Eton School has been our home for the last 8 years and it has been great to see our children grow, being academically challenged and blossom into healthy young adults. As with every (school) life, there are ups & downs but the way the 'developmental challenges' are handled at Eton is comprehensive and involves staff & parents alike to come to a good result. Teamwork is the key and it shows! Educating the whole child is the school's motto and will help the child become a balanced individual.

I am truly shocked to see that there are such stark reviews about Eton School, as I would describe my personal experience with it as incredible. Parents must be committed to the Montessori philosophy to really appreciate the richness of academia here. As an Eton alum, and a mathematics major in college, I have grown to appreciate how complex the pre-elementary education really is. Students are learning about precursor concepts in euclidean and noneuclidean geometries and basic algebra at ages 3-6! Even though there is academic rigor, it's also such a great place for children to learn about exploring many different subjects. I remember, as a pre-schooler, learning an in-depth unit on geology, so comprehensive that even my high school earth sciences class at public school did not cover the details that we had earlier. Eton is a great school with compassionate teachers who are willing to work with families together to nurture the whole child. It's a fantastic approach that every student should have the opportunity to experience.

I am an Eton School alumna, having attended their pre-elementary program and first grade. Though that was several years ago now, as I reflect on my early education, I could not have been more privileged or more fortunate. Many parents seem to question the benefits of a Montessori education or often be unaware of what exactly it entails, which is truly unfortunate. Staff at Eton are committed to carrying on this learning style philosophy, which instills important lessons that I still find that I reach back to today. For example, at Eton, I first learned what independence, responsibility, and compassion were and how amongst my mixed grade levels, these three values bound us together. The teachers are incredible supportive of inquisitive minds, encouraging students to constantly value learning, exploring multiple interests, and think critically. The "whole child" concept has nurtured unexpected skill sets that have lasted me all the way through my top-ten undergraduate institution education. I would recommend Eton School to everyone without hesitation, as it is a phenomenal environment for students and parents, alike.

My daughter attended Eton's three-year pre-elementary program recently. Her father and I really gave this school the benefit of doubts and a good try to the "Montessori philosophy" by keeping our daughter at Eton for the full three years. The end result is very disappointing. At the annual tuition about $15k to $16K a year for three years, my daughter cannot comfortably do math within 10 and her self-doubt lingered after three years of the "developing the whole child" philosophy. Most teachers and caretakers were nurturing, but not insightful to how each child was doing and how parents could help. We suspect a lack of accountability from the teachers by simply hiding behind the "Montessori philosophy" leaving the children to fend for themselves (there is much bullying by the older children in the same classrooms towards the younger aged ones) and wasting precious years of early childhood learning opportunities. It's a crime to charging this amount of tuition, not holding teachers accountable, and leaving the children to "learn" or not learn "on their own pace." This school should be shut down, or at least the pre-elementary program!

As a parent with multiple children at the school I can speak to our experience. The peer mentoring in pre-K and lower elementary, where multiple grades share a class, is a great model. Watching the children grow from being mentored by older students into role models for the younger ones was a joy. The upper grades (4-8) have been academically challenging but not overwhelming. The teachers engage with the children and provide frequent and clear feedback. The school provided assistance for our one child who has dyslexia. The teachers have managed his learning differences amongst his peers commendably. Beyond academics, trips to IslandWood , Nature Bridge, Mountain School, and Washington DC were great (academically and socially) experiences in 4th-8th grades. The addition of Ultimate Frisbee as a team sport added another dimension to an already good focus on physical health. Socially, friendships have extended past the classroom, though this takes effort due to the broad geographic distribution of the student body. There are too many facets to encapsulate in a short review, but consider Eton if you are looking for an intimate, caring, and thoughtful approach to education.

Whatever else Eton may be, it is not a Montessori school. Look for classes with at least a three year age range, students choosing what to do and when to do it (with help from teacher-given lessons), and adults who emphasize whole-child development and not just academic progress.

Isn't that funny when you see the 5 star reviews, you exactly knew who wrote it? I don't know the reviewer whose daughter was kicked out in a week. But you are so lucky! The longer the kids stay in this school, more distorted and depressed their lives become. Good luck to all Eton kids, no matter they are among the group who are treated extremely "good" by the teachers there or "bad", it is hard for them to grow up healthy.

