TOP SR. SCHOOL STUDENTS OF 2018/2019
Maturity, workload management, time management, decision making. These are all important skills that 10th Graders are forced to work on. The switch from “yellow to blue” can be stressful and overwhelming, especially in the first term. The topics are a little less generalized and most of the time a whole new subject is introduced!
You have to make decisions on your career path and graduation is just a little bit closer. Clubs and extracurricular activities get a little more interesting. 10th Graders can participate in the Annual Ministry of Education’s Debating competition and take part in the ESHS senior concert band and even in ESHS Rams Radio! Though the switch may be tough, only the strong and determined come out on top. Today we celebrate these determined students.
There was a total of 192 students enrolled in 10th Grade for 2018 to 2019 school year. Of those students, the following students prevailed and made it to the top 10.
A special congratulations go to the wonderful Ms. Michaela Potter for placing 1st out of 192 students with an amazing GPA of 90.04. She believed she could, so she did. Excellent job Ms. Potter!

A couple years ago, this would’ve been the grade of graduation (prior to the addition of the 12th grade). The 11th Grade class can be described as eager, talented and just itching to make it to their final year. The workload is a little more hefty and students have grown to be a little more mature as well. CXCs, building credits, Community Service hours and Job Training are just a couple of things that 11th Graders are plagued with and it can be very stressful for the students. Nevertheless, it builds character and strength and in this cut throat world, only the courageous and determined can make it to the top. Without further ado, here is a list of the top 10 students of 11th Grade for the 2018 to 2019 school year.
