East Syracuse Minoa offers unique learning opportunities for their students that other schools typically do not have. Project Lead the Way courses allow students that are interested in Engineering to use 3d printers and software that is used by many Engineering companies. The Automotive department allows students to work on a car throughout the year to eventually raffle off. Cosmetology department allows students to to learn skills that they would use in a hair salon or barber shop. There are other great electives that they offer such as Culinary and Child Development that really makes this school unique.
The staff is usually very bright and most of the teachers teach in a way that clicks with the students. There is a plethora of programs and classes at ESM for various fields of study, some of which include carpentry, auto tech, cosmetology and even a class which the teacher finds a company with the field you’re interested in to intern at. However the students are hit or miss when it comes to behavior. There is a severe juul vaping problem within the school walls amongst students.
