On the topic of test scores, a statement from the Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction acknowledges changes to how the cut scores on the WKCE were tabulated in 2012-13. According to a DPI statement "Due to this change in cut scores, comparisons between 2012-13 performance levels and prior years performance levels will no longer be appropriate for reading and mathematics." (http://oea.dpi.wi.gov/oea_profdesc) As a result, all schools saw dramatic changes in historically consistent student achievement. It is incumbent upon each parent to visit a school and make an informed choice about the right fit for their child. Eastbrook Academy encourages you to visit and see the program in action. EBA also conducts national based standardized testing for all our students. Please visit http://www.eastbrookacademy.org/academics/competition.htm to see how our students are achieving.

This school was very good when my children started going there. There was new leadership and the school completely changed into a new school that I did not even recognize. There was even teachers that were bullying kids. It was not an atmosphere of love. I had to take my children out because of not wanting their spirits crushed. It was a "religious school" but not a christian school if you know what I mean. I am very happy my children do not go there anymore. I hope by the recent comments on here(providing they are not fake and generic). That the school has changed into a more loving positive environment.

The best information I can provide about Eastbrook is that I feel confident that my child will graduate and not only be prepared for college, but prepared to handle many of the challenges facing young people today. I am grateful that we have found a school that provides the Christian foundation we provide to our child at home and that this woven into an excellent cirriculum.

The school is a great place to work and to teach. It is a very rigourous, diverse and loving environment. I love the support of my fellow staff members, and the community we have among parents, students, and staff. The small class sizes allow each student to feel connected and to have their individual questions answered. Christ is at the center of all that we do. I love working in an environment where children from the inner city as well as the suburbs learn, play, and grow up together. i am blessed to be working at the Academy.

Eastbrook Academy has been and still is a God-send to our family... A diverse school with an extremely rigorous academic program that is affordable with small class sizes. What more can a family ask for??? We have three children attending EBA this year, 12th, 4th and 1st grade. Our senior is being given exceptional help w/college guidance, scholarships, class selection, ACT's, etc. The two youngest started in K4 and prayerfully will be able to graduate from EBA as well. Kids leave well prepared for college, the world and life. We've considered relocating to another state, but EBA has always been the deciding factor. Where else in the country can we have all of this wrapped in a Christ centered environment? We've looked and it's next too impossible. I would and have recommended this school to everyone. It is rigorous. It is loving. It is fun. It is Eastbrook...A well rounded academic and social experience. We thank God for this place everyday!!!

Eastbrook Academy has been a wonderful experience for our children. We have had children in the school for 8 years and have seen many changes. Through it all the Academy has held to its founding principles and maintained its standard of excellence. The school has high expectations of students, and has a high opinion of their ability to meet that challenge. The Academy is a Choice school based on a classical education model and anchored by a faith in Christ. We have found that to be a perfect mix for our children's education.

Eastbrook Academy exists to support families from diverse backgrounds in the academic and spiritual development of their children for college preparation and life.The Academy is founded to impart a rigorous classical education in a loving environment committed to Christian living. The teachers and staff definitely live this mission statement out daily in their personal and professional lives. I love the small class sizes and professional treatment. I wouldn't want our 3 children anywhere else!

EBA is a great school full of great teachers, administrators (after a couple of bumpy years) and great students! The school is very academic but the atmosphere is comfortable and not rigid. Eastbrook rocks as a diverse school and, most importantly, a Christian school providing Christian values and examples to our next generation.

If you're willing to work hard and want to succeed, Eastbrook Academy is an excellent school for you. The community between peers and teachers alike is unlike any other--truly wonderful, but as diverse as can be. You will be exposed to many differing opinions, creating great opportunities for healthy debates, knowledge of diversity, and acts of forgiveness. The outstanding academics assuredly prepare students for higher education. Most importantly, students are taught how to think for themselves. Centered on Christ, classes convey valuable information (the what) accompanied with applications (the why). Eastbrook doesn't "dumb down" academics to focus on spirituality, like many Christian schools do; rather, Eastbrook capitalizes on academics because understanding this world (math, science, literature, languages, history, music, art, culture, etc.) points to the greatness of our Lord Jesus. Lessons make you marvel at God's handiwork and intelligent designs, whatever the subject matter. Teachers at all grade levels have high expectations but care deeply about their students and work with them on individual bases. If you want to be challenged, then Eastbrook is a great environment.

