East Central School District #2580 serves the cities of Sandstone, Askov, Bruno, and Kerrick. It encompasses approximately 627 square miles. East Central was first opened in the 1986-87 school year when Sandstone and Askov consolidated. At that time, the high school and elementary school were located in Sandstone and the middle school was in Askov. In 2004, East Central opened its doors to a new facility, a PreK-12 building, located between Sandstone and Askov. This building houses the preschool, elementary school, secondary school, and district office. Our 80-acre campus, located across from Banning State Park, provides a beautiful natural environment to help foster a unique learning experience.
