Eastern Technical High School 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 was renamed in 1994. 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, take an entrance exam, and meet certain standards for acceptance to the school.


Eastern Technical High school received a 74.6 out of a possible 82.5 points (90%) on the 2018-2019 Maryland State Department of Education Report Card and received a 5 out of 5 star rating, ranking in the 99th percentile among all Maryland schools.[1]

On April 29, 2021, USNews ranked Eastern Tech as #132 high school in the nation. [2]


The 2019–2020 enrollment at Eastern Technical High School was 1172 students.[3]


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

In 2005 the Varsity Baseball Team won the school's first ever State Championship and just a few months later the Girls Varsity Soccer Team Won the second. [1]

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. The school colors are orange and black.

Though Eastern Tech has no home track, they have still produced state champions in a number of track events.
