Mission Statement 

The mission of Essex North Shore Agricultural & Technical School is to create a culture of academic and technical excellence, encourage continuous intellectual growth, and promote professionalism, determination, and citizenship for all students, as they develop into architects, artisans, and authors of the 21st-century community.

Core Values

This will be accomplished through a four-tiered approach, requiring both commitment and investment from all members of our community: 

Students will: 

  • take ownership for their learning by being active participants in their own education 
  • be respectful and considerate citizens both in school and in the community 
  • encourage and support growth in themselves and others 

Staff will: 

  • equip students with the skills necessary to have an array of college and/or career choices upon graduation 
  • model improvement of skills while implementing a rigorous, relevant, and rich curriculum 
  • encourage and support each other in order to create an environment where everyone feels safe to grow and take intellectual risks 

Caregivers will:

  • provide the at-home support necessary to be partners in education 
  • maintain clear and high expectations for student performance, in all areas, to foster the continual growth of each student 
  • guide their student towards continuous improvement 

General Advisory will: 

  • review and evaluate curriculum and instruction in order to advise on course materials 
  • support career and technical education with the current industry trends 
  • make administrators and instructors aware of potential internships and co-op opportunities for students
