Students usually enter ECHS at the beginning of their ninth grade year. Space is sometimes available for a few students in tenth or eleventh grade. The application period usually follows the Dallas ISD magnet school application schedule.

ECHS applications are available at www.dallasisd.org, at the District’s Magnet Fair, and from the school’s office.

There are several steps in the application process:
  • Return the completed application.
    • A transcript of school work.
    • A record of the current school year’s attendance.
    • Most recent standardized test scores – TAKS, ITBS or Stanford.
    • Return completed recommendation forms from administrators, counselor and teachers from the school.
    • Contact the ECHS office to take TABE (Test of Adult Basic Education) in the El Centro testing center. TABE is an online test covering Reading, Math, and English language skills.
    • Schedule a face-to-interview, for parents and students, with ECHS staff.
