We are ESUMS, where we ignite young technical minds and imaginations!

Engineering and Science University Magnet School (ESUMS) is a public college preparatory middle and high school serving Grades 6-12. Here, we challenge students early on to imagine, investigate, and invent while preparing for demanding science, technology, engineering and math programs at a collegiate level. ESUMS students engage in helping to build their own curriculum with hands-on and "minds-on" activities and assessments, thereby creating the highly skilled, self-initiating, technical problem-solvers that today's society demands.


How to Know ESUMS is Uniquely Right for Your Child:

○ Your child has a passion for science, technology, engineering and math and desires a rigorous academic challenge.

○ Your child is inquisitive,challenged by creative tasks, gets excited by new ideas and pursues solutions to problems with persistence.

○ Your child works well at solving problems with other students in small groups.
