I must start by saying that EHS truly has incredible, committed teachers who frequently went out of their way to engage me academically and support me personally. The facilities are top-notch, the setting is beautiful, and there was no concern of theft or similar campus dangers. My door was always left unlocked. However, the social culture at EHS was another story entirely, and the general atmosphere of rampant southern elitism, out-of-control misogyny, racism, homophobia, and pressure to conform to utterly specific beauty standards was very, very damaging to my fourteen-year-old self when I arrived there. I have not encountered ANYTHING to the same degree in college or elsewhere in my post-EHS life, and I was shocked by the kindness and open-mindedness of just about everyone I encountered in comparison in the first months after leaving. It is truly beyond the pale, and my experience there left many, many emotional scars.

Episcopal High School is an amazing institution & great preparation for life. The high school excels in academics, athletics, facilities and administrators. The faculty & staff truly care about the students that attend & make it their goal to readily prepare high school students for successful college careers and beyond.
EHS has surpassed my expectation of how they would help my son mature and grow. The staff are all very caring and they go above and beyond what they are expected to do. My son has only been there for 1 year and he has developed lifelong friendships, learned new skills, and I am very confident that he will be prepared and accepted into is dream college in 3 years.
