Essex Elementary, in conjunction with Baltimore County Public Schools, welcomes the opportunity to provide all students with experiences for personal fulfillment through achievement of academic excellence.
We will improve the achievement levels of our students by:
1. Incorporating a variety of instructional strategies which promote critical and creative thinking skills and create lifelong learners
2. Increasing both student and parent responsibility, participation, and involvement in the education process
3. Providing on-going, meaningful staff development for our teachers and workshops for our parents
By pursuing this mission we will help students develop academic excellence, a sense of self-worth, behaviors which reflect our school values, personal goals to become lifelong learners, problem solving skills, intrinsic motivation toward learning, a sense of responsibility, and an awareness, acceptance, and appreciation of cultural and ethnic differences.
