Pretty good school with a great teaching staff and a host of after-school activities.But many kids are bad mannered and have bad behavior.

I really do not understand why people say "it's a diverse school" what does that even mean. The world is diverse. It's a given stop saying that. That it's even noted or said is the problem.

I love the fact that my daughter is excited to go to school each day. That is a tribute to the teachers she is always talking about.

I am a junior at ehhs and its been a good three years. It's been fun. The teachers there are great. The school may have bad name but it is a good school as long as you keep your studies up and participate in sports.

All the kids did was disrupt class and cheat off me. The teachers did nothing what so ever to make ...  Read more

'Don't judge a book by it's cover', this school may not appear to be the prime place to send you son or daughter, but the teachers here fantastic. I just graduated in 2004 and can imagine having gone somewhere else. The diversity makes this school and town special and fun. We have a good principle and ...  Read more

I am a present student at EHHS. I am a junior at the school. I think that the school is an overall good school. The staff members there are great. There are a lot of activities and extracurricular activities for students to be involved in and stay out of trouble. Our principal, Mr.Jordan, does a ...  Read more
