Eastern Technical High School is a 1997 Maryland Blue Ribbon High School and a 1999 USDE New American High School located in Essexmarker, Baltimore County, Marylandmarker. Along with their regular classes, students enrolled at this magnet school participate in a career major of their choosing. Academic areas include Allied Health, Automotive Technology, Business Management and Finance, Construction Management, Culinary Arts, Engineering Careers, Information Technology, Law Related Careers, Multimedia Communications and the Teacher Academy of Maryland. The school also features a variety of sports teams for both girls and boys.

Eastern Technical High School (ETHS) used to be known as Eastern Vocational Technical High School (EVT, Eastern Voc-Tech), but due to lack of participation in the vocational program and an increased demand for technology education, the vocational program was removed and the school renamed. Unlike the other high schools in the area, Eastern Tech is not districted - it is not a "home" high school for any students regardless of location. All students must apply and meet certain standards for acceptance to the school.

Athletics

Eastern Technical High School is known for the success of several of its sports teams.

With no home track, Eastern Tech produced a State Champion 110m hurdler in 2005. In 2006, Eastern Technical won State Championships Boys and Girls long jump, Boys 400 meter run, Girls triple jump and 1600 meter run. In 2005 the Varsity Baseball Team won the schools first ever State Championship and just a few months later the Girls Varsity Soccer Team Won the second. [1]

Built originally as a middle school, Eastern Tech lacks a 400 meter track as well as the number of fields that many high schools have and, as a result, many teams practice on other campuses around the Essex area, such as the neighboring Kenwood High School or CCBC Essex. The school's mascot is the Maverick.

Career majors

Although no longer a vocational school, all students attending the school have a career major class during their sophomore, junior, and senior years. The majors offered at Eastern are: Allied Health, Automotive, Business and Administration, Communications/Multimedia and Design, Computer Aided Drafting (Discontinued beginning in Fall 2007), Construction, Culinary, Engineering, Information Technology, Law Related Careers, and Teaching Education. In previous years some programs such as the Engineering major required students to begin career major classes in their freshman year. However that practice has recently been abandoned to give all students a chance to experience the "swing". This course allows students to spend a few weeks at a time in classes pertaining to each major in order to aid in their career choice. All 9th graders have to go through the swing in order to receive their Technology Credit as required by the state. In the present, Eastern Technical High School remains a Blue Ribbon School. "A School Like No Other."
