The Academy of Environmental and Social Policy (ESP) is a true small public school that provides all students a career-ready and college- preparatory program.  The great news is that if you are part of ESP this year (2014-15), you'll become a Magnet student with us next year!  At ESP we challenge ALL students to be critical thinkers, creative problem solvers, hardworking, collaborators, reflective, inquisitive, and thoughtful members of our community. ESP is a school that is safe, tolerant, and inclusive. Students consistently comment that ESP is a family-like school where every teacher demonstrates their commitment and dedication to students achievement through engaging activities, specific feedback and personalized instruction. We look forward to welcoming you to our ESP Family.
