School Reviews

Both of my children have been enrolled at this school for almost 1 year, as of this writing. I am very pleased with most of the school''s aspects. My oldest child''s experience has been a bit more positive than my younger child''s, but at the end of the day, it''s a good school for both of them. It is solid academically. The teachers/faculty are smart and helpful. This school is not as high brow as some of my town''s private schools are (and I say that as a compliment to ETCA).
