(Worthy of note, there is a small square above the list of profile names ("Show Yearbook Photo") that if clicked, will allow you to see both names and faces. The page reverts back to names only once you go elsewhere on the site.) Need more help, read the page entitled "How To Use This Site". 

The 1962 SPUR is separated into three sections: the first, Admininstration, and Teachers; Section II is Student Government, Clubs and Honors; the III Section is Senior pictures, collages and a couple of ads of the times.

The fourth SPUR is a special & separate combined SPUR, following our class from the 8th grade through our Junior year. Those who started out with us but didn't graduate with us due to unforseen circumstances can reminisce with the rest of us. Enjoy the trip! 

The Web Site is a work in progress....many pages will change periodically,  The most current information is in the "Announcements" section following this introduction.

 EPHS Top Ranked EPISD High School in 2018 US News Assessment

Once again, US News & World Report assessment of high schools across the nation places El Paso High School as the top ranked traditional high school in the El Paso Independant School District and second only to San Elizario High among all traditional (non-charter, non-magnet only, non-STEM only, and non-prepartory) public high schools in El Paso County.  The Silva Healthcare Magnet, with a student body of 635, was the only EPISD school ranked higher (878 nationally v 1001 nationally) than EPHS.  Neither Coronado nor Franklin high schools was recognized in the national rankings.

US News takes into account Graduation Rate and College Readiness Index as primary elements of assessment weighted with Math Profiency and Reading Proficiency scores along with Advance Placement (AP) Tested percentage and AP Passed percentage.  The assessment also factors in Total Minority Enrollment Percentage and Total Economically Disadvantaged Percentage. 

El Paso High School received Siver Medal recognition as 1001st Best High School in the nation which places EPHS' ranking at 124th among all Texas high schools, traditional and non-traditional together.  A comparison of the San Eli and EPHS scorecards follows:

.........................................  San Eli        EPHS
College Readiness Index ........   63.6%        45.4%
AP Tested  .........................    94%            63%
AP Passed  .........................    57%            63%
Math Proficiency  ................     91%            82%
Reading Proficiency  .............    52%            67%
Enrollment   ........................  1,040          1,387
Minority Enrollment  ..............    99%           94%
Economically Disadvantaged  ..    97%           66%
Full Time Teachers  ...............    75              91
Student to Teacher Ratio  ......   14:1           15:1

The average for all high school students in EPISD is 25.9% College Readiness; 70% for Math Proficiency; and 56% for Reading Proficiency.

Ranked 1001st in the nation means there is a lot of room for improvement for the El Paso High community of studens, faculty, staff, parents, and alumni, but, when compared to the performance of public school student bodies throughtout El Paso, EPHS deserves accolades for it's recognition in the US News assessment..
