Elkhart High School is the proud home to over 3,400 students and 300 staff members on our two campuses. Elkhart High School's mission is to be a community where all members achieve academic and personal excellence.
EHS students at the main 10-12 campus are highly engaged in rigorous curriculum and hands-on learning through EHS' Six Schools of Study, while students in the EHS' Freshman Division focus on acquiring the necessary skills to succeed in school and begin to explore the schools of study.
Elkhart Community Schools delivers a rigorous academic experience for all students from PreK to Graduation. Learn more about ECS' Curriculum.
Students at ECS have endless opportunities to participate in extra-curricular activities, such as Band, Theatre, and Clubs. Learn more about ECS Activities.
Athletics are often a rallying point for a community and Elkhart is no different. With over 25 high school sports, as well as offerings at the elementary and middle school levels, ECS student-athletes give their all to proudly represent Elkhart. Learn more about ECS Athletics!
Elkhart students have the opportunity to earn a college Associates Degree prior to graduation. ECS currently offers over 30 classes with college credits through Elkhart High School and over 30 CTE programs that offer college credits or certification through the Elkhart Area Career Center. Learn more about our College and Career Readiness.
Just as important as college and career readiness is "life" readiness. In addition to teaching practical courses like personal finance, all ECS schools use a PRIDE rubric that recognizes students' positive behavior in five life-readiness areas: Persistence, Respectfulness, Initiative, Dependability, and Efficiency.
A $630,000 grant from the Indiana Department of Education will help ECS bring new and talented teachers into classrooms, as well as provide support for those already in the district looking into a career in education.
