As a parent of both an alumni and a current student , I can not say enough wonderful accolades about Eagle Hill School in Greenwich. In my opinion, this program sets the gold standard for students with language based learning challenges. Sending your child to EHS is the best gift you can possibly give!

My son, who has ADHD, spent 3 years (grades 7-9) at EHS and it changed his life. He struggled in regular ed for years and the demands of middle school overwhelmed him. EHS helped him learn strategies to deal with his significant executive functioning deficits and worked with him where he was academically to "fill in the gaps" and prepare him to go back into the mainstream. He is now a Junior in high school where he is achieving beyond our expectations academically (3.0+ GPA), is a student leader, and is in the beginning of his college search process. None of this would have happened without the excellent skill-based program Eagle Hill provided.
