Essex Fells Foundation
for Educational Excellence
The Essex Fells Foundation for Educational Excellence welcomes you and invites you to read further to discover how the Foundation works with the Essex Fells School on behalf of the community's children.
The Foundation was established to address threats to the high quality of education at the Essex Fells School from dwindling state aid and from state-imposed limits on the annual school budget. In order to continue the legacy of educational excellence at the Essex Fells School, programs and resources beyond state mandates were deemed essential.
A true cross-section of community members established the Foundation in 1994 to provide support to public school education. The founding members consisted not only of parents of school-age children, but also of town leaders, Essex Fells School alumni, senior citizens and many other residents who wished to preserve the excellence of our school.
Since the Foundation's inception in 1994, it has made grants in excess of $1,000,000 to the Essex Fells School. From technology to cultural arts to teacher development, the Foundation has played an integral role in preserving the quality of an Essex Fells School education.
We thank you for taking the time to learn more about The Essex Fells Foundation. We hope that by understanding the Foundation's mission, you will join us in the effort to keep the standards of the Essex Fells School the highest that they can possibly be. The continued success of our town's most valuable asset depends on you and our private commitment to public education.