I was reluctant to put my children in private school and even more reluctant to put them in a Montessori school because of bad experiences I've had in the past. My husband had his heart set on it, though, so I agreed to give our oldest two a year at Eton. The social and academic changes in my children were unmistakable. They have thrived and blossomed. Four years later, we've started our fourth child at this school and wouldn't want them to go anywhere else! One of my favorite moments was being out to lunch with my 1st grader and having her explain quarks and subatomic particles to me. We got such looks! The teachers are very approachable, and welcome the parents into the classroom for birthday celebrations, occasional lunches with the children, and Montessori moments (parents can sign up to visit their children in the classroom to see what they've been working on.) The teachers are so patient and communicative with the children, with such good results, that I've found myself adopting many of their methods at home. The new director (he started in 2012) is also very approachable and I think he will do great things with this school. I would highly recommend Eton to anyone who asked!

I am an Eton School alumni. I am currently an upperclassmen at a private school in Seattle where I am extremely happy and challenged. Fortunately, for me the academics at Eton were not very challenging. The teachers at Eton were very accustomed to non-constructively challenging the students, so it was nice for me to challenge the teachers. I realize that this insight makes me look extremely cocky and big-headed; however, from this experience I learned only when the teachers are challenged are the students challenged as well. The academics were decent, but the help from the assistant teachers was phenomenal. They are the true unspoken heroes of the classroom. However, the biggest con at Eton School was the stunted social growth of many students. I refer to this school as a social "jailhouse" because no one ever promoted friendship or amiability. I am extremely grateful because not only am I able to excel at my high school socially but also I am aware of the depressing social scene at Eton school. I still keep in touch with some of the Eton kids today, and it is a shame for me to tell you all that the effects of the stunted social growth are visible.

Eton has been a wonderful experience for us. Moving to the area from the UK we were looking for a school that didn't just offer a 'one size fits all' approach to education. We have 2 very different children who are thriving here. We're confident that wherever in the world we move next, Eton has helped our children develop skills, both academically and emotionally, to prepare them. It is a fabulous school with a challenging yet warm and nurturing environment.

I have 2 sons in Eton. One in 1st grade and one in Pre-K. Both have wonderful experience at Eton. My older was reading before he started school and the teacher kept him challenged. He is never bored with school and it is a pure joy to see him take charge of his own learning! My younger is nothing like his brother. He is very active and less focused than his brother but we are amazed at how well he is doing at school. At 4, he too is reading now and more importantly have so much self confident and self esteem! I can't say enough of the dedication and professionalism of the teachers at Eton. And make no mistake, my boys are no angel but the teachers know how to work with them and build on their strengths.

My 4 year old came home horribly stressed by her experience at Eton. The teachers and staff made it clear that kids are expected to perform at a certain level and when my daughter exhibited some separation anxiety the kicked her out after one week! I asked them to help work with us to get her over this and they flatly said no. We took her to another school who worked with with us and our daughter to help her over come this. It was very clear that Eton was more interested in making money and their academic reputation then actually teaching kids and helping kids learn to be in a social/school setting. Shame.

I have had 2 children attend Eton from grades 1 through 5. Like any school, the parents must get involved with the teachers and staff to ensure that their child is working at his or her full potential. The teachers do an excellent job getting to know each child and their learning styles. They build on the strengths and work on the weaknesses, nurturing a confident, curious and creative student. Another gift of the Montessori method is that the children learn to be very organized and self-motivated. They utilize their planners so that they know what they need to do, when they need to do it, and how to ask for help if necessary. The sense of accomplishment they feel knowing that they have organized and done their own work is priceless. The environment is very respectful - they study and embrace different world cultures and positive ways of resolving conflicts. To my knowledge, there are no bullying issues and each child is made to feel welcome and an integral part of the school community. The school has done an excellent job preparing my children to be compassionate leaders and problem-solvers and for their future educational endeavors.

I withdrew my son after a year because he was 3 and was put in a brand new classroom w/ brand new teachers. Being in a new classroom the older kids (4 and 5 yr olds) did not go through the montesorri experience before thus, I didn't think he was learning as much since the school's model is to have the older kids teach the younger kids. The teachers were new and spoke english as their 2nd language. Both were brand new which I thought that was rather odd since we are paying a lot of $$$--you would expect 1 experienced teacher. The owner/director is not responsive and when I asked for another classroom, she would not allow it so I took him out in AUG. They wouldn't return my deposit even though they have a waiting list and could have filled it since school starts in SEPT.

