English Department Required Summer Reading 2022
Every Knight is full of brain power and creative energy. We help our students free it. How? Small, intense classes and state-of-the-art facilities, for starters. Plus, mind-opening courses: Through our Interim Term, students travel to experience Chinese culture first-hand, uncover the complexity of baseball statistics, and design their own runway fashion shows. EHS teachers are experts at spotting talent, drawing out strengths, and pushing students to be fearless explorers. They challenge you to question, test, reimagine, and reinvent the world.
So get ready: Your inner engineer, web developer, or poet is about to STAND OUT.
Through a rich offering of over 180 courses across the Four Pillars, EHS helps students to develop independence and self-direction, creative problem-solving skills, intellectual curiosity, persistence, and open-mindedness. Discover the depth and breadth of our curriculum.
EHS strives to respond “to the individual needs and capabilities of each student” by offering support from afternoon tutorials, advisors, grade level deans, and an academic assistance program. Learn more about how we support our students.
As our students discover their interests, our robust college counseling team of seven works hand-in-hand with EHS families to discover the perfect fit for life after EHS. Explore how we prepare our students for the college process.

Each faculty and staff member is charged to give each child the tools, the opportunity, the support, the nurturing and, above all else, the love to discover—for themselves—the kind of Knight they want to be. For teachers and students alike, it’s a more ambitious and challenging path. But nearly 40 years of experience tell us that it is a path worth following.
English Teacher and Department Chair
I am fortunate to live out my vocation surrounded by other like-minded colleagues who value student success and well-being above their own. EHS has trusted me to do my best to identify my charge’s gifts, make them known, build their confidence, and provide the support necessary for them to express them fully. Whether it is in the arts, in athletics, in the classroom, or in Chapel, EHS has an outlet to manifest these gifts.
Principal & Science Teacher
The environment at EHS creates go-getters. If you want to try an activity or start a club, the school provides support. I’ve especially enjoyed my history classes with Mr. Lerch, Mr. Lauer, and Mr. Schwarz.
