We love Elizabeth Academy. We love the school, the teachers... the Montessori approach and the benefits our children get from Inclusion. Every child has special needs... because we are all individuals.
The Elizabeth Academy has been a great place for both my "normal" developing daughter and my son that has verbal apraxia. The teachers are loving, very educated and passionate about their jobs. This is a great place for children to learn.
Elizabeth Academy is an awesome school because it focuses so much attention on the child. Their model of integrating special needs children in the classroom is remarkable and adds to the non-educational education of both non-special needs and special needs students. Their constant efforts to teach respect for others to the students is a value all schools could benefit from. The facilities are top notch! I'm very grateful to have my children as students at Elizabeth Academy.
Great child to teacher ratio. Not only is my daughter receiving a great, Pre-K education, she is also learning great life skills and responsibility, she is taught to prepare snacks, clean up and serve others. Elizabeth academy is an amazing first step in her education.
This has been the greatest decision we ever made. My daughter that was born with Down syndrome. She is 9 years old and has gross and fine motor skills delays but her biggest challenge is a speech delay. Elizabeth academy provides speech services and also music therapy. This has benefited our daughter in many ways, verbally, emotionally and physically. We had a little hesitation by not knowing how she would respond to the difference type of education. The staff is fabulous. They all know her and greet her. They care about her well being and are always changing things right away when she seems to show signs of regression. She loves it, we love it. Best decision we ever made.
As an education professional with over 25 years of experience, I can honestly say that Elizabeth Academy is setting the standard for schools in Utah and across the nation. Everything about Elizabeth Academy...from the state of the art facility, to the highly qualified teaching staff, to the thoughtfully integrated art experiences, is top notch. The inclusive aspect of the school benefits all students, and the services are provided to ensure that all of the students' needs are met. At Elizabeth Academy, the children are respected and each student is guided to reach his or her full potential. On top of that, Elizabeth Academy students LOVE school!
I can't imagine our children attending any other school. Our son and daughter have learned so much at Elizabeth Academy, but most of all, we see their growing confidence and independence. The Elizabeth Academy has given them a foundation for self-directed learning that we believe will always frame their outlook on life.
Elizabeth Academy is so wonderful! My kids are so happy to go to school each day and each of their teachers have such love and respect for the kids. I wasn't sold on Montessori at first but, honestly wouldn't have my kids learn any other way!! Inclusion is the way to go. It has taught much more than just patients but what friendships are all about. We are all the same yet so different. Love this amazing school!!
I have two grandchildren attending Elizabeth Academy and they both have excelled beyond expectations. They love learning, and their teachers; and the environment with students of all abilities (mentally and physically) together in one classroom has made them more aware and more compassionate toward others. The Montessori method of teaching and learning has been a great benefit to them.
My Children's school is amazing! Not only is the teacher to student ratio amazing but the teachers really care about what level my child is on and helping them onto that next level along with the help of other peers in their classroom. Montessori teaching is really amazing.
My daughter was badly bullied at her last private school (by the students AND the teachers). I suspect this was due to her high-functioining autism & resulting inability to relate to kiddos her own age. It got so bad that my daughter's therapist finally recommended that we pull her out of school before the year ended, so she wouldn't have to suffer anymore. Elizabeth Academy is different -- the kiddos in my daughter's class work daily on being accepting of others with special needs. This has greatly improved my daughter's self-image. This is not to say that there are never any problems between the children, but any issues are promptly addressed, & the children are encouraged to handle it among themselves, with the gentle guidance of the 3 amazing classroom teachers!! Thanks Elizabeth Academy for having the guts to approach things differently, for the sake of our special kiddos!!
the Elizabeth academy is the best school for children's development hands down because the teachers truly care for the students and, help each other to develop the curriculum for the specific child as a team thus involving a personalized panel of experts for every student. Other public schools are inadequate next to this school!!
The Elizabeth Academy is amazing. It's a leading edge Montessori with the best teachers and staff. My Daughter has flourished with there style and care.
This is an incredible school. Such diverse and rich learning opportunities are provided for students from all walks of life. This is a unique learning environment that caters to the needs of every student, and further provides a challenging curriculum that is years ahead of what would be seen in public schools.
I love working at Elizabeth Academy! Our facility is absolutely beautiful and we have a highly dedicated, very intelligent and talented staff who love what they do and are passionate about the mission of the school.
The dedication from all staff at Elizabeth Academy could not be com paired to anything else. I have two children that attend EA and beam each day coming and going to school. From academics to the arts I could not be more thrilled that EA is even a possibility for all children!
I love this school. My daughter is incredibly happy and loves the incorporation of dance, art and music to teach science and math.
Elizabeth Academy is an excellent school - what makes it so are the dedicated and passionate teachers and their constant wish to learn, adapt and improve to the benefit of our children. My five year old reads well above grade level and does math well beyond Kindergarten - probably more in line with my nephew who is in the second grade....I love the approach where students learn to be leaders, mentors and community-oriented.
It's a great school and I would highly recommend it! My daughter has been going to the school for two years and will go next year. I like the newly renovated school. Three teachers teach 20 students in her class, which is a very good teacher-student ratio. No other Montessori school has that good ratio. She enjoys learning through the methods and curriculum and is way ahead comparing with the same age group. She loves the school and her teachers very much! The tuition is high but it's worth it!
Elizabeth Academy has a wonderful approach to teaching children. They truly follow the Montessori concept. I love that this school teaches children academic, social, self esteem and coping skills while in a positive environment. My son goes and comes from the school happy almost every single day. I could not ask for a better education and situation for him. Thank you Elizabeth Academy!
