This is a wonderful Elementary School.. Our experience has been excellent. The teachers are warm, caring and fantastic. The principal Amy Grabner does her best to know all kids and parents by name. She is approachable and top-notch! I couldn't be more please my children attend this school!

My son Darvius has beed attending Essex Elementary from the start and as far as I am concerned he will until he end. Principal Grabner is awesome! She has total control over the school and the kids still love her... Good job!!!

I have a daughter who started her school career at Essex and will be starting Towson State in Jan. I could not express my satisfaction with teaching staff and curriculum more. I now have a son who will be graduating from Essex this month and am sad to say that my family's experiences with Essex will ...  Read more
