Before and After School

The EMS school day is flexible to accommodate both working families and the passions and interests of our students.

A safe environment to continue to explore schoolwork, hobbies, or extracurriculars benefits our EMS families and is good for social skills and emotional growth in our students.

We have options for students both before school, starting at 7:30 a.m., and after school, until 6 p.m.
