Unleash your inner genius.
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.
