Our children loved it. The academics are challenging, the extras are awesome (art, music, technology, Hebrew) and the administration is very approachable. Any problems that we observed were either due to growing pains (it's a newly public school, and there are numerous new charters experiencing the same issues) or due to the school being anchored to the JCC which infringes upon the school and their students. IE. elderly JCC members complaining about children communicating during their lunch, and demanding the children remain silent throughout the entire lunch period. Limited size due to being anchored in to the JCC (this makes growth difficult if not impossible.). Pushing passover candy sales - that was a bit awkward when most of the people who might have bought the candy aren't Jewish and an office employee being verbally aggressive to a child who had brought in valentines cards (this is part of the growing pains of transitioning from private Jewish to public EO) The positives:your children are truly loved by teachers. The parents were awesome. the academics are challenging. Its a very safe environment. They have a zero tolerance for bullying and address it immediately.

We had the worst experience: If you do not share the culture of most students at this place, this school is not for your kids and your family. My kid was ignored, and treated like a ghost. My child said that it is better to be insulted and punched by your peers than to be treated as if one does not exist. Teachers know this situation but their answer is: sorry, the former students of the school have known each other for a long time and they stick together.

I have two children at EKA. Academically, the school is solid and has excellent teachers. As mentioned in the previous post, Mrs. Klug is exceptional. My oldest had the good fortune of being her student. The downside of the school is the abusive behaviors the students exhibit toward each other. I regularly hear reports from my two of verbal abuses among students that shock me. For this reason I am considering pulling my two kids once the oldest reaches middle school.

My son is a 3rd grader at EKA and We Love it. Mrs. Klug is a wonderful teacher who treates each of the children like her own. There is a strong community with a school so small but even though we started late we felt welcome from the begining. If you are looking for a school with high academic standard and a jewish backing this is it.

A small K-8th Grade school with tremendous heart and excellent teacher experience & student ratios. Strong parent involvement, close nurturing environment in both general and Jewish studies in a quality modern facility boasting library, computer labs, gym, theatre, pool, tennis, and additional extracurricular activities. Students in uniforms, are taught manners, pride, self confidence, strong language skills, and are offered more electives than there public school counterparts. Tuition assistance is provided to +40% of families, student teacher ratios average 7:1, with no classes over 17 students. Teachers are well experienced, come from public and private schools and demonstrate a strong desire to teach and be apart of each of their students lives and learning experiences. School holds oratory and spelling competitions, has a student government, has indepth reading/speaking/writing instruction in foreign languages (Hebrew) and students are taught how to be good citizens through community service. A great place for sure.

This is an outstanding private school in San Antonio which offers a strong academic curriculum in a nurturing, supportive environment that promotes independent thinking, creativity and awareness of the world. The EKA offers the students a well balanced curriculum which includes music, art, field trips, language, computer and the dual curriculum of Hebrew and Judaic studies. The students from K-8 are enthusiastic about learning and go on from the EKA to succeed in area high schools, yeshivas, and ultimately graduate in the top of their classes. Definitely consider this school as an exciting educational environment for your children.
