I love this school. My child has special needs and has blossomed in this school. The teacher and staff are very understanding of our numerous doctor appointments. They are flexible and extremely helpful. The best part is that daily they actively integrate my child with other children her age who are typically developing. She has made new friends and has taught the other children to accept those who are different. Bravo to ELC!!

This is a great school the people are very nice and work with you and your child to make it easier in them. The teachers are pretty down to earth teachers and they will let you know where they are falling short as well as the kids... I hope that they keep up the great work in keeping our kids safe and smart.

I have had 4 children go thru this school with 2 different principals. The first 2 children had the same teacher and it was a great environment because the principal did her job and didn't allow children to be disruptive in class. If they caused problems, they were removed until they could behave. Thus, preventing others from learning. But with the new principal, the classess are mass chaos. Children are allowed to continually be disruptive. The smart quiet children get no attention and can't get help when they need it because the teachers are so busy with all the bad behaviors. I pulled my fourth child out before Christmas because I refuse to tolerate my child not getting any help on papers when she needs it. The principal made no attempt to help the situation even after several attempts by my husband and myself.
