Our son was in their EELP program since he turned 3 due to a speech delay. He just started kindergarten and is on level thanks to the arduous labor of his teacher and amazing teacher assistant, and our daughter is in the EELP program as a typical peer (different teachers, but equally caring and fun). The teachers genuinely care for the development and educational growth of their children. As a district employee, if I may add, one of our best schools!!! Parents, you won't be disappointed. We plan on staying in this area because of Essrig.

Essrig is THE best school. They go above and beyond and it really has a different feel. My son started at the school unable to talk and no one could understand him. He is a completely different child now and I know it's thanks to this school. You won't be disappointed! !

We have been at Essrig for 5 years and feel blessed to be a part of such a GREAT school family. You can tell how much the teachers care about the kids and the quality of how they teach. The administration is fantastic. Even with a change in principals Essrig continues to impress. The PTA is very involved/active and very welcoming and friendly to all.

This is a fantastic school. My kids have been here for three years now. I love the teachers and staff. I am a working parent but have been very involved with the PTA and my kids teachers. Newbie principal; but he's doing a great job so far.

Essrig is a supportive, close knit learning environment fostered by the best teaching and support staff. My daughter loves going to school here each day and has grown and learned so much. We have a wonderful principal, office staff and group of volunteers, as well. I am thrilled that she is attending Essrig for elementary school!

Essrig is a very caring school with a great group of teachers and staff. The location of the school makes it easy for parental involvement since it is close to home.

We came last year from Carrollwood Elementary school because our zoning changed and it came as a blessing. The difference from this two school is from night to day. This is truly a red carpet school and the difference between this schools is in the treatment by the school office staff, administration and principal, they are extremely helpful, and acknowledge you as soon as you enter their office. The teachers are amazing! There is no bullying in this school since the staff show a lot of concern about this. Go Panthers!!!

The school teachers are great. The principal seems very nice. But the staffs doing those registration there was one very mean. You would easy get your feeling hurt if you don't have a strong stomach. I never meet anyones like that. I can not believe that I paid taxes and live in the school distric but afraid to let my child to go there. Because if the front desk like that when emergency needed somethings for my child and the front desk not let thing goes faster and organize. So then my child life would be in danger. That lady seems like try to controlling everything around without a warming heart and caring. I hope everything go well for everyones at this school. I rather pay for my child in private school where I have respect. God bless everyone

My child has been at Essrig for Kindergarten and first grade. Her teachers have been excellent. The administration has been supportive. The principal, Mrs. Campbell, is approachable and gets the job done well and quickly. I would definitely highly recommend this school!

My son has spent two wonderful years at Essrig. His teachers have been very knowledgeable and supportive. It is very apparent that the administration cares about the students and their parents. We look forward to sending our younger son there next year!

I love Essrig. The teachers are wonderful. And the Mrs. Gillett has been amasingly helpful. Mrs McKay and the rest of the secretaries are always wonderful. I have noticed a great improvement in my sons reading thanks to the one on one and tutoring he has recieved. I was planning on changing my kids to Northwest But after a month, I realized this was a much better school for them. I appreciate all the hard work and attention everyone has given to my little ones. Thank you all. Sincerely, Patsy Leroe

Great School. Very happy my daughter attends this Shool. Had switched Daughter to Citrus Park but switched back to Essrig after only a week. Essrig is by far a better, cleaner and more organized school. Great Teachers, Staff and exceptional school.

I really am very pleased with this school. The level of parent involvement and teacher communication is at the top level. The academic program inspires the children to do the best that they can do. I think the mandatory uniforms may get the children in the right mind set as well. I have 3 children going there and they always look forward to the Whisker Wahoo on Fridays. So my final grade for this school would be an A+.

My child is in the upper levels of Essrig and is having a very good school year. He is a little advanced for most of the kids in his class and actually is having more extracurricular academic opportunities to shine as a student than he did in his previous school (less competition academically). This has given him more confidence as a student. He does tend to get bored easily and the teacher has been very good at keeping him busy during classtime.

My daughter transferred to Essrig mid-year. Overall, it was a decent school. However, I was rather upset by the lack of art classes and no playground or recess time. Her teachers were good and the team-teaching approach in the fifth grade was a good preparation for middle school. Overall, the school is OK, but I didn't feel that it was exceptional in any way.

Essrig is a great school. the only issue is there are too many students for each class. the school is over copacity. Other then that the teachers and staff are great about keeping you up to date on things.
