Eastlake High School (EHS) opened its doors to students September 1992. An estimated 75,000+ students have attended EHS over the past 30 years. Eastlake High School is home-base for generations of students, alumni, and stakeholders, and is celebrated as the heart of the community. To commemorate this meaningful milestone, a community-wide event will be held August 13, 2022.
The Sweetwater District strives to offer students a school experience that is rigorous, equitable, welcoming, and propels student success. We are honored to celebrate Eastlake High’s 30th Anniversary giving the entire Eastlake community an opportunity to reflect on our past, celebrate our present, and share our hopes for the future. Thanks to all the students, staff, families, and community for their dedicated support in shaping the campus to what it is today. Thirty years later, we are seeing the benefit of their work.
– Sweetwater District Superintendent Dr. Moises G. Aguirre
One of the annual traditions at EHS is to hold a student “Lu-Wow” shortly after the beginning of the school year. To celebrate this important milestone, a public version of this tradition has been planned. All are invited to the free “Lu-Wow style” community open house on August 13, from 5:00 pm – 7pm at the Eastlake High School campus. Attendees will enjoy performances by students, appearances by sports teams, a scavenger hunt-style tour of the campus, historic photos on display, VIP appearances, and music by DJ Mike. Food will be available by the BBQ Club, Taco Land, and Kona Ice. There will also be other goodies and swag available for purchase.
The Alumni Lu-WOW is an amazing opportunity to welcome back our Alumni and community members to campus to celebrate the success of the last 30 years! The feeling of being back on campus and seeing familiar faces is what makes this such a special event. Being able to watch the student performances, share stories of our time at Eastlake and find ourselves in the picture displays will remind all of us how, “Once a Titan, Always a Titan.” The pride Titans take in all that they do is the very reason why Eastlake has been successful for the last 30 years and will continue to be the cornerstone for the community.

After the free community event, a ticketed (21 and older) social gathering will follow at Novo Brazil Restaurant (Otay Ranch) from 7:30pm-10pm. Tickets are $20 per person. The ticket price includes entrance to the private party, a beer/kombucha, light appetizers, celebration cake, and a commemorative gift. Tickets can be purchased at eastlakealumni.org.
Over the last 30 years, Eastlake High School has been the heart of East Chula Vista. The community of Eastlake has been immersed in the goals and vision of a school that provides their students with an excellent experience in academics, the arts, athletics and worthwhile activities. Along with a tremendous teaching and support staff, Eastlake High School has been a place where students can thrive and the community can take pride in cheering on our students in numerous events. The school has produced countless opportunities for students to pursue their dreams upon graduation. I am proud to help lead these ongoing initiatives to expand on the legacy of excellence at Eastlake High School. It is truly a special place and the next 30 years are going to be just as great. Go Titans!
