This school district is absolutely horrible; it's very corrupt and the educational programs are not current. The teachers are mostly ineffective. There are a few who try, but fail. I haven't found one teacher at the JH or HS who is a highly effective teacher. How do they continue to have their jobs? Well, it's because the administration is just as bad; principals made to switch buildings in the fall due to misconduct who now are "Acting Superintendent" because the Superintendent just resigned due to harassment charges?!! Sports coaches who are told they have to take certain students on their teams, or who are told, "Welcome to the Mafia!" I could go on and on!! If you are considering buying a house in this school district, I strongly urge you to reconsider.
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.
I'm in the 7th grade it is so great.Usally kids would be like i hate my schol but eveone say i love it! it huge. the teacher are so nice and the do there jod wonderfully. i would say go in this shool district. its heard to be the best school district on the island.
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.
