My children just started at ECMS and every day they are very excited to go to school. The teachers are well educated and the students are all nice to each other. One thing we are concerned about is the amount of homework our children receive. Sometimes our children are given a lot of homework which takes them the whole evening to complete. We believe that overall it was a great choice to move our children to this school.
My daughter has recently promoted from Esperero, and I am amazed at the quality of this school. Many schools challenge a student in math or science, but at Esperero she was greeted with high expectations in music, spanish, and writing as well. I can not imagine a better, more motivated staff - or a better place for my child to get a middle school education.
My Daughter just graduated from Esperero, we were really satisfied with the quality of academic programs. It was a great experience for our daughter, gave her the stepping stones for High school.
Esperero Canyon Middle School provides an exceptional educational experience for all children. The school has a student centered outlook. For example, last year the site council and several student representatives helped to facilitate the development of a student created code of honor. The administrtaion and staff are also dedicated to providing an environment where all students can acheive academically as well as develop strong personal skills of organization, time management, problem solving, and self-directed work habits. The teachers all stress the use of Habits of Mind that encourage the students to monitor their own progress and teach them to be self-directed learners. The staff also works hard to plan learning opportunities that are both interesting and aligned with state standards. My daughter is always challenged and enjoys the time she spends at school.For example, this year she participated in a mock trial where parents came in to be the judges.
This is an awesome school. The teachers and staff are very supportive of the students. The extracurricular activities are outstanding, offering crafts classes and sports teams. The parent involvement is incredible as well... The parents and teachers aloso come up with the best field trips, socials, etc! This is an INCREDIBLE school!
The school is committed to providing high quality education, so the students' work load is high--there is a lot of homework to do. Great field trips are offered. Parents are involved a lot. Most kids come from well-to-do families but of course they have problems too. The school has two conselors which is not bad for a small school as it is. A few programs are in place to meet students' individual needs. One concern is the students' 'attitude'--some are very rich and spoilt so girls' clothes are a huge deal, or excellent grades can bring unhealthy snobbism. Amazingly, about half or more of the students' body are on the Honor Roll.
