I love the school, they take the time and make sure your child gets the help they need. They may be stricter then most schools but I think it teaches our children discipline and structure,gets them prepared for the real world. My child is 6 and is reading better than most children her age,they may not have recess but they do have some fun. School is for educational purposes not fun. So If you want you're child to play this is not the school for her. If you want education to be the focus send your scholars here.

Excellence Girls is a great academic school, however they they must realize that this is not a Military Academy. I am all for discipline to run a solid school, but socialization among themselves are also important for growth . I am not saying it should be a big part of the day, but a little does no harm.

EGCS is a great school for academics. But they really need a reality check on the fact that these scholars are only 5 - 8 year old little girls. This is not a BOOT CAMP TRAINING FACILITY. School is about LEARNING and EXPLORING and having FUN!!!!! For all future parents thinking about enrolling your young scholar into this school. Do yourself a favor, take the time out of your busy schedules and observe what is going on in the classroom. I am a very on hand parent. I take my child's education very seriously. And this is not the only school in Brooklyn,NY that can teach our children that college is the answer. Where's the fun when you have homework (LIFE'S WORK) 7 DAYS A WEEK, NO RECESS, NO SOCIALIZING. When can she be a little girl and PLAY. #DONTSTEALPOSSIBLE.

I have 2 daughters attending Excellence Girls,and each and everyday they look forward to going to school. From the office managers,teachers to the Principal are outstanding. It is a blessing to have this school in our community.They teach our girls how to be young ladies that respect themselves and others. The teachers work their butt off,and the students are expected to do the same. I love it

My daughter came from public school before starting excellence girls. Since she started I am highly impressed with her learning and behavior the school teaches them class, poise and excellence. She loves to read and write and excited about going everyday. This school is also a college prep so every class represent a university. Jasmine A is going to attend all the way through

This is the best school that my daughter could have attended. Like most of the other girls, my daughter tested and was accepted into the citywide Gifted and Talented Program for the Bd. of Ed. However, after some research of the achievements reached at Excellence Boys Charter School, I knew that Excellence would best serve my daughter's academic needs. This is my daughter's second year at excellence, currently a second grader ..... and i have yet to second guess my choice for academic success. From the principal to the academic curriculum Excellence meets and exceeds my expectations each and every time. Thank you so much to Uncommon Schools Network for affording us the opportunity to be a part of the high achieving schools they have brought into our communities to allow our children to be successful in life.

WOW!!!! I'm proud to admit that my wife and I strongly feel that we've made the right choice for our scholar to attend Girls School of Excellence over the other options she had including the Gifted & Talented program. We looked at the achievements that where accomplished by the Boys School of Excellence in a short period of time. And felt that the girls were destined for a higher education also. Plus by placing her in a school in our own community enables her to form a strong identity of where she come from,who you are, and where she's going. It's beautiful to see all the young scholars in uniform, on the same page, and treating each other with respect. I'm happy that my daughter will go down in history along with the rest by completing the first school year for the Girls School of Excellence.

My daughter has just completed kindergarden at Excellence. We attended the Stepping UP ceremony today which was very inspirational. The children seemed very proud of their accomplishments. KUDOS to Excellence Girls.

I am a parent of a soon to be first grader at Excellence girls. My daughter attended PK at private school, but her kindergarten experience at this school was superb. She enjoyed going to school and took her academic work seriously beyond her age. The teachers at this school are so involved in the scholars progress that monthly update and discussions are held to discuss their progress. Like the other parent, I am also refusing a spot in the G&T program to keep my child at this school. Her expanded vocabulary and approach to her school work is due to the combined efforts of the staff and administrators at Excellence Girls. Many thanks to a great team of educators.
