    "Essex schools (Essex Elem & Founders) pretty much poo-poos a bully as "oh, yeah, he/she's a bully..." and nothing else. Maybe elsewhere is like this but that's just twisted... A normally good kid gets sent to the principal's office or off to a counselor or behavioral specialist for a minor 'infraction' while the bully pretty much gets nothing and never has to write an "I'm sorry" note. I've met people that have brought up the same type of situation(s); one was of a child who was bullied and even injured (stomped on the head at recess) and nothing was done. I've met another family who MOVED to South Burlington to get out of the entire Essex school system... The teacher's are a hit or miss; I've had decent ones and I've had ones that made it sound like the children had the issues and that maybe ADHD meds were needed & when asked to switch teachers in January (not even 1/2 way through the school year) I was told it was 'too late' in the school year - not right at all! Like one reviewer wrote. "The rules and how they handled situations were not great" this is because they make them up as they go and they are not consistent and don't want to be questioned by a parent..."

    "I went to this school a couple years ago... and did'nt really enjoy it. It wasn't the best school. The teachers were ok. The rules and how they handled situations were not great. The school was'nt the best learning environment and it wasn't a very enjoyable school. However, Essex Elementary School was good and Essex Middle School is great."

    "Coming from EES, I am glad to see that Essex schools pull it together eventually. Founders is well organized, efficient and has a fun and dynamic learning environment."
