Take Action >>>Live In Motion!!

The high school experience plays an important part in personal growth and development, lays the foundation for post-secondary options and prepares students for life beyond high school.
You have opportunities to meet new people and the responsibility to develop new skills and discover new interests. It is the expectation that each student take the responsibility to set goals, to choose classes and activities and try new things, understanding that failure is a mile marker on your path to success.
It is an expectation at Mankato East High School that all students and faculty embrace our motto and core values. The motto TAKE ACTION>>>LIVE IN MOTION, challenges each of us to pursue our goals and live out the core values as established in District 77 and adopted at Mankato East.
