EHS is now utilizing Apex Learning for all it's core subjects including English, Math, Science, and Social Studies. Electivies such as Spanish have also been adopted.
Apex Learning is the leading provider of digital curriculum for secondary education to the nation’s school districts. The company’s comprehensive, standards-based online courses help schools successfully engage all students in rigorous coursework and prepare them for high school graduation and beyond.
With the Apex Learning digital curriculum, teachers are able to more effectively differentiate instruction and spend more time working one-on-one with students to address individual needs. Multimedia instructional content motivates and engages students, provides multiple representations of concepts, and addresses different learning styles. The ability to move at their own pace allows students to take as much — or as little — time as they need to master the material. The Apex Learning digital curriculum supports success for all students, from those not prepared for grade-level academic challenges to those capable of advanced coursework.
EHS is utilizing another computer on-line environment called NISD eClassroom. This on-line digital curriculum is very similar to the Apex Learning described above, providing the same student-teacher advantages. The eClassroom courses are developed and supported by highly qualified NISD personnel with many years experience in classroom curriculum development. Currently "Health On-line", the Business, and the Information Technology courses are provided with eClassroom as part of the group of electives for students wishing to attend EHS.
