Welcome to Essex Street Academy

January PA meeting on 1/17/2019. Principal Wallace shared the great initiatives at ESA and also did our own goal plans with our Passport to the Future.

The mission of the ESA Parents Association is to engage, inform, and support families and students via workshops, enrichment activities, and community building to ensure all families are empowered.

As ESA parents and teachers we are all members of the ESA Parent Association.  The ESA Parent Association is committed to promoting and supporting the ESA educational experience by fostering a spirit of community through open communication and cooperation between parents, students and faculty.  We are a 501(c)(3) and help insure that all ESA parents are engaged, well-informed partners with the ESA administration and faculty through a variety of programming. This would not be possible without your continued support and contributions.  We also need volunteers to help build a strong ESA community.