My daughters aged 14 and 5 attended summer school at Eton. We live in London UK. This was an extremely positive experience for all of us. Dr. Feltin and her staff were fantastic in supporting me acheive the experience I wanted both girls to have. The Montessori approach of Eton with age groupings, enabled each of my children to find and develop their own sense of self. This was difficult for my 14 year old as the emotional demands were so different from school in UK . The emotional lessons of the experince helped her understand that she knows who she is, what she needs and that she must voice these to achieve. The little one loved it and reported to her headmistress that she liked learning for herself. As a mum, I learned how to support their growth in a new way. I strongly recommend the school and the experience.

Not very impressed vis-a-vis the hyped-up image. Academics is great. The environment for social/emotional development is not very strong . Morals are not strongly emphasized. Every child is different and the school could do better by working creatively around obstacles. Bullying for popularity should be curbed. P.S. Not all kids have behavioral and learning problems. And even if they have, a good school is one that will brainstorm and figure out creative solutions to help the child develop to his fullest.

I am an Eton school Alum. I attended Eton School from early childhood development through elementary school. The foundations built in Montessori education can still be seen today when I prepare my studio space here at the Savannah College of Art and Design, where I am pursing my Masters in Architecture and a Masters in Historic Preservation. Eton is strong supportive environment that encouraged me to explore my education on my own terms yet providing excellent structure to ensure as well rounded education. I would highly recommend Eton to any family looking to instill a love of learning at an early age, while unknowingly building in the tools needed to be a successful organized student of life.

The reasons I did not continued with first grade after preschool is the big difference between their philosophy statement and reality. Eton does not foster healthy emotional development and assumes that children should be emotionally stable at age of three while he is facing lots of bullying from bigger kids disguised in leaders. At that age most of small kids are not able to recognize a good leader from a bad one and often time follow the inappropriate role model. Facilitate cooperative learning means letting bigger kids discourage the small ones or letting kids gather in groups during class and chat nonsense without teacher intervention. Facilitate independent learning means let a kid poke paper for three years over and over again. Facilitate teacher learning is not in the curriculum because the teacher assistant may not speak proper English and therefore cannot help with certain tasks.

I ve been with Eton for eight years and it s proved a wonderful environment for my two sons because Eton is providing a custom education. Both of my sons are strong academically but they are different in their individual timeframe in mastering certain skills. They re also different from an emotional development perspective one s quite mature, the other needs emotional encouragement. Each receives exactly what he needs to be a motivated, independent, caring child. The teachers, specialists and even the administrative staff know my children his interests, his friendships, his personality. The children are respected as individuals, appropriately guided along given their mastery of a skill. Everyone gives an extra hug when needed or holds back help when the child needs to try it on his own. Eton is upfront about its mission and philosophy. If you fundamentally agree with it then you ll be very pleased with Eton as I am.

My two children attended Eton School from ages 4 and 6 through ages 12 and 13. I have been so please with their overall development. They love to learn, willingly take on challenges and love school. Eton is a place where parents and teachers can work as a team to help a child reach his or her full potential. My children experienced caring and nurturing teachers and staff at each level. As a parent I will be sad to leave at the end of this year. Our family has felt very much a part of the Eton family throughout our entire time at Eton School.

My child was at Eton for two long years. She does not have any behavioral or learning problems, however, she was stressed out to the point of having no confidence and crying every day after school. The lack of direction/self direction philosophy combined with a major academic push and intense competition really did not work well for her. Though she was doing fine academically, it was clear that emotionally, she was struggling. She has been at a new school for 5 months now and her whole person has vastly improved. She has confidence and friends. I would also add that the parent community at Eton is quite weak. It has a very diverse demographic, which is wonderful, but it is very hard to make connections and feel a part of the school.

I believe that the vastly different impressions of Eton are a result of the extremely variable abilities and styles of the teachers. Our two children had vastly different experiences - one positive and one negative. Unfortunately, the negative experience cost our son his confidence, and the rebuilding process (at another school) has taken some time. Eton is unquestionably focused on academic achievement, despite current educational studies and Maria Montessori's philosophy which support different emphases.

I am a very satisfied parent of the program at Eton. My daughter is in her third year at Eton following two years in a fantastic Montessori school in another state. Before enrolling my daughter here, I did my homework. I visited school after school. I spoke with administrators and visited classrooms. I was familiar with the Montessori philosophy and Eton has delivered nothing but the best for our daughter. She is bright, enthusiastic about school and displays a love of learning that goes on and on. Don't select this school without doing your due diligence. Understand the program. Participate in all informational opportunities for parents. Understand and take part in your child's education. Don't choose Eton without investing yourself into your child's education only to wonder what is going on. It is not traditional. It is not status quo. Your child will benefit if you support the process.

