Facility Upgrades 2018-19
Many facility renovations were completed on the ETHS campus during the summer. We also expanded the use of certain spaces like the Meditation Studio and the Testing Center:
- Meditation Studio (N218): Teachers from all academic areas may invite their classes to the Meditation Studio for mindfulness training and guided meditation practice. Students may contact their teachers for questions.
- Testing Center (H222C) - updated 8/21/18: ETHS now has a dedicated space where students may take their makeup quizzes and tests. This will help minimize disruptions for students who are taking make-up tests, as well as for everyone in the classroom.
Entrance 3 renovation

Entrance 3 at the rear of the ETHS building has been renovated to create an accessible, secure and welcoming entryway to the Gym Wing. The entrance now includes a safety checkpoint, a covered walkway to Beardsley Gym with benches (rendering below), an elevator to second floor gyms, and accessible bathrooms on the upper floor.
As part of the new Entrance 3 construction, a walkway and seating area were designed with student needs in mind. The project was supported by the ETHS Foundation.
As a result of the expanded entryway for Entrance 3, the bike compound was modified and additional bike racks were installed inside of parking lot 3b, off of Church Street.
New Engineering Lab (A155)
A new engineering lab was added in the Arts Wing on the first floor to meet the growth of the highly successful Project Lead the Way pre-engineering classes at ETHS. The well-equipped, dynamic lab space will give students the hands-on experiences needed to be better innovators, collaborators, and problem solvers. This project was made possible in part through the generous contributions to the ETHS Foundation.
Theory Center (H320) and Science Labs (H318 and H322)

Thanks to the generosity of donor Leonard Schaeffer (ETHS ’63) and other alumni and parent supporters of the ETHS Foundation, a new chemistry/physics (“chem/phys”) Theory Center and two new science labs were created at ETHS. The complete overhaul includes a modern, flexible laboratory space, new lab tables and benches, modern technology, updated electricity and plumbing, and new chemistry hoods. The dedicated center is available to all ETHS science classes.
