This school had the highest testing scores of the schools in Anchorage the year that my children went to it. My neighbor bought her house based on the school it was zoned for.
I have had my children in this school for the last 5 years. This is a wonderful school and my children have thrived. My only complaint is the principle and the librarian. Neither of them should be around small children. The librarian is just plain mean! The principle is so unpredictable. One day she is very nice and the next she is talking down to everyone. She is not approachable and makes me feel uncomfortable.
I have had 3 children in this school and am so pleased as a parent. The teaching staff is exceptional for their neighborhood program and their optional program. Our family has considered leaving state, but this school is one of the staple reasons for us staying put. Education is so important and this school embraces it with both hands, they recognize different learning styles and embrace community and life skills.
I'm the mom of an ESL student, and rate this as an absolutely outstanding school. The work is appropriate, the teachers I met are both talented and outstanding, the principal is wonderful, and the staff goes the extra mile for the students.
This is my son's 2nd year at ERE he loves it and I love the staff. They honestly care about the kids and their education.
I love ERE the staff works well together, they have low teacher turnover. The principal is young and has great ideas on how to help the children who attend ERE. At ERE you have a choice between the traditional school program or the optional program. The optional program is an alternative school. It is nice to be able to have all my children there and have a choice of programs.
