About Us

Our faculty strives to provide programs that nurture intellectual entrepreneurs who cultivate ingenuity, imagination, creativity, as well as a civic responsibility. We challenge all our students to commit their best, to ignite their passions and interests of our learning school community and become the pace setters of the future.

We believe our students will become citizens who are both informed and involved; who possess the character to do what is ethically right; and achieve their highest personal potential. The growth and development of these beliefs is a critical step in preparing our students for responsible participation in both their local and global communities. Therefore, we aim to create an environment that allows students to pursue excellence, to be contributing citizens and to be well prepared to advance in the world of work and the ever changing world around them.

We have a state of the art facility, equipped with the latest in technology and materials, we are embarking upon many cutting edge initiatives and forging new directions in educational research and best practices. At EM High, we aim to challenge the traditional concepts of schooling in order to embrace the vibrant possibilities for our future 21st century explorers.

Our students are among the best in the world and strive to attain excellent results. We continue our proud tradition of delivering strong academic programs such as Advanced Placement studies and alternative instructional programs ranging from Pre-Engineering to Outdoor Leadership. We strive to foster learning, growth and the development of the whole student, but more importantly, we aim to personalize the learning experience of each and every student at EM High in pursuit of their success.
