The athletics at St. John's Prep speak for themselves: they routinely have multi state champions across many athletic endeavors. Different programs may use variations of different school emblems — the Prep Eagle is popular — but the one that is most recognizable is the interlocking 'SJ' in a crisp nautical blue scheme. One look and there's no doubt which school this logo represents.

The largest growing of our local high schools, Essex Tech's athletic programs are continually on the rise, reflecting the influx of students who want to both study and compete in sports there. The Hawks' logo is all business, an emerald green and white bird of prey with navy blue accents on a fierce looking profile. It's clean, crisp and is resolute.
