Eagleridge is a wonderful homeschool enrichment program! My children are on their 4th year there and we couldn't be happier! We were concerned when the previous principal retired, as she was amazing, but Principal LaMantia has been awesome. He can always be seen around campus talking to the kids and with parents. The teachers are very supportive and always happy to help. And my kids look forward to going every week! We are so happy to live close to this awesome program as it really helps round out the kids' educational experience!

We're in our second year at Eagleridge, and we are very pleased with what they offer - especially the opportunities for our child to participate in band, field trips, group projects, art, etc. We mostly teach "core" subjects at home, but our experiences with classes in creative writing, math, and reading have all been very positive as well. (We have a child who LOVES to write, but didn't really "blossom" in that area until she took a writing class at Eagleridge. I'm forever grateful to Mrs. B. :>) We've found nearly all of the Eagleridge staff to be friendly, helpful, encouraging, and happy to be working there.

This is the 3rd year my kids attend Eagleridge at different levels, this year they'll be in 4th, 3rd, and 1st grade. They all love their teachers, their classes, the environment is great, the staff and teachers are very friendly and helpful. We absolutely love Eagleridge! My only wish is that they were located a little closer to our house, but that's it.

I actually wrote the first review dated August 29, 2013. I received an email from Great Schools about new reviews being left about Eagleridge so I clicked on it out of curiosity. I saw that the most recent reviewer suspected that my review was written by an employee. I'm sorry that the reviewer didn't enjoy their experience but I don't think it's fair to discount ours. To dispel any suspicion I am leaving this follow-up and will leave my name for credibility purposes. I stand by what I wrote in that recent review. I have two children who attend the school and I am not an employee . My daughter has Mrs. V for first grade and she is amazing. My son has 4 different teachers and we are happy with them as well. -Amber Velasquez

I didn't like this school either. Funny how they had to get a new principal. I have a feeling the last two reviews were written by an employee or something. I didn't feel some of the teachers were approachable enough, (only on meet the teacher night) but everyone has different experiences. This school needs some upgrades.

This program is a wonderful opportunity for homeschoolers! Here, homeschoolers have the opportunity to learn in a typical school environment but without the other issues many tend to find in typical school settings. The program is well run by the top-notch administration and teachers. For those who expressed concerned below that they worry their child will fall behind in grades....that is not the fault of the program. When we as parents make the decision to homeschool, it is our responsibility to educate our children and ensure they meet the educational standards in this state. Please understand, this is an enrichment program designed to support us, not replace what we teach at home. My kids learn a lot here and they are incredibly happy. They also have an entire curriculum room available to us where we can check out materials to use at home. Any concern we've had, has been quickly addressed. Not only does the administration appreciate feedback, they seek it out from families. They are constantly working to make improvements and meet the needs of the families who attend.

Not sure if I'm going to keep my child here. Since its not a regular elementary school, I feel a bit insecure. The bathroom for the little ones is old and I saw ants in the water fountain. They let them play outside in the playground where there's lots of sand so the kids shoes get sand inside really bad. I feel my child will fall behind with the grades compared with the other schools, even though you have to provide a lot of homeschooling plus time & effort on your part.

My kids' school is Eagleridge and they are amazing. They really do care for their students and are very involved with informing the parents.

I am very satisfied with Eagleridge. I don't put a lot of faith in any public school system but for what they offer which is supplementing our homeschooling, it works. My child's teacher has always been supportive, cooperative, and has a energetic personality. The other children are very kind along with their parents. I look forward to enrolling my other child next year as well.

The principal of this school is quick to judge parents. Once she determines a parent's voice is irrelevant, nothing that parent says and none of that parent's concerns will be addressed. Emails and letters are not responded to, and concerns are just conveniently swept under the rug. It's really ashame. I'm waiting for a change in leadership at this school before I'll send my children back to this Enrichment Program. I really wish more schools offered this option for homeschoolers.

The online program is low quality with glitches. Some of the lessons are mind-boggling and psychological, which set one up to fail. The parent resource room lacks materials. Some of the staff are unfriendly ,and lacks communication regarding questions about online issues with program. Not impressed with the program. No star(s).

I have 4 children that have attended Eagleridge. They very much enjoyed their classes and friendships there. The teachers have been creative, kind, and warm toward my children. I appreciate the directors support of the evening performances and other extra activities. We appreciate the physical education, science, theater, music, chess, literature, & Spanish classes especially. This is the perfect enrichment proram for our homeschooling family. Thank you.

Why aren't there more programs like this? This is a great place for homeschoolers to get social interaction and enrichment activities. It is assumed that the students of this school are learning the hard core subjects at home, of course. You can't expect them to be able to teach in 1 or 2 days a week what parents of homeschoolers should be teaching every day.

