EGM is a top class magnet school. It has been consistently ranked the top in the state and national blue ribbon school. The superior quality of education aside , the EGM school principal Ms Hughes,, counselor Ms.Allen and all the staff and faculty are so friendly and make you feel so much at ease and at home. They all know each and every child its unbelievable. Our daughter loves her school and as parents we are so happy that she not only gets fine quality education but also is in a very friendly atmosphere ..a home away from home.
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
