High School




In 9th through 11th grade, ELA students continue to read and analyze a wide range of texts in genres including poetry, novels, plays, biographies, nonfiction narratives, speeches, and films. They also learn to write in forms including essays, personal narratives, argumentative texts such as editorials, and research papers.


The EHS traditionally sequenced math courses extend the work of granting all students the opportunity to develop into creative problem solvers, critical thinkers, life-long learners, and more capable adults. Our program uses online resources through Odysseyware, consumable textbooks, interactive technology, and student-centered classrooms to develop deep conceptual understanding that supports ongoing growth and continued development in mathematics.


EHS students will graduate with a lasting understanding of science, having engaged in discussions about science issues and information, so they can continue into scientific careers and studies. Students will cultivate an understanding of core science ideas using hands-on activities with science and engineering practices and crosscutting concepts. Our science teachers are implementing alignment with the Washington State K-12 Science Learning Standards previously known as the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS).

Social Studies

In high school, students continue to develop reading, writing, analysis and research skills within local, state, national, and global contexts. Students apply their learning from previous years and use the conceptual understandings they have developed in civics, economics, geography, and history to explore contemporary issues and master the skills and content required in the Washington State Social Studies Standards. Throughout high school, students following the traditional sequence complete courses in World History, US History, Civics, and Contemporary World Affairs.
