All the teachers really cared about the students. They were willing to come in early, stay late, or give up their lunches to help students who were struggling. Many extracurricular activities were available, including strong music programs, art and sports. There are many award ceremonies each year for various things, and a scholarship award ceremony with many scholarships offered from the community. Overall, Esko is a great environment to learn academically and grow as a person.