I really did not like this school. School leadership is very low. This school is mostly populated by people who are conservative and christian, and when ever mentioned, different beliefs are descriminated against by some of the other students in the school, The teachers made no action to stop this exclusion, which made it hard for me to feel comfortable. I had a bad experience there and I'm so glad that I go to a different school now. Some teachers are ignorant of the topics in which they teach. Lastly, no actual 'curriculum' is provided at this school. In my opinion, this school does not help anyone prepare for college.

This is a great way for homeschoolers to get the things they can't get at home without parents having to shell out tons of money for lessons and groups. My son gets to be in the band and theater class and I can sneak classes into his schedule on logic and problem solving, history, math, and grammar without him realizing it. Every semester there are new classes to challange and new programs to try.

Perfect way for home schoolers to gain social skills, meet new friends and add to what I am teaching at home. The classes are fun and the teachers are awesome!

I attended Eagleridge for 4 years. All were wonderful. It provided me with classes and experiences that I woud not have had with homeschooling alone. I also went to 9th grade (as part as the 4 years) there, and the curriculum was great. I felt well-prepared for whatever might come next. I truly enjoyed my time at Eagleridge!

This enrichment program is a great addition to our homeschooling. Our sons have been here for five and four years each. Eagleridge is what your children and family make it. This is a place where your children can have opportunities to work with other students across different age groups to problem solve, put on plays, play in the band, and work on projects. Both of our sons have loved their classes and classmates. Only one of our sons had only a issue with another student which was solved in a respectable manner a few years back.

I am so pleased with Eagleridge. It is a supplement to my homeschooling. My children have found life-long friends that are also homeschooled. They have had extra experiences that I am not able to give them (namely spanish, fun and hands-on science experiements, computers, music, pe, even help with math.) Overall I would reccomend this school to anyone homeschooling.

This is my son's second year at Eagleridge and he absolutely loves it, as do all of his friends. We had previously sent him to one of the better 'regular' public schools, but the experience was so bad that we decided to homeschool him. Eagleridge has been so good that he actually likes school now! The teachers and principal are all first-rate and are able to handle problems very well. On the only occasion that my son did suffer some problems due to another child, the teachers handled the situation well and in a very considerate manner much better than the way things were handled at his previous school! I especially appreciate that the school is designed to complement your homeschooling, not to replace it. Being able to choose which subjects to study and what schedule to use is very helpful. I can't recommend this school highly enough.

This school provided my child with an extremely negative experience. The teacher and principal were unwilling to address issues with a disruptive student leading to misery for my child. I do not recommend this school to any home school parent. I have removed my child from the school in response to my dissatisfaction with the overall environment.

I attended Eagleridge from 4th until 8th grade (I am now a Junior at a public high school) and it was a great experience. I was able to build relationships and share ideas with other homeschoolers. I made many great friends while attending Eagleridge and loved the staff. I felt they truly cared. Eagleridge has many resources for homeschoolers and provides it's students with activities we'd otherwise miss out on as homeschoolers. I would definately recommend this school to anyone.

Eagleridge is a great supplement to homeschooling education. This was my first year and my kids and I loved it! The teachers were wonderful. A large variety of classes are available. A select few are VERY popular and enrollment closes rather quickly on those. Overall, I have been welcomed to not only stay in class, but asked if I wanted to participate (chemistry). The teachers seem very happy to be there, unlike most in public schools. The office workers are helpful and assist you in 'renting' textbooks. I would recommend this school to all homeschooling families. I travel over 30 miles each way for my kids to attend.

Outstanding program for homeschoolers! I've sent my son here since 2nd grade, he is now an 8th grader. Classes are comprehensive and interesting for the students. Most important, they foster a true love for learning in the student! While this is an enrichment program to homeschooling, I felt the classes often surpassed the requirements for each grade level. Teachers are vibrant and interested in the students progress. I strongly recommend Eagleridge to complete your child's homeschool education.

My families years with the Eagleridge enrichment program has been very positive. My children attended two days a week and this filled the socialization that they needed very well. Just rememeber that this school is set up to enrich your childs educational goal, not to fill them. A great blessing to homeschooling families! The staff was wonderful to us and my children enjoyed most of their classes and teachers.

My daughter loved going to this school. It helped to give us a nice mix of homeschooling with the social benefits of a 'regular' school. There's lots of freedom to choose between several different programs and days of the week to be attended.

This School Is the Best, Very Organized and The Teachers Are Down To Earth, Being Strict Enough to Give Orders But Not too much that every student is afraid of them. I Love The Classes, I took Dance II for a year And it was so fun! I learned Alot and Love to Go back ! Their Renaissance Math Is Wonderful, You Take a Test, And It Puts you at Your Own level and The computer Grades you and puts You at your next Assignment, Its great and wonderful because the teacher isn't tied down by grading or passing sheets out, The Kids Are Great And High Class, And I would go their though High School If I Could !
