EAST @ J.O. Kelly Middle School began its program in August 2014. EAST or Environmental and Spatial Technology is unlike any other instructional model in education today. It is a project-based, service-learning oriented program with a heavy infusion of the latest high-end technology available in the most progressive fields in the world. At its heart, EAST is a coordinated effort to empower today’s students with an educational atmosphere that provides them insight into their own abilities to acquire and use information, solve problems and develop valuable experience.
