The nationally recognized academic offerings at EPHS are rigorous and varied. We offer challenge, as well as support, to every student. Many of our students leave with college credits in hand, poised to continue their success at a post secondary level. Our support programs for English learners and students with special needs ensure that every student has the opportunity to achieve their goals.
Exposure to diversity is seen as one of the benefits of an EPHS education. We embrace cultural and ideological differences so that we can learn from one another and better prepare our students for the ever-changing world that awaits them. More than 50 languages are spoken by students in our school. Our students have numerous opportunities to travel internationally. We also offer ways to “travel” via internet/video communication with other cultures, including our sister school in Loudi, China. With a roster of more than 120 athletics and activities, there is truly a place for everyone at EPHS.
