The students have the benefit of small classrooms, individualized instruction and a caring staff. Antoine Russell has assembled the finest group of administrators and teachers to guide the students into the future. They have choices such as web design, culinary, hotel and travel, as well as standard curriculum. For the students, attending EPA is like being among friends and family. Of course, there are problems, just like any other school, but they are handled with compassion unlike anything I've ever seen before. The students and families are known to the staff, which makes all the difference in the world. Some students thrive in this type of environment, as an alternative to the overcrowded, impersonal high schools, I think it's great for my child.
