School Reviews

  • Recommended April 02, 2013 - Eagle Cove School formerly Gibson Island Country School is extrodinary. From thier small classroom sizes, hands on learning, and focus on outdoor nature exploration you will be astounded at how ECS excesses expectations. The teachers and other parents immediately made our family feel part of a close nit community. I can''t imagine my two children going to school anywhere else. - Posted by Parent
