Two years ago, we moved our daughters, from a "top rated" LISD elementary school, to EPS – we have never looked back!
EPS offers a robust, engaged, supportive and challenge-dedicated learning environment, where like-minded families join with school administrators, highly skilled/credentialed instructors and others in the community, to foster and deliver an extraordinary educational experience (as you would expect when paying +$20k/yr. in tuition and fees, etc.) Our daughters are thriving as never before, scoring many grades higher than their actual grade level, as determined by the highly regarded Iowa Achievement Test (unlike the Texas STAAR testing curriculum/methodology, Iowa is administered without dedicated preparatory activities, just as it was 25 yrs ago when this parent took them)
As for the 3 negative comments from that single poster, I would submit that “we all need/like different things”…. Just as their testimonial covers their EPS issues and negative experiences, many of us can equally share negative feedback on the hostile environment, cultural stereotyping, lack of ethnic diversity and indifference to inappropriate student-peer behaviors, that can occur in what are largely considered "top rated" primary schools. Given that “our perception can equal our reality”, parents should perform their own due-diligence as to the fit of EPS, for their family’s needs.
For this family, EPS is the ideal learning environment for our children, an environment we gladly support with both our money and time.
