I am proud to send my daughters to such a great school. Beautiful grounds, lovely clean school, the best equipment, and excellent teachers and guidance counselors. It just goes to show you that if you have an excellent staff and students, the school can run itself without a principal. Mr. Stimel is extremely lucky to be blessed with them, because he is ineffectual and has no contact with the parents or students. He is unaware of events that takes place under his roof and has been neglectful in using common sense to protect the safety of his students. Mr. Nocero should think seriously about replacing him with a better, more professional administrator... this would make the great ESM Jr/Sr HS an excellent educational institution.

The school is very nice, but the people aren't so much. When I started, the 7th grade students were very judgemental and rude. Things may work out diffrent for other people, but if I could choose, I would tranfer.

Very pleased with the school. Moved to the district last year. My child is in 8th grade this year and enjoys going to school on a daily basis. There is alot to be offered in this school for the kids. Guidance office was a pleasure to deal with in regards to my childs transition into the district. No complaints thus far.

School Recently merged. High School and Senior High are in one combined building. Not happy with children's progress. The district overview is overstated. The children are just not getting it. Teachers are not effective.

I just graduated in the spring, and those were the four happiest years of my life. I was very involved with the music department, and the value of that experience could never be measured or exceeded. I also liked how closely connected the music, art and theatre programs were. The music booster programs always had tons of parents jumping in, and PTA events were always successful due to the huge participation. As an honors student, I felt that I got the best education possible in a great setting. I always felt very safe, and free to express myself.

I have 2 children in the school and the opportunities for them are wonderful - The facilities can't be beat - I've been happy with the courses offered. There are many honors programs offered from the Jr High on up . ESM has the typical sports programs but in addition there are tremendous opportunities in the arts and music for non athletes, and they have incorporated the facilities for these kids too.

I have been helping out in this school, and it is beautiful in appearance, but also contains some impressive staff. There is terrific security, and has caring staff.

Posted June 3, 2006

I am taking my child out of this school. This school has had tremedous growing pains since it opened in 2003 -- from lack of resources (despite millions spent on plasma screen TVs and Corian counters in the science labs) to the inability to handle problem students to mediocre communication between faculty and parents. If you are considering moving tio this otherwise lovely part of Long Island, either find a home in another school district or find a provate school - difficult in these parts.

About the tests


Beginning in the 2012-2013 school year, the New York State Department of Instruction implemented new assessments designed to be aligned with the Common Core State Standards. The new standards for proficiency in these subjects are higher than in previous years and the percent of students earning a proficient score is expected to be lower as a result of this change. See this letter from New York's Commissioner of Education for more information on these changes.

In 2012-2013 New York used the New York State Assessments to test students in grades 3 through 8 in English language arts and math. The tests are standards-based, which means they measure how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of New York. The goal is for 90% of students to meet or exceed grade-level standards on the tests.
