Welcome to Olathe East High School
Olathe East High School provides students with a tremendous education in a safe and caring environment. Not only do our students learn and excel to the highest level academically, they are also quite successful in our performing arts and athletic programs. We are proud that many of our students also provide service to both our school and community. Olathe East High School was recognized as a National School of Excellence in 1998 by the U. S. Department of Education. Our tradition of excellence continues!

Our third annual Homecoming Extravaganza is on Wednesday, October 7th from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. in the south parking lot. Join us for a pep rally featuring fall sports and the Homecoming court. This FREE carnival-style event has something for everyone, so you won’t want to miss out! Compete in a bungee run, dunk teachers in a dunk tank, jump in a bouncy house, get pictures in the photo booth, and much more! Gift cards to Panera, Chipotle, and Cold Stone Creamery are just a few of the prizes up for grabs. Food will be provided, so come hungry!
Hawks Bleacher Creatures
In an effort to ignite the excitement of our little Hawks, Olathe East is starting the “Hawks Bleacher Creatures Program!” It is the hope that this program will welcome our feeder-families to the Olathe East community and encourage them to attend/get involved at our activities/athletic events.
Children participants, ages 3-12, will be involved in a fun, athletic support program for Olathe East. They will be able to run through the tunnel and be on the field when the team comes out and participate in a chant with the Hawks Cheerleading squad. For more information, please read the Hawks Bleacher Creatures Brochure.
