  This evening gala includes an international dinner, surprise market performances, and more than a dozen exciting game booths, a simulation new year count-down and much more!

    Join us!
