In 1998, Episcopal School of Knoxville, 950 Episcopal School Way off Gilbert Drive, opened its doors for its first class of students and “has been nurturing students in academic excellence, fine arts, world languages, outdoor education and more ever since,” said Amanda Sharpe, ESK communications and strategic coordinator.
“Look how far we’ve come in 20 years, and a lot is going to happen in the next 20 years,” said Jack Talmadge, ESK head of schools during a Chapel Service Celebration in the school Friday, Oct. 26.
“I know everybody and everybody knows me,” fourth-grader Eleanor Bookstaff said after the chapel service. “It’s just really nice to be with other classmates, and the teachers are very nice, too. They treat you like you’re their child.”
