School of Engineering & Sciences Reviews

The School of Engineering and Sciences offers as many programs and opportunities it can for such a small school. With a heavy emphasis on engineering and sciences, a number of professionals come to visit and speak about their field of work. The school's mandatory engineering elective takes the students from grade 7 - 12 throughout the FIRST progression, meaning various technologies and tools being used throughout the classroom. If a student may be interested in engineering, their robotics program accessible for all grades is a must. Additionally, all students, except seniors, are required to participate in the annual science fair. Students may choose a project of their interest to explore their field of interest.

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.
