From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.

Lake Clifton Eastern High School is a public high school located in Northeast Baltimore City in an area known as Clifton Park, the result of a merger of Lake Clifton High School and Eastern High School.

Size

It is (as of 2003) the largest (in area) and newest school in the entire city. It has been said that Lake Clifton Eastern High School is the largest high school in terms of physical size on the East Coast, and when it first opened it was said to be the largest high school in the whole of the United States.

However, despite its large size, it has only 2318 students enrolled.

History

Lake Clifton Eastern High School was built sometime in the 1970s on top of Lake Clifton, a fact which has raised fears that the school may be sinking. It was originally known as simply Lake Clifton High School. In 1985, Eastern High School merged with Lake Clifton, and the Baltimore City School Board (part of the Baltimore City Public School System) changed the school's name to reflect this.

In 1997 a electrical fire destroyed the school's library. Shortly afterwards, a state of the art media center was built. Lake Clifton's library is the newest in the whole city. Lake Clifton's sports teams (as of the 2002-2003 school year) included wrestling, swimming, track and field, basketball, football, and tennis.

A decision was made in 2003 by the city school board to split up Lake Clifton into a smaller school, a trend that is occurring throughout the city school system with large high schools. Within the next few years, the school will cease to exist as Lake Clifton Eastern High School.
