    Eastlake High School faces Lincoln High School Friday in NBCSanDiego’s "High School Game of the Week."

    Instead of just focusing on sports, we're highlighting a unique aspect about the schools and its students.

    Lincoln High opened just a few years ago, so it's a very modern both inside and out.

    In our preview of the high school Game of the Week, we take a closer look at one of the competitors - Eastlake High School.

    Something that definitely makes this school unique is the school's performance theater. In fact, professional actors from the Old Globe Theatre in Balboa Park have performed plays there.

    There's really no other theatre like it on a high school campus. It has a huge stage, full dance studio and sound-proof rooms.

    As we highlight this week's high school football game of the week, we stop at Lincoln High to check out the school and some of the special programs offered there.

    Last year, actors from the Old Globe presented the musical "Kingdom" here at Lincoln, even before it ran at the Old Globe.

    For about a week, students got a chance to talk to the actors get advice from them and also take part in workshops that highlight everything that goes into these productions.

    It’s all thanks to a program called The Southeastern San Diego Residency Project, working to expose students to all the aspects of theater.

    In just a few months, the Old Globe is planning on performing another play here at Lincoln high for both students and for the community at a lower price than regular tickets.

    At Eastlake High School, students with Show Choir practice at 6 a.m. three times a week. Aside from their voice and their moves, they've got a lot of heart. They're planning to perform a Beatles medley during their homecoming half-time show.

    On the other side of campus, students are learning something completely different. Eastlake HS has a pre-engineering program and once a year, students can take part in a world-wide competition that deals with robotics. The club, called TitanBOT, has done well over the years and has won several awards. Students work from 2:30 p.m. until 8 or 10 p.m.

    The two schools face at 6:30 p.m. Friday
