Escalante High School provides students support in developing proficient literacy skills. Being a strong reader and writer contributes to one's academic growth and opens doors to numerous opportunities following graduation.

EHS Culture of Literacy Project

On it's way for the 2022-2023 school year!!

Moqui Mini Library

8th Graders have begun painting a bookshelf donated by an Escalante community member. They'll be decorating it in Moqui colors and filling it with books for students, teachers, and Boulder-Escalante community members to enjoy.

How it Will Work

  • Leave books that you have finished reading and don’t need anymore.

  • Take books that you’re interested in reading.

  • Return books or pass them on to someone else.


We are grateful for the generosity from Boulder and Escalante residents, extended family members, and anonymous donors from around the country who have donated towards the EHS Literacy Program.
