Engineering & Science University Interdistrict Magnet

We are ESUMS where technical minds are ignited!
Engineering & Science University Magnet School (ESUMS) is a public college preparatory middle and high school serving Grades 6-12. We challenge students to imagine, investigate, and invent while preparing for demanding science, technology, engineering, and math programs at a collegiate level. ESUMS students engage in rigorous, relevant hands-on, "minds-on" activities and assessments. ESUMS seeks to develop highly-skilled, self-initiating, technical problem-solvers ready to address local and global challenges.
