History[ edit ] Maine East was known as Maine Township High School when it was built in as a replacement for the original Maine Township High School, which itself had been built in Untilwhen Maine West High School was built, it was the only school in the district.
The school was built with an indoor rifle shooting range and a swimming pool.
Over the years, the shooting range was closed and the swimming pool closed with a larger modern pool opened in a new section of the building. In the early s, Maine Township became the first high school in Illinois to teach courses in automotive repair and telegraphy.
As thanks, local merchants provided necessities to the staff free of charge. InMaine East's band director, Alexander Harley, along with his wife Frances, founded Maine Music Masters as a way of honoring musicians in the school band.
The idea spread and, inthe chapters at individual high schools were incorporated as Modern Music Masters. Today, it is the largest international honor society in music education.

This building's architecture inspired the design of Maine East HS. The original building was "L" shaped, with a long wing running north-south, parallel to Potter Road. A shorter wing runs east-west, parallel to Dempster Street, with both wings meeting at "the tower" where the main entrance is located.
Each of the wings is three stories tall.
The tower is six stories tall, though the higher floors are not in use today because of fire hazard there is only one narrow staircase granting access to these floors.
The fourth floor contains the new heating and air-conditioning systems. The "tower" originally housed the art and music rooms, but since houses the broadcasting transmitter for WMTH Following World War II and up into the late s aviation classes were given with the use of a Link Trainer installed in the tower.
