EES is a great school. My son has had a wonderful time there and I love the parents and the teachers.

I worked as a teacher at Edmunds Elementary for 8 years (1986-1994). I loved the kids and the community. I worked with some great colleagues and was fortunate to also have 2 excellent principals during my time there. My 5th grade teaching colleague and I were allowed to be innovative and creative with our kids. Edmunds Elementary student performed extremely well in programs like Destination Imagination. I have worked overseas for the past 18 years since leaving Edmunds as an international school educator, but I have so many great memories of working in the Edmunds community. Thank you!

My daughter has been at the school since Kindergarten and is currently in 5th grade. The school has offered her academic challenge in a supportive, nurturing environment. Parent support is strong, social environment safe and supervised. Her skill level in reading/mathematics is currently on par with those attending local private schools.

Edmunds is really good. When we moved to Burlington last year, our kindergarten-age daughter had some real transition issues, and she brought those to school with her. Her teacher, principal, counselors and so many others mobilized to address her issues and, after just a few hiccups in communication, really involved us as well. As a result, our daughter had a much better second semester and, now, first grade.

School has a good level of volunteer parent involvement. Academics are marginal at best. No foriegn language development, formal science or advanced learning opportunities outside of a city-run after school program. Principal seems to be running out clock to retirement.

Edmunds Elementary is a fantastic school. Our son completed first and second grade so far. We have been very impressed with the teachers, administration, and staff. We are pleased with our son's academic progress. Don't miss the school concert and the school play in the Spring. Both of these are top notch. Edmunds also does a great job with extra-curricular activities. They have brought in a lot of speakers for the kids. They are located close to the Flynn Theater, City of Burlington offices, and the University of Vermont and they use these resources to their advantage. The school is honestly the best public or private elementary in the state in our opinion.
