  • AP Exam Payment Form Deadline

    This is a reminder that if your student wants to take an AP exam this coming May, they must hand in the completed payment form (found in the counseling lobby) and payment (checks made out to EHS AP exams) before January 31st. If they fail to do so, they will incur late fees, which are non refundable according to the collegeboard. If you pay for an AP exam before Jan 31st and decide not to take it at a later date, there will be a full refund. No late fees are refundable.

    All payments and payment forms are to be mailed in to EHS or handed into Ms. Kennison in the school counseling office, before that deadline. If you qualify for free and reduced lunch, please mark the appropriate box on the payment form.

    If you have any questions, please email

  • Multicultural Helpdesk 

    The EHS Multi-Cultural Helpdesk is open for the 20-21 school year! The helpdesk is currently located in the library to start the year but will be meeting some students remotely and throughout the building. The Multicultural Youth Program works with teenagers and young adults from diverse backgrounds, with a focus on working with youth and their families who may self-identify as multicultural or from an immigrant family.

    The goal of the EHS Multi-Cultural Helpdesk is to help students connect to resources, services, and programs in the community, develop leadership and peer mentoring skills, and gain the knowledge, life skills, and encouragement to succeed on their particular paths of education and growth.

    If you would like to make an appointment for yourself or your student to meet with the Multi-Cultural Helpdesk, you can email or contact your school counselor.
