What they have done for us is priceless After 2 years at Eton our daughter was able to go back to her former school and far exceeded our expectations. Eton provided her with the skills, strategies and the confidence she needed to excel in a "regular classroom". They taught her how to turn her LD's into strengths. The Upper school teachers are very dedicated. They provided intense new challenges, remediation and a very individualized education. She worked very hard here and they encouraged her ever step. This is an incredible place. I am shocked at the bad reviews -not our experience at all

Very poor school, no attendance records kept, kids show up when they feel like showing up. Waste of money.

Having two children who have very successfully transitioned from Eton to Cranbrook Kingswood Schools, I can only say THANK YOU for educating my children in such a way to create confident, respectful, caring and successful young adults! You have changed their lives and we will always be grateful to have been able to give our children this experience.

We had a terrible experience here. We wasted a lot of time and money, and worse, our child was not treated with respect. Please use caution. This school has a very narrow set of children it is meant for.

This is my childs 5th year at Eton. We have found this school to be perfect for her. She has learning disabilities, which this school specializes in. They teach her in ways that she understnads and she is very successful. There is no bullying or behavior problems, the teachers are great and well trained. They also teach social skills. I lhear so many kids who had terrible experiences at other schools,say they just love it here. It is expensive but worth it, way better than public school.

My son failed both the 8th and 9th grade before we enrolled him in Eton Academy. He is a senior this year, is getting good grades and scored well on the ACT. Eton gave him (and us) our life back.

Very Poor Quality of Academic Programs. Eton promises individualized Education Plans and instruction but does not provide these services. Students who leave Eton are academically unprepared to enter another public/private school. For the past two years that our son attended Eton he academically regressed. Eton's own testing revealed our son was a full-year behind his grade level. Joellyn M. Jolly

My son entered the school two years ago after having a slew of problems in traditional public schools. Lost homework, huge problems making friends, seriously low self-esteem and so on. Two years later, he has friends, he is actually learning in an environment that supports his learning difference, and a staf that 'gets it.' It isn't cheap, but it is definately worth every penny.

This is my 8 year old son's first year at Eton and I couldn't be more thrilled with the progress he has made both academically and emotionally. The 'blended' classes ensure that my son receives instruction at 'his' level. The small class setting is ideal for one-on-one instruction when needed. My son's classmates are at the same academic level as he so no one feels inadequate for the instruction they receive. The students are not propelled into a higher level of learining until they've mastered their current level. The students are given every chance to 'succeed' and succeed they do in this nurturing environment.

This school specializes in learning disabilities. Class size is not higher than 8 students per teacher. It goes from 1st-12th grade. Tuition is expensive but well worth it. Children are taught to be independent, extensive study techniques, and to be advocates for themselves. Excellent teachers, principal and assistant principals. I would highly recommend this school to any parent who has a child with learning disabilities.
