I have had experience with EKO and found it to be an outstanding school. It is well discipline and the teachers care about the students. The Director, Mary Martin, is the first director I have ever come in contact with that genuinely cares about every student. I do not think my son could not have made it if it wasn't for the EKO staff. I give the school a 10. (Perfect Score)

EKO Multi-Purpose Center was the perfect NPS school for my son. He was on the road to Juvenile hall and EKO was his last stop. Mary Martin, director, and the staff supported me in all the decision I made. My son went in hating the thought of a Non-public school and today he is attending college. He gives a lot of thanks to the staff at EKO and his 12th grade teacher Ms. T.Martin. He stated it was nice to have staff and a teacher that cared about his education and his well-being. I personally thank all staff and teachers for putting up with him everyday.

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.

Oops! We currently do not have any teacher information for this school. We rely on the state Department of Education, the National Center for Education Statistics (NCES), and in some cases school administrators such as registrars and principals for this data.

What makes a great teacher? Study after study shows the single most important factor determining the quality of the education a child receives is the quality of his teacher. Here are some characteristics to look for »
