About East Central High School

Welcome to East Central High School, home of Hornet Pride. The administration, faculty and staff of the high school are committed to providing a quality education for all 3000+ students enrolled at our campus. Our mission is to inspire learning by providing interesting and meaningful experiences for every student-every minute-every day.

We believe that in order to be successful, students must be creative and responsible problem solvers and have the skills and attitudes on which employers can build. To assure success, we offer a challenging curriculum relevant to the real life experiences within our community. We instill in our students the desire to be lifelong learners in a continually changing world. East Central High School is the educational, social and economic center for a community of diverse ethic and socioeconomic backgrounds.

Being the only high school in a district spanning 296 square miles, we are sensitive to the needs of students from urban and rural areas. With over 50 clubs and organizations on campus, we provide students the opportunity to participate actively and successfully during their four years with us. Throughout the years, East Central High School students have won numerous individual and team awards at the local, state and national levels. We are a 6A UIL campus with enriching competitive programs in athletics, fine arts, career and technology and general academic programs. ECHS annually celebrates students who have achieved National Merit, National Hispanic and/or National Achievement Scholar status in addition to a number of students who have earned AP Scholar awards.

East Central High School continues to be at the forefront of change that will best serve our students as we also serve as a role model for other schools across the state of Texas. Every graduate from ECHS will be literate problem solvers who will be intrinsically motivated, technologically competent, calculated risk takers, gritty, resilient, positive with a strong work ethic, goal-oriented, creative and post-secondary ready.
