EAST® (Environmental and Spatial Technology, Inc.) is unlike any other model in modern education. It is a project-based, service-learning oriented program that provides students with high-end technology available in the most progressive fields in the world. At its heart, EAST is a coordinated effort to provide today’s students with an educational atmosphere that allows them to gain insight into their own abilities to acquire and use information, solve problems and develop valuable experience. Since its inception in 1996, the EAST model has expanded to over 200 schools in five states (Arkansas, Iowa, Louisiana, Oklahoma and Pennsylvania).

The EAST program at Hot Springs Middle School coordinates with local nonprofits to enhance the real-world experience of our students. EAST students are highly motivated and caring young men and women that make a difference in our city and state. If your student is interested in learning computer programs of the 21st century while making an impact please contact Hot Springs Middle School for an application.
