Great school! We love the teachers and administration. Not only does my son love the school (important!) but he is flourishing, gowning and is an engaged learner. Thanks Epping Elementary!

We have a wonderful elementary school. The kids are involved in many different clubs. We have great teachers! My daughter went from being a shy average student to a high honor roll student with all kinds of awards and a very outgoing, positive attitude with great friends! She has loved all of her teachers so far and they have done so much for her!

Epping Elementary school is doing a wonderful job. The school has grown through the years in a positive direction attracting outstanding teachers who are invested in the children and community. Our principal knows just about every child by name and they take pride in the accomplishments of each student. With a growing community comes new faces and energy to support our child's education!!

We have been so impressed with Epping Elementary! The principal and teachers are dedicated, there is an abundance of parent involvement, and the activities and events are excellent. A wonderful learning environment as demonstrated by, most importantly, happy kids (and test scores are on par with Exeter and Stratham)!

This year, my first graders teachers, along with other staff, have made a wonderful effort to work with my child! The cafe works with all diet needs, even wheat allergies! Instead of just discipline, they work with the kids by trying to understand their thought process... Each teacher makes all the difference for school.

Teachers in this school stay late and work hard. They really go the extra mile for student success and they often don't get the recognition that they deserve.
