This school is terrible. As soon as they think your child needs help they tell you it is probably best to move on to another school. Their philosophy is that if you can't keep up they don't have time to slow down and help your child. All the parents are snobs. Not a good school!
I have been extremely impressed with Eden Gardens! The school is so personal--from administration on down they make my child feel like a SPECIAL individual--not just a number! Parental involvement is unbelievable; parents are encouraged to take part and be a part of every day.
Eden Gardens is a wonderful example of what our schools should emulate. It starts from the top with Mrs. Hughes and Mrs. Allen giving guidance - they know about every child that attends the school and reward the children for achievements at regularly scheduled assemblies. We have had our child there for four years and without exception, all of the teachers have been caring, responsive, and ensure your child will learn. Remarkably, you get this in a public school setting. Also, there is exceptional involvement of the parents with the school and the support they give - a key to any schools success. You will be very happy that your child attends Eden Gardens Magnet.
Consistently one of the top TWO schools in the entire state of Louisiana, Eden Gardens provides an excellent academic background for some of Caddo Parish's most gifted and talented students. The teachers and staff continually strive to bring the newest technology and skills into the classroom while providing a loving atmosphere that feels like a family. It is a true privilege to be a part of Eden Gardens Magnet!
Eden Gardens is a 5 Star school and the #2 school in Caddo Parish. We have excellent teachers and administrators who challenge our children to achieve their best. Our parents are always at school volunteering in the office, helping teachers, and supporting the PTA's annual events.
Wonderful staff - everyone is professional, loving and challenges each child to reach for academic excellence. Parents back this up with lots of support at home. I would not trade for any private school. To those who say public schools are not as good as private schools - you have not looked at Eden Gardens - look at the awards that this school has achieved, national rankings and test scores of the students and compare to any private school
Eden Gardens is by far the best school my kids have been to. Nurtures our children in such a wonderful educational environment, such caring teachers and staff. My kids are very lucky to be a part of such a caring and academically challenging school.
Wonderful school -great academics, excellent teachers (special mention to my kids teachers -Mrs. Snow, Mrs. Jackson, Mrs. Hitchcock) and support staff, fantastic principal & counselor, nurturing evnironment. My kids loved going to school everyday, unfortunately we had to move. Parent involvement and PTA is very good. Private school education at public school price. Loved the uniform policy. The Sriram Family.
Words cannot express how wonderful Eden Gardens School has been for my 2 children. From the Principal, Counselor, to the Teachers. They treat each child as if they are the only student in the school. They take the time to get to know the children and work together as a faculty to make sure that each child receives what he or she needs. The parent involvement is unbelievable. This school is so special and we have had to move from the area and there is not a day that goes by that my children do not mention Eden Gardens and ask to return. This public education has the feel of a sweet family and anyone who is lucky enough to attend is very blessed and without a doubt will not get a better education anywhere else!!!
We have had the joy of attending EGM for four years now and it only gets better. My daughter has loved all her teachers. The staff are caring and always available to answer any questions. (No matter how many times they have probably had to answer them.) There are too many good things to say about EGM. It must be experienced to understand.
THis is te best school I have ever sent my children to. WE started at University, then changed to Eden Gardens and fell in love with all the people that worked there and the very nurturing, loving, challenging environment they were in. I can't say enough good things about this school and the principal - and teachers. I miss it terribly and would go back there in an instant. Wish I could have brought it with us to LIttle Rock.
Outstanding education and teachers. The parent's involvement makes this school exceptional and fun to be a part of. I have 3 children attending EGFM. They are taught with so much caring and discipline and challenges to make their education a positive experience. You will not be dissapointed in the dedicated staff that will address any issue or concern you may have. This school has won awards of excellence for a reason, and if your child is lucky to attend,you will know why.
I have been a PTA mom at Eden Gardens for 5 years. This is a nurturing Environment,with a real desire of the parents and faculty to make sure each child reaches their potential. we are the #2 elementary school in the state of Louisiana. We have state of the art technology. With 4th grade and all 5th graders taking home laptop computers daily. 4th grade starts with power point & internet research. You can t go wrong choosing Eden Gardens.
This is an awesome school. I have had three children go through this school and have had a positive experience with them all. The principal is concerned with each individual child and his/her learning experience. It is a school where parents are welcomed and included in all activities.
