Egremont Elementary School will be a true learning community for students and educators. Through a commitment to equity and excellence, coupled with the use of effective instructional practices and programs, we will establish an educational environment that ensures all students achieve high levels of learning and success. Students at Egremont School will be excited about learning and feel that the school is a caring, safe, and fun place to be. Educators will feel supported, challenged, and fulfilled as they collectively work to ensure that every child reaches a high level of success. Families and community members will feel welcomed and embraced as partners in the learning process.
