East High School is a public high school in the Salt Lake City School District in Salt Lake City, Utah, United States. It serves grades nine through twelve in general and special education. East High School was founded in 1913  and currently has an enrolled student body of around 1,900. It is located at 840 South 1300 East in the East Bench neighborhood. The original building was completed in 1913, and the current structure was built in 1997. 
Most of the Disney Channel film High School Musical was filmed at East High School. The opening scenes of its first sequel High School Musical 2 (including the film's opening number, " What Time Is It?") were also filmed at East High. Additional filming took place in St. George. The filming of the second sequel High School Musical 3: Senior Year began at East High on May 3, 2008.
In 2017 the school re-purposed two locker rooms below the gymnasium and washing machines in order to accommodate homeless students.  The non-profit organization Chapman-Richards Cares donated a washing machine to the school. About 100 students at the time were homeless. 
In July 2017, a flood caused about $3 million in damages to the school.
Much of the Disney Channel film High School Musical and parts of its two sequels, High School Musical 2 and High School Musical 3: Senior Year, were filmed at East High. As a result, the school has become a destination for some tourists. In the summer of 2007, the school received 40 to 50 visitors per day who wanted to visit the location of the film. 
In 2007, three members of the football team were arrested and charged with various offences including forcible sodomy, attempted forcible sodomy and sexual abuse. Incidents similar to this occurred three times during the same season. The players were removed from the football team  and expelled from school.  In March 2008, one of the defendants was found guilty of two first degree felonies: forcible sexual abuse and attempted forcible sodomy, in addition to a misdemeanor charge of lewdness; he also faces additional sex and assault charges for an incident with two children he was baby-sitting.  He was ordered into custody, where he was sentenced to mandatory therapy, and was directed to write apology letters to his victims.
