I love Essex Junction. It's a small town, where you're constantly seeing familiar faces. That said, we have enough people in our community to have a very strong school system. Essex High School is currently the second largest high school in Vermont (second to Champlain Valley Union) and offers such great opportunities. For students interested in the arts, the Academy of Visual and Performing Arts offers internship and capstone opportunities. The same type of thing is offered to scientists and mathematicians in the STEM Academy. EHS also has great school spirit, wonderful teachers, and lots of AP classes for students to challenge themselves.

It's a small town with a lot of down to earth people. It's very easy to be connected with the community and everyone in Essex is willing to help their neighbors and friends. I would recommend settling down here not only because of the academic opportunities, but because it's a great place to raise a family. There isn't a whole lot of options for going out at night, but its close proximity to Burlington opens up more opportunities.
This is not only a safe area but it also has a great school system. Their special educators are the best in the area and offer amazing assistance to parents and guardians. Thant being said that also means higher taxes and higher cost of living, which is already high. We also have found that finding a place to live in this area is hard and very expensive. Most of our income goes to just trying to pay the basic life necessities.
