EHS and ESHS were named to the “Washington Post’s” list of America’s Most Challenging High Schools for the fourth year in a row. Across the state, only six high schools earned a spot on the list.

The list recognizes schools that have high levels of participation in rigorous coursework. Nationally, less than 11 percent of approximately 22,000 U.S. public high schools met the requirements to be ranked on the list.

Rankings are determined by participation in AP testing, International Baccalaureate programs and Advanced International Certificate of Education Tests compared to number of graduates. Out of the three tests considered, Elkhorn students only participate in AP Testing.
