The people are welcoming, gifted, passionate about education and children, and faithful. The programs are challenging and dynamic. The families are a blessing to the staff and the kids. The partnership between the families and the school is strong and active. I am blessed to serve here and to have had a child receive an excellent education here!
EGL gives the children the opportunity to learn in a way that recognizes and builds on their learning style, intelligence, and God-given talent. This is accomplished through diagnosis and careful planning by the classroom teacher providing enrichment and remedial experiences for students.
I was a student at this school for several years, as did my siblings and some friends; however, we transferred out to an adjacent public school district due to the lack of gifted & talented courses and offerings, particularly in the STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) arena. While the school did a good job in maintaining small class sizes and a safe school setting, the STEM offerings at the school, particularly for math and science coursework, were significantly below average compared to adjacent districts like Elmbrook, Wauwatosa and New Berlin. If you have a gifted and talented child, or a child who needs special courses or offerings, this school may not be a good fit in meeting your sons/daughters needs.
