Tradition of Excellence

When you walk through the main entry of the Esko High School, the slogan "IT"S A GREAT DAY TO BE AN ESKOMO" is painted for all to see.   For more than 90 years, the school has been the window into the community for the outside world.  From its consistently high academic ratings to its outstanding athletes, and from its band and choir to its many successful alumni, the school has been the first thing - often the only thing - people elsewhere know about Esko.
