This is my first week at ESMS and I love my school! My teachers really care and we have lots of electives like mariachi, jazz, drumline, art, drama, Spanish, mandarin, computers, yearbook, and leadership--- I want them all!!!!! My counselor Ms. Lopez rocks. Every morning Dr.G says hi to me and makes me feel special :)

This school has really turned around. It is now an International Baccalaureate school. The new principal really believes in our kids and community. You need to see all the improvements taking place inside the classrooms, school grounds, and with amazing partnerships. This will become the gem of the district.

The magnet is tolerable but the actual school is just horrible. Racism is everywhere and teachers turn a blind eye to it. I would not go to this school. Don't move here if you're planning to.
