Meet Our Students
"My advice for younger students: Just go with it — come out of your shell, talk to people, talk to that teacher, take advantage of any and every opportunity. I’m so lucky that I don’t regret a thing about my time at ESA."

“It’s easy to tap into the enthusiasm of ESA students. You’re encouraged to have passions. There’s always a class you love and want to spend more time diving into. For me, that was French AP with Madame Maggini. She made me love speaking French.”
Lower School: PreK-3 through 5th Grade
Middle School: 6th-8th Grades
Upper School: 9th-12th Grades
Lower School Arts
"Upon entering upper school, I immediately realized that there was something unique about the way art was taught here. I was given the techniques and skills in the various forms of art, and then it was really up to me how I used those techniques to explore deeper in the art form. I remember walking in on the first day of metalworking and pottery, and the first question was ‘what do you want to learn, make, and take away from this class,’ instead of being told what you were to make and do. Of course, none of that would have been possible without the facilities and equipment available. Often I feel that I am not even in high school. I feel as if I am in college or even in my own studio due to such facilities that many other high schools would not be able to offer to their students."
"Coaching at ESA is a thrill, and it's easy to be passionate about what we do out here. Every year, I get the opportunity to work with athletes that balance a rigorous academic curriculum with a competitive spirit and atmosphere outside the classroom. The athletes work hard on a daily basis, and often during vacations to compete at the highest level in pursuit of individual and collective excellence on the playing field. While doing this, they exhibit the character and poise of a student well beyond their years. Who doesn't want to work with and coach players like that...?"
