Course registration is an exciting time for our school as students consider which courses they will take next year. In this process, students should consult with their family, counselor, and teachers. They should consider progress thus far, dreams for the future, and how high school experiences can help achieve those. Our goal for you is that you maximize your time in high school by building relationships, pursuing your passions, and having truly inspiring educational experiences. At EPHS, we offer an amazing variety of courses to allow you to personalize your learning. As students select courses, we encourage them to challenge themselves, try new things, plan, and be proud of all they will accomplish.
Please Register Carefully
Once the high school schedule is finalized, a student’s ability to switch, drop, add, or otherwise modify their course registration will be extremely limited. Register only for courses you intend to take and complete next year. The availability of courses described in this guide will be based on registration requests and staffing availability.
Listed prerequisites are courses or qualifications that must be met before a student begins the listed class. Students not meeting a listed prerequisite may be removed from the class.
A listed Registration Recommendation in a course description is highly recommended and designed to insure accurate course placement and student success.
Because a thorough registration process occurred in February, there will not be an opportunity to change schedules. A student can only drop a class the first week of a term for the following reasons:
- Not having the pre-requisite for the class listed or are significantly misplaced as evidenced by previous course grades.
- Having failed a class.
- Obvious scheduling errors (2 classes scheduled in the same hour).
- A class needed for graduation is not listed or was dropped from the schedule.
- The schedule is unbalanced (2 open hours in a term, four “heavy” classes in one term).
Students dropping a class after the first week of a new term will receive an F.
Reminder: Freshmen and Sophomores are expected to carry a full schedule throughout the school year. Juniors and Seniors are expected to carry a minimum of 3 classes per term.
