Essex Intermediate School

Dear Parent(s)/Guardian(s),

Welcome to an exciting and rewarding 2019-2020 academic school year at Essex Intermediate School! It’s an honor to congratulate our scholars, teachers and parents for last year’s hard work, which resulted in an 80% SOL pass rate for the first time in both Math and English/Language Arts in over 5 years! We must strive to continue with this momentum!

This year, our school will normalize the idea that “ Excellence is the Expectation ” as we build and maintain healthy relationships as an EISBulldogFamily! At EIS, we strongly desire for our scholars to understand their purpose as they embark upon and achieve their individual academic goals. As such, we will be intentional about incorporating rituals and routines that promote respect and rapport within our school community. We will also reinforce positive thoughts and actions by affirming our B.A.R.K.S. Values ! Each Essex Intermediate School scholar will be expected to aim to epitomize B.A.R.K.S. Values.

B e the change.
A ccept diversity.
R eflect.
K indly use words & actions.
S eek scholarship, service & safety.
