Welcome to Tappahannock Elementary School
Tappahannock Elementary School is the only public elementary school in Essex County, Virginia. We are located right in the town of Tappahannock with the beautiful Rappahannock River a stone-throw away. We serve grades Pre-Kindergarten to 4th grade.
We believe all children can learn in a nurturing environment. The TES staff believes education is a shared responsibility between students, teachers, parents and the community. We especially push literacy as that affects all subjects. Please use our website to learn more about our school and community. We look forward to seeing you and your children in our school!
Believing that each child has the ability to learn and succeed, the faculty and staff of Tappahannock Elementary School is responsible for meeting the individual instructional needs. Basic skills, high academic standards, and a stimulating disciplined learning environment are required. We must provide a safe, caring, and inviting school climate which fosters healthy relationships among all. Through the cooperative efforts of staff, parents, and community, we are committed to providing a quality education which assists our students in becoming productive, self-sufficient citizens.
