EMMITSBURG ELEMENTARY is situated just south of the Mason-Dixon Line in historic Frederick County. The entire community is supportive and proud of the school's work in educating Emmitsburg students.
By maintaining high expectations and involving everybody (teachers, staff, parents and community members) in our program, we improve students' success in meeting county and state achievement standards.
Emmitsburg Elementary has a reputation for bringing together the best combination of services to meet the instructional needs of each student. In addition to our classroom and music, art and physical education teachers, we utilize the skills of our reading specialist, school counselor, special educators and interventionalists and teacher specialists to provide individual and small-group instruction. We are a Professional Development School for training pre-service teachers with neighboring Mount St. Mary's University.
Parent Teacher Association (PTA) activities are well attended at EES. Events such as Moms and Muffins, Dads and Donuts, and Grandparents and Granola, as well as Family Fun Nights and "Meet the Teacher" support our emphasis on family involvement. The staff members of EES are actively involved in providing STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) events for our families.
The entire Emmitsburg community takes pride in our endeavors to provide an excellent learning environment for each student.