Our daughter is in the pre-elementary program at Eton. I attribute a lot of her recent social growth to the Eton environment and the student/age mix in the classroom. We found her teachers to be very receptive in meeting and partnering with us to resolve any issues. We've found the administration to be very professionally managed, compared to our previous preschool experience - and open to parent feedback and participation at the school. For parents seeking a quality Montessori education for their child, I would recommend their pre-elementary program.

Eton School is a great school for parents who want their children to succeed academically and socially. I have two children at Eton who have been at the school since age three and are now both in the upper elementary division. The teachers are caring and supportive and are very willing to work with a child that does not fit the normal mold taking into account that every child is unique. They also provide additional academic challenges for kids who want to push themselves beyond the average as well as offering many creative afterschool activities. I would recommend Eton to any parent who wants a school where parental interaction is not only welcomed but valued. You will find that it is well worth the cost (which is quite reasonable when compared to many of the area private schools).

Wow, these reviews are almost exactly opposite of one another! It's confusing to me since my son is in his first year (first grade) and is already doing fractions, multiplication, foreign language, science fairs and reading at an accelerated level. I don't blame folks who have kids who struggle at this school, it is challenging. But i know public school wouldn't teach my son the same things he's learning here. His teachers are very approachable and he's happy. I guess it's not for everyone.

Eton is the great school for parents that want to drop their kids off at school early morning and pick them up at night not knowing what the kid was taught.

Eton is not for everyone. For parents who use school in lieu of actual parenting, Eton is the wrong choice. For parents who coddle their children and expect the teachers to be babysitters, Eton is the wrong choice. The teachers here are fair and caring, but they expect you to TRY, and they will help you succeed. Eton is the right choice for kids who can handle adversity. My kid has failed and picked herself back up and succeeded time and time again. Her self confidence grows with each day and her passion for learning is truly blossoming. Most people in this day and age expect to be coddled. But there are a few of us out here who still believe in the value of self-reliance and rising to challenges. For those of us, Eton is the right choice.

A failing school. Owned by the principal, no board of governors.High pupil turnover. Poor classroom management. Classsrooms unbalanced with mostly new students. Low academic standards. Work often not marked. Not child led or teaching the whole child. Little to no communication with parents from teachers or the administration, difficulty to even get teachers to meet with you. Has a frightening 'heads on desk' policy which was used en masse on children without parental knowledge or permission. Don't like it and you'll be told you're the only people to complain and they suggst you go, same if you don't renew, then they keep your money. We just pulled our child out after a terrible almost 2 years in Lower Elementary (3 years in Pre. were fine due to luckily getting a good teacher). Lower Elementary has been a complete waste of money and our very bright child's life. Simply dreadful.

The most non caring administration we have ever come across. Dispite their claims to develop the whole child, that is the farthest thing from their mind. The adminsitration is not accessible or has time for a concerened parent. The school has no PTA like organization and therefore there are no parental involvement or feedback. They emphasize developing a global child but a pass through their library shows that is the last thing in their mind. Security of children is also a big concern for us as we noticed strangers could easily walk into their building without anyone checking on them.

Eton School is a montessori based school. So it's important for parents to take a moment to understand the montessori philosphy and teaching before jumping into the program. Eton school builds confidence and fosters to love of learning spirit. My children are growing into confident learners who are eager to try new things and work independently - which is the goal of Montessori. The Eton teachers are compassionate and are there to foster learning. If they 'appear' to be strict it's because they're motivating children to try things themselves first. The school academics are good - the lessons learned are definitely building blocks for the future. My 7 year old child already knows basic multiplication and my 4 year old child can identify and describe parts of the human body. And at the end of the day, my kids are happy learners.

If your child does anything that the teachers don't care for, it will be considered your problem and you will be told to 'fix it'. They say they educate the whole child, but they lie. They are extremely rigid and uncaring. If your child does well with a strict environment, they will do fine at Eton, but just don't expect any emotional kindness or support from the teachers or administration. The academics are good there... the one possitive I se. They will not hesitate to tell you to find another school and kep your money for the privilege.

