My overall experience at the School of Engineering and Sciences (SES), I enjoyed it a lot. Not many people tend to like it because it is a smaller community and school. However, with this small community-like school, you have the chance to engage more with the teachers. SES is also different from other schools because they have "integrated units". These are semester projects that revolve around STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics). These units allow students to expand their creativity, communication skills, and exposes them to new technology.

My experience at SES is definitely one I will never forget. Because it is considered a small school, by the time I walked the stage to get my diploma, I felt like I knew everything about everyone, and the school itself had become like a second home to me. The teachers all come from such different backgrounds and each manages their class in such different ways that I never got bored of learning. A diverse environment and projects that all connected to real issues and situations in the world has prepared me for finding my place in society and our rapidly changing world. In addition, SES goes as far as it could to prepare its students for college. It encouraged me to make good choices about my education and future career. I consider myself lucky to have gone to a school that cares so much for its students.
This school has an incredibly diverse ambiance. With such a small populated school, it was unexpected what various races, cultures, orientations, etc. are found here.
This school is very unique in that each student is heavily encouraged to follow the studies in engineering and science. Each year, every student must participate in the annual science fair; numerous honorable mentions and award placements are received. Those qualified are then advised to join the regional science fair.
Despite the obvious push in academic endeavors, I do feel this school lacks a few aspects that affect our high school experience. I, personally, would like to be more well educated in expectations of the real world. This would include assistance in helping us obtain community service hours, knowledge on obtaining various licenses, and financial literacy.
