School Notes

  • The two best things about Eagle Creek are our excellent teachers and our small class sizes. All of our teachers are mature, professional educators who have been in their own classrooms for at least ten years. They all have bachelor's degrees, and most have master's degrees. Best of all, they love kids. The other great thing about Eagle Creek is our small groups. Each preschool and Young Fives group is only 8, 10 or 12 children in the room. Children and parents appreciate this since it makes for a very peaceful day. This also allows the teachers to really get to know each child and work with him at his exact ability level. Many of our preschool and Young Fives children are beginning readers when they move on. You will love our great teachers and the individual attention we pay to each child.

Eagle Creek is the best. I actually went there when I was in middle school, now my daughter attends drop-in babysitting. She loves it. They do activities with her all day. They send me updates through an app called See Saw which I love and brings me such peace of mind. She comes home so tired and whenever we pick her up, she is so sad and doesn't want to leave. They take such great care of her and I love that she loves it so much. The classrooms are huge, everyone is so nice when you walk in, and they spend so much time doing hands-on activities with your children. 10000/10!

Our children had a wonderful experience at Eagle Creek Academy! The small class size and caring teachers provided a great environment for our children to gain a love of learning, feel safe and gain confidence, and grow socially and academically. The Art and STEM activities were exceptional.

Children learn quickly. Love the involvement of parents/grandparents. The principal is actively involved in student activities. Doors are kept locked for students' safety. Great student-to-teacher ratio. Building off the main road, for students' safety. Parents' newsletters and calendars keep parents involved.

What a great choice we made and only if I would have known sooner. We moved over to Eagle Creek from public schools when the pandemic hit. I wish I would have known about the school sooner, knowing what I know now about the school. My kids have grown so much from what they were doing before and the best thing they are going it at their own level. The staff and teachers are amazing, all so nice and helpful. I don't have to wait days to hear back from the teachers or know where my kid stands I can reach out at any time and get a quick response. If you are looking for a great school I would strongly recommend Eagle Creek Academy. My daughter loves it so much she wants to stay thru 12th grade (they only go up to 5th)

My child has been at Eagle Creek for 2 years now. I can't express how wonderful the staff are here. The individual attention that my daughter gets is outstanding. Her academic growth is unbelievable. She has made so many wonderful friends and absolutely loves the stem classes. The hands on experiences really bring to life the learning and she comes home just full of excitement ready to share what she has learned.

No school is perfect but the key, I believe, is to find the perfect fit for your child. My children have attended ECA for many years, one has even moved on now to be very well prepared for high school - she feels high school is easy compared to her classes at ECA. I love the small group sizes and the fantastic teachers. I have seen my children blossom and grow in a safe, nurturing environment. I would recommend visiting this school to see if it is the right fit for your family.
