• Welcome to Essex Elementary School! Our learning community seeks to build a strong sense of belonging and community within a safe school environment, essential for active and empowered learning. We strive to keep students at the center of our decision-making.

    EES Vision

    The vision of our school is aligned with the rich history of this wonderful coastal community known for its former role as a center for shipbuilding. This year, we will continue to focus on academic excellence, social-emotional growth, and the development of critical thinking skills. Our dedicated team of educators is committed to providing high-quality instruction that meets the diverse needs of all students. We will also place a strong emphasis on fostering creativity, innovation, and a lifelong love of learning. 

    The Essex Elementary website provides important and frequently updated information and news about our school. Please spend some time navigating the various links for families, students, and staff members. Open and transparent communication is the foundation for building collaborative learning partnerships, and I hope that this website serves as a starting point for sharing all the wonderful things happening in our school community.

    I welcome you to contact me if you have any questions, comments, compliments for our staff, or other feedback. We look forward to participating in this learning adventure with you and your child.
