East Hills School offers special study areas in physical education, speech, art, library and media. Special areas of study are very deeply integrated into the classroom programs. The students are offered myriad opportunities for involvement in both vocal and instrumental music, intramural sports, an after-school art program, and computers. Thematic units are presented throughout the school; a literature based reading program is employed in the primary grades and a novel based approach is implemented in the fourth and fifth. Computer instruction, as with science, is accomplished in both the classroom and building laboratories.
One of the East Hills School Enrichment Programs offered is called Great Books this program, which is designed to challenge students to read literature and thereby bring their reading and critical thinking skills to a higher level. All classroom teachers are trained in this proven approach to teaching literature. Originally conceived as a program for gifted students, Great Books provides reading enrichment to all students in these grades.
