A fabulous bilingual public lottery school for PreK3-6. Many Texas A&M students from a variety of disciplines participate in teaching the students. The CCISD buses will bring students to and from their closest elementary school. The teachers and support staff are well credentialed. Having the college students is a huge perk. It is a lottery school, so admission into PK3 is tough. After PK3, applications seem to fall out so numbers wise the chances are better, but you have to wait for a student to leave for an opening. As a parent, I've found it difficult to get in and participate with my children's learning in the school. That being said, they do offer times for parent involvement, just not very often. The facility is amazing. The school overlooks the bay and has a state of the art playground. The computer lab is fabulous. The school does not appear to lack funding for any needs. One other downfall is the lack of an after school program. In order to participate in Latchkey, the children take the bus to their home school and are let out unsupervised to find their way to the Latchkey Program. Overall I'd rate the school 9/10.
My little boy has been going to ECDC since Pre- K3, it is a fabulous school! The teachers are wonderful- he has learned so much. The school is small, there is only one classroom per grade, which I think is terriffic. I am ever so thankful that he is getting such a great start in his academic career!
This is a lab school that is bilingual. The classrooms have observation decks and teachers can be observed at any time. I feel that the teachers work very hard here and the students learn just as much as they would at any other school. There are opportunities for the students to get involved in extra curricular activities.
