In 2005, Elmore County High School celebrated a landmark birthday - 100 years. ECHS opened her doors in 1905 under the name Eclectic High School. However, those who attended had to pay tuition because the community couldn't afford to operate a school. Finally in 1910 the county of Elmore became eligible for county high school - and Elmore County High School was born and officially opened her doors

under her new name on September 19, 1911. On February 24, 1913 and again in 1914, the school was destroyed by fires. The town kept rebuilding and they were determined that the school would stay open. As a result, for over a year ECHS was housed in temporary quarters. Once rebuilt the second time, the school continued to grow and in 1934 two new wings were added. In 1935, the Southern Association of Secondary School and Colleges granted her accreditation and has maintained that accreditation for the past 74 years. As the school population increased, tragedy struck once more, when fire destroyed the building again. Elmore County High was rebuilt and reopened her doors in 1940 and she still stands today. Major renovations were completed in 1985 to the main building and the annex and in 1994 a new cafeteria was built. In 1996 the library was moved to the cafeterias old home. Finally, in 2000 Elmore County High school became a 9th thru 12th grade school. A new middle school was built and the 7th and 8th graders moved "down the hill". Recent projects include a new band room dedicated in the fall of 2006, renovation of the home section of Burt-Haynie Field in 2007, and renovation of the old band room into a technology classroom in 2008. When the doors opened in 1905, she housed approximately 75 students. Today over 540 students walk her halls on any given day. As we continue to grow we do not know what the future holds . . . but we can never forget the many individuals who once attended this school and were proud to be apart of her memories.
