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).
