Admissions

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/lassiter, 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 – STAR, 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 students with ECHS staff.
