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!
I have had children at Essrig for the past 7 years. Nothing but positive experiences. Great teachers and staff. Lots of opportunities to get involved. I would recommend Essrig to anyone!!!
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!!!
I have gone to this school since kindergarden and i loved it this school deserves way more rating like 10 out of 10 the staff was lovely and the teachers where the best i cant wait to go to ben hill next year!
Essrig is an excellent school, I have no words to express how satisfied Im with my daughters education, Im highly recommends this school for everyone who has the opportunity to have his kids there. Amazing in activities, good communication and very clean, also friendly personal....
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 children have gone to this school for the past three years. I am very happy and impressed with the education they are receiving as well as the staff. I always feel very informed with what is going on with my children.
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 use to go to Essrig and Im now in 7th grade but for the 7 years that I was in Essrig, I have to say Im glad that I went. I love the teachers, they are th best that they could get. I was never left out of learning and now, Im a straight A student. I LOVE ESSRIG! And I hope to go visit it soon. I miss all of my teachers and they still remeber me! Even my kindergarden tearcher! Isnt that great? take it from a student who use to go to Essrig, they know kids and they know how to make learning fun.
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.
Essrig has provided my son with a lot of support. They care about their students.
