eStem High Public Charter School Reviews

I started going to eStem when it opened it in 2008, when I was in the fourth grade. I graduated from there in 2017. Overall, I can say it was a good experience. My little sisters went there as well. It just recently started to get messy, and more like a typical public school. I think it’s because of the expansion. In my opinion, I think the money for the expansion should’ve gone towards the eStem schools that are already there. It could’ve went to building repair and maintenance (our buildings are over 100 years old), electronics, or towards programs for the students/faculty.

I have been at eStem since the 6th grade and I am now in the 12th. At first, it wasn't very welcoming because it was most of the same students who knew each other but after some time I met my two best friends. I believe it was only about three teachers that I've had, that didn't really push us as hard. Although, I know for sure that the eStem education is advanced because my other friends not at eStem who had been in a grade ahead of me were always going at the same pace that I was going in a lower grade. I do believe that eStem was preparing me and all the other kids for college and for the real world. Elementary through high school follow the same rules and that's what makes a habit and gets you ready for the real world. It is important that we all got to school at 8:00, had on the uniform and were in a busy environment like downtown because it all helps me now. Overall eStem was a great experience because I've made so many memories there that I will keep for the rest of my life.
I've been going to eStem's schools for eight years now and I wouldn't want to go anywhere else! I do wish the high school was still located downtown however. The food choices for lunch are a lot better than at most school and the teachers are more invested in their students.
