The children of the school are very young and it is important for them to have quick and easy access to their parents. Our central downtown location makes it easy for most parents to come quickly when their children are ill or distressed. EWMS parents often stop in for lunch, drive for field trips, or rearrange their schedules so they can work in the classroom one morning on a regular basis.
One of Delaware’s last surviving large school buildings from the mid-19th century, the Elementary Workshop building is on the National Register of Historic Places.
