We are embarking on our fifth year in the South Mountain Community. We are a Kindergarten - Seventh grade campus. We focus on academic greatness with a postive character development program. Our curriculum is individualized to meet the needs of our diverse learners. We pride ourselves as a great place to learn! We have an amazing staff of individuals that come together for our students each and every day. We are looking forward to a great school year!

This is a safe place to share your honest opinions of a school, whether good or bad.
Last year was just right, this year hasn't been stable at all.. partly because the teacher is incompetent and all the homework packets get done if and only if a parent goes in a volunteers to do the teachers job and print and staple all homework, and morning work.
Administration is horrible and has been for the past few years. Administration appears to show favoritism to their "friends." Administration does what they want with no regard to their students and families. Administration does not make decisions that are in the best interest of their students, but rather for themselves. The principals use their authority to their advantage and no one can do anything about it.
I say this with years of experience with EAGLE, Administration does not adhere to their mission and does not perform to their full potential due to inconsistencies in their teaching methods and staff turnover.
The majority of teachers are great but the Administration makes it very difficult to want to continue to send my child there.
As is the case with many charters, many teachers are not certified. Seventh grade math first quarter 2015 was a disaster, and nearly all students failed due to an incompetent and last minute teacher that was hired. Teacher and administrator turnover is extremely high.
We are absolutely grateful we found Eagle College Prep, our K just finished her her first year there as a 1st grader. The whole environment of school from the front office staff all the way to maintenance is awesome!! The teachers are very supportive and care about each individual students and are always communicating with parents and also the PTA does an awesome job with fund raising for the school. I would highly recommend this school and the lottery process/waiting list for this school is well worth it once you get in! I can't wait for Eagle HS!
My child loves her third grade teacher at Eagle! Her teacher has helped her come out of her shell this year! She feels welcomed in her classroom, and is always excited to go to school. I'm very impressed with her academic progress, as well. Our family loves EAGLE!