Here's the deal with Eton. You, as a parent, have to commit to this school in the same manner that your kid does. The curriculum is tough and expectations are high. My daughter had a tough time at first but now, in her 4th month here, she has really hit her stride and her self-confidence and attitude is soaring. She worked damn hard to get where she is now and now she's not afraid of hard work and is becoming genuinely passionate about the subjects she studies. The net/net with this school is this: if the parents don't provide the support the kid needs, that child will not fare well at Eton. Public school would better as expectations are much lower. I love what Eton is teaching my daughter: the value of hard work, self-confidence and passion for learning.

The facts of business are that it does takes money to pay professionals so that they don't have to take a vow of poverty to teach our children. There is no price tag on the smile on our child's face when she tells us how much she loves school and the joy in learning she has found again Thank you Eton, keep up the good work.

This is our second year at Eton School in the Pre-Elementary program. My two daughters have absolutely thrived in this stimulating Montessori environment. Their teachers are very experienced and wonderful, very nurturing while still guiding the children towards independence in their daily lives. Being in a multi-age classroom means that children can learn from each other and eventually become a leader in their third year. My oldest daughter's confidence has blossomed both in her academic endeavors and in her relationships with her peers. The teachers encourage the parents to have a constant dialog with them regarding their children, they are always available to help support parents and children any way they can. A pre-elementary Montessori classroom is very structured (which surprises many parents) and then children are given a lot of freedom and opportunities to make good choices within that structure: it's just like the real world!

The Eton community has been fabulous for our children and family. We have been there 4 years and have two children enrolled. The academic programs are challenging and rigorous but accomodating to each child's learning style. The teaching staff is dedicated and skilled, respecting what makes each child unique and recognizing what their contribution to the classroom is. The children's individuality and self-esteem is always a top priority. The parent community is as active as each family wants it to be, depending on their level of interest and available time.

My oldest daughter attended Eton for 4 years. Her last year we had a very negative experience and teacher. After reviewing all the other possible remaining teachers, we realized that the school had almost 100% turnover from 1989 when they were a 'Blue Ribbon' school. The other teachers were only marginally better than my daughter s current teacher. It is a Montessori school in name only. All must conform or suffer the consequences. It was a nightmare when the teacher became punitive. Do not confuse academic rigor with learning. These children are stressed but not necessarily healthy. Money absolutely rules and I say that even though my husband and I have been blessed. This is a well run business profit center that happens to teach children. If you want a Montessori School, go find a real one.

Do not send your child here unless they are perfectly well behaved at ALL TIMES. Even at 3 years old. Be aware they do not tell you that half day children will be forced to watch the full day kids eat their lunch, without being able to have a snack themselves. They do not comfort upset children at all. I personally watched them tell a mother that her 3yo had been crying for 'a long time' because she had a potty accident and that they don't respond to children crying and told her they would 'help her when she was done crying'. This sort of behavior is appalling in a 3-6 classroom. Getting into Eton for us meant they kept more than half money, effectively kicked us out and left us with no options for the coming year. Thanks, Eton!

We have had a wonderful experience with ETON. Our son has been there for three years already and the teachers are completely hands on with the daily instruction. Origianlly we were concerned about the montessori aspect of him being placed with kids a lot older than he was. However, his transition has been amazing due to his teachers. He has made a lot of friends and really enjoys learning.

This is an excellent school. Academic standards are high, social consciousness is a priority, and the children are sweet and considerate of each other at all ages. After school progams are extensive and include music, sports, martial arts, chess club...Parents volunteer in the classroom and provide support through auction. Too bad it's not free.

This is a very small school so kids get attention to individual needs and are very well supervised. The academics are very-good-to-excellent. The PE, art, music and science programs lack specialized equipment.

Very good Montessouri school with good teachers. The enrichment program including art, three foreign languages, sport, library is provided. Parent involvement is not required. Parents who want to be involved are involved.

My child went to this school for two years and then we moved away from the area. We are moving back and come with an even greater appreciation for Eton now that we have been elsewhere.

I have gone to Veladare School for one year, and the teachers participation with each indivdual is amazing! The Drama and Music programs that they have are fun, yet educational. The Physical Education is intense, but to an extent. The other parents that are involved with this school are nice, encouraging, and involved with their children.

My oldest child started at this school. After 4 years I transfered her to another school. It is run like a business and has forgotten the nurturing aspect to being a school. I would put my child in public school before I would return to Eton.
