East High has been the topic of a lot of conversation so far this year as the school faced radical change and even possibly being shutdown. Saturday morning, some of East High's former graduates took to the halls of the school for a tour.
The tour was part of the Class of 1964's 50th anniversary reunion weekend. Dozens of former graduates walked through the halls of the building they once attended. Members say it was a thrill to to be able to revisit their former school and they are glad that it appears the school likely won't be shut down.
"We've been really concerned about the reality of what's happening here," says Tom Allen of the Class of 1964. "But it's no different than any other high school in any urban environment. I was a teacher at the elementary level in the city for twenty years, I think they are facing the problems that most communities are facing."
July 1 is the deadline for the University of Rochester to finalize their plan to take over East High. As always, News10NBC will continue track the future of East High as it develops.
