About Emmitsburg Elementary School

Emmitsburg Elementary School


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.

Our School Vision is Every Eagle Soars!

Our School Mission is Every Eagle Soars by becoming respected problem solvers, users of technology, and effective communicators for life-long learning.

By maintaining high expectations and involving everybody (teachers, staff, parents and community members) in our program, we improve students’ success in meeting county achievement standards.

Using differentiated instruction, the staff at Emmitsburg attempts to meet the needs of each child.

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, guidance counselor, special education staff, learning language support teachers, and intervention staff to provide individual and small-group instruction. Interns and tutors from Mount Saint Mary’s University provide additional educational opportunities for our students.

Parent Teacher Association (PTA) activities have become increasingly popular 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 entire Emmitsburg community takes pride in our endeavors to provide an excellent learning environment for each student.
