Gender Segregation and Platoon YearsEdit

Beginning in 1966, East Jefferson was a boys-only school for grades 10 to 12. In 1968, a new girls-only high school, Grace King High School, was built but there was no new school for boys. By 1970, the school's attendance swelled to over 2000 boys and forced a two-shift "platoon" system to be implemented. Under the "A.M. & P.M." platoon shifts, the first classes went to school from 7 A.M. until noon, and the second shift went from 1 P.M. to 6 P.M. (the school cafeteria was converted to a library). In 1973, the school board began building a new all-male school near Kenner, called Alfred T. Bonnabel High. Even though it would not be completed until 2 years later, they decided to call the East Jefferson morning shift “Bonnabel” and the afternoon shift “East Jefferson”. The following year the two shifts flip-flopped. For the third year, the students who had been using the name “Bonnabel” moved into their new buildings, just north of I-10 near Power Blvd. All Jefferson Parish high schools returned to co-ed status in the early 1980s.

Varsity AthleticsEdit

On December 13, 2013 EJ's varsity football team finished the season 15-0 with a win against the Edna Karr Cougars, 38-28. This was EJ's first state title in school history and the first undefeated record in the regular season. They finished the season 10-0 then won their first playoff game since 1971. They then won the rest of the playoff games and finished the season with a bang by beating Edna Karr, finishing #23 in the nation.
