Principal's Message

Josh Yost

Welcome to Estill County High School!  

My name is Josh Yost, and I’m honored to have the opportunity to serve as the principal of Estill County High School.  I graduated from Clay County High School in 2002 before attending the University of Kentucky for both my Bachelor’s and Master’s Degrees in Education.  I received my Rank I in Educational Leadership from Asbury University. I spent the first eleven years of my teaching career teaching high school social studies at West Jessamine and North Bullitt High Schools.  Last year, I served as the assistant principal at Estill County Middle School.

This year, we are focused on helping our students achieve Engineer Excellence in everything they do.  Across the school, you will see posters with #EngineerExcellence and ESTILL on them.

E- Excellence

S- Strength of Character

T- Teamwork

I- Initiative

L- Leadership

L- Learning

These are the characteristics we want each student to exhibit whether it be in academics, extracurricular activities, or their lives away from school.  Helping each student reach their full potential and gain the skills necessary for college, vocational school, military, or the workforce is our goal here at ECHS.  

Please feel free to contact me if you ever have any questions or need information.  We’re excited to have a great 2019-20 school year, and I hope to meet many of you at our events throughout the year!
