Johnny G. Economedes High School, also known as Economedes or JEHS, is a public school in Edinburg, Texas, (USA). It is part of the Edinburg Consolidated Independent School District and is one of the district's four high schools. The school is named for former Edinburg Fire Chief Johnny G. "the Greek" Economedes.
Expansion to all district high schools in 2010 brought a new performing arts center to JEHS. It is simply called the Performing Arts Center, or PAC. 
The school is currently a TEA-Recognized campus because of its high TAKS scores. It is a second time finalist of the College Board Inspirational Award and an AVID National Demonstrated School.
In 2004 the Jaguars football team went to the only playoff year in history of the school, losing in the area playoffs to the Corpus Christi King Mustangs 35-28.
In 2012-2013 the team again advanced to state playoffs, but lost at round one.
