This is a fantastic school. The faculty and staff treat you as if you are a part of the family and provide excellent care for the children. There is after-school care for those parents whom work past school hours. My son has been at this school since K4 and is in the 2nd grade now and he loves it. The curriculum is also great; there is a wide range of knowledge that is provided to each individual child. If you do not believe me, go tour the school for yourself; you will not be disappointed.

There is no better school. Anyone wanting their child or teen to have all types of educational experiences and personal growth opportunities should send them to Episcopal

My 2 and 4 year old children attend and this is a wonderful school. The teachers are absolutely committed to educating the children, There are only three children in the 2 year old's class! You definitely get what you pay for at EDS

Our 7-year old daughter has attended this school since kindergarden and has greatly enjoyed the curriculum. The children are challenged and properly motivated to do their best by a qualified staff. The staff members genuinely care about the students and are committed to their success. The school provides ample exposure to arts programs as well as traditional acedemic course work. Children that are capable of working at advanced levels are appropriately challenged and encouraged to do so. The student to teacher ratio is very low, possibly due to tutition costs, but these low ratios allow tremendous one on one time for the students and teachers for discussion. I was actually a student of this school when I was young and would not think of sending my children anywhere else. A wonderful school!

About these ratings

The Community Rating is the school’s average rating from its community members (e.g., parents, students, and school staff). The highest possible rating is five stars; the lowest is one star.

We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Unlike public schools, private schools are not always required to report data about their schools or not required to take the same tests as public schools. Many private schools take different standardized tests; however, that information is often made available only to families of enrolled students. We strive to acquire additional private school data whenever available.
