School History

  • The youth of South Hillsborough County attended Wimauma School, grades 1 through 12, located in Wimauma, Florida, through the 1956-57 school year.

    East Bay High School was chartered in the fall of 1957. The original location served grades 7 through 12 and is the current Eisenhower Middle School.

    In 1972, the current East Bay High School building was constructed and housed grades 10 through 12. In 1974, the ninth graders were transferred from the middle school, and our grade structure of 9 through 12 is still intact today.

    East Bay High School, located in Gibsonton, Florida is a community high school. We offer students a traditional high school experience with dual enrollment opportunities, advanced placement classes and certification opportunities. Our school has raised its graduation rate by 15 points in the last five years by implementing a system of checks and balances to ensure each student remains on track. Our academic offerings include AP Psychology, AP Statistics, and AP Capstone. We also boast the NAF Academy of Health Science, Welding, Automotive Repair, Cosmetology, Veterinary and Culinary programs. We focus on differentiated instruction as we prepare students for life, and strive to meet each student’s needs as they prepare for success at the post-secondary level. As one of the oldest schools in Hillsborough County, we are proud to have provided so many members of the community with the opportunity to have “a great day at the Bay!
