We are a Capturing Kids' Hearts School!

Our vision and mission is centered around making strong connections with students, families and colleagues to create a safe, warm learning environment.

What is Crew?

Time of Day:

  • 8:15-8:40
  • 3:20-3:30


Crew provides each student a one-to-one relationship with an adult at SES, as well as a consistent and ongoing small-scale peer community. Crew leaders (teachers) monitor and support student progress, serve as the student’s advocate in difficult academic and social situations, and act as the primary contact point between parents and the school. Crew meetings are frequently used for teambuilding exercises and for group discussions on topical issues. These exercises and discussions help establish crew identity and a positive school culture.


Within their crews and with the guidance of their crew leaders, students identify needs in the school and in outside communities, and propose and develop projects to address those needs. Students document their involvement in service throughout their school experience, selecting examples of service for inclusion in passage portfolios and presentations
