There are two major steps for students in planning for next year's program of studies:
(1) registration and (2) scheduling. During January, EHS Registration information for the following year is distributed. Students then register for courses; that is, they select their programs of studies for the next school year. Based on student registration data, the school principal will determine courses/sections to be offered, staff needed, and a master schedule of classes for the next year. Therefore, students should register with care and after consultation with parents.
After students' registration plans have been approved by parents and counselors, We schedule classes for students for the fall, winter, and spring trimesters.

To be eligible for graduation, a student must have earned a total of 66 credits (minimum) in grades 9 through 12. It is possible to earn 84 credits during your four years at EHS. Many students accumulate far more than the minimum number of credits during their high school studies. All students are encouraged to select more than the minimum of required courses to take advantage of the broad scope of course offerings available.
There are 7 periods each day in a 12 week trimester. For each course passed, students earn 1 credit. If a student passes 7 courses each trimester, he/she will have earned 21 credits for the year.
7 credits x 3 trimesters = 21 credits earned that year
Note: Some courses meet for more than one class period and are worth more credit. These exceptions are noted in department course descriptions. The number of courses taken each year will depend upon student individual needs and interests. In no instance shall a student be enrolled for fewer than 5 credits each trimester in Grades 11 and 12. Students in Grade 9 and 10 must be enrolled for a minimum of 6 credits each trimester. (Students may enroll in study halls for no credit)
