FAQs

What is an Entrepreneur High School? 

EHS is a wall-to-wall entrepreneur high school chartered by San Bernardino City Unified School District and located in a former Kmart building in the city of Highland.  EHS teaches students the skills they need to develop and launch businesses, while also preparing them to attend competitive colleges in California and across the nation.

 

Why should I enroll now? 

When EHS is at capacity, we will have 200 students per grade level.  That’s not a lot of kids for such an innovative program.  And now that school is open and families are taking tours every day, there will be a waiting list very soon.  If you are interested, sign up at BeABoss.org, or stop by the school office.

 

Can I get into college with this school? 

Absolutely.  EHS students are engaged in 2 curriculums, entrepreneurship and college prep.  All of our students will graduate with the skills to launch a business, and the transcript to compete for spots at top colleges. We have an on-campus college center that provides college admissions information, application assistance, college field trips and helps students navigate the college process.

 

Will you have sports? 

Yes.  For our first year, EHS will have wrestling, basketball, and cheer.  Moving forward, we will add sports based on demand.

 

Will you have dances and proms? 

Yes! beside all of the new features of this cutting edge school, we will also have all of the events and activities that traditional high schools have.

 

Will you have AP courses? 

Yes, we are making plans to offer both AP and Dual Enrollment Courses in the next 1-2 years.  

 

Are the teachers credentialed? 

Yes.  As a public school in California, we adhere to the same requirements that all other schools in the district follow.

 

Do you have computers and lab access? 

We have 1 to 1 computing at our school, which means every student has access to computers and/or tablets every day, all day.

 

What kind of extracurricular activities do you have? 

For our first year, we will be offering a number of clubs and sports for our students -  ASB, Dance, Drama, E-sports, Basketball, Wrestling and much more!  And of course we will continue to add to the list based on student interests.

 

Do you have a free and reduced food program? 

Yes, we do have a free and reduced lunch program. All Families may apply for the free and reduced lunch program

 

Do have a dress code? 

Yes.  Depending on the day of the week, students can wear EHS-branded clothing, professional attire, or casual dress.

 

Are you WASC accredited? 

We will do our initial WASC visit in the spring of 2019, and we should receive WASC accreditation by the fall of 2019.  All new schools must go through the same process.  In addition, all of the other existing schools in our organization are WASC accredited.

 

What is your facility like? 

Our facility is one-of-a-kind.  Because we want students to think differently, we needed our building to look different.  From the awe-inspiring atrium that greets visitors when they enter the building, to the black box theater, student center, or modern, luxurious classrooms, EHS feels more like a corporate headquarters than it does a high school.

 

Do you have security?

We have several layers of security that protect our students and staff, including wrought iron fencing around entire campus, security cameras, and 3 full-time security guards, and key-card entry for all classrooms.

 

Each classroom is only accessible with a keycard, there is around the clock security staff in the hallways and parking lot areas, and security cameras in the hallways.

 

Do you work with the District?

We are chartered through the San Bernardino City Unified School District, which means the SBCUSD school board approved our charter to operate as a public high school.  And beside that, we have a great working relationship with the local school district, as evidenced by the 2 other schools that we have chartered through them.