I've gone to Eastbrook for over 10 years and I love it!! It has challenged me both academically and spiritually. It's diverse atmosphere has prepared me to deal with people from a variety of spiritual, cultural, and racial backgrounds. The teachers are amazing! Each one works hard to make sure every student understands the material and pushes them to excell beyond their expectations! If you want your child to experience a quality classical education, in a diverse atmosphere, centered on Christ, then I highly recommend Eastbrook!

I think others should know that this school is very strict. It also expects more of a student. If a student does one thing wrong like talk back to a teacher (I know it is bad but just the simplest things) and BAM right in the deans office. i think teachers treat kids poorly.

My daughter just graduated from Eastbrook Academy and I am VERY proud of her and what she accomplished. I know that she is well prepared for college and is strong in her faith and what she believes. The small community is wonderful and encouraging, a very positive atmosphere for teens- with no drugs/alcohol or any serious problems. We love the diversity and the kids in her class all got along great even though they could not have been more different. I know this will help her in life.

I was in Eastbrook Academy's first high school graduating class in 2010, and it is a really strong school academically. I would encourage any parents who want their kids to be successful to send them to Eastbrook. Strong academics. Motivated students & dedicated teachers. Strong sense of community, and not really cliquey or anything. Diverse. No fights. No serious behavior problems. No tuition, if you qualify for the Milwaukee Parental Choice Program. The class sizes are small, so no students fall through the cracks. Like any school, though, EBA has its shortcomings--for better or for worse, the administrators don't believe in tracking, so transfer students are sometimes placed 1 or 2 grade levels below their age group. Also the faculty is quite strict, and they're serious about the evangelical Christian aspect of the school, so you may experience a little tension with faculty if your family's spirituality differs from Eastbrook's, and a few of the teachers think they can tell you how to live your life, which can be annoying. But if the worst thing you can say about a school is parts of it can be annoying, that probably means it's an excellent school.

I've been attending Eastbrook Academy for 4 years, and as for the curriculum, it's great! But the teachers are something else, the teachers talk to you like you're a stupid idiot, and they have condescending attitudes towards students. Some even act racist. The principals don't listen to your comments or concern, and if you do talk to them, they never do anything about your issue. I'll just be glad to leave.

Our sons have been enrolled at Eastbrook Academy from kindergarten through high school. At each juncture (middle school, high school), we compared other schools for academics, diversity, Biblical world view, extracurricular activities, tuition cost, class size, faculty and found Eastbrook Academy excelled in each area. The current senior class has one of the highest ACT averages (29.5) in the area. I give Eastbrook Academy the highest rating.

Eastbrook Academy is a great school that provides three essential elements to help me as a parent raise smart, confident, moral children. First, solid academics are taught well by gifted, nuturing teachers. Second, my children are given individual attention daily, their talents are recognized and encouraged, and their achievements are recognized and celebrated by their teachers and classmates. And finally, Eastbrook Academy uses prayer and Godly principals to direct decisions and disciplinary actions and integrates Christ naturally in curriculum and classroom activities. As a parent, I couldn't imagine a better, safer place for my child to be during the school day.

The school has strong academics, building up extracurricular activities and sports, and offer many opportunities for students. A dynamic often observed with christian schools are alliances with the members of the church and Eastbrook is no exception to this bias. There is no such thing as a perfect school environment, but you have to weigh what is important and what you are willing to deal with to ensure a strong academic and social foundation for your child.

I have been attending Eastbrook Academy since I was in 1st grade, I am now in 10th grade. Eastbrook has been a wonderful experience, with a great community, there are very little problems within the school. The teachers are wonderful people, and intelligent, which makes for good teaching. Going to eastbrook, I am taking AP biology in 10th grade right now, AP Macroeconomics, and my uncle, who is a senior in a milwaukee public school, dropped out of AP Biology in 12th grade. The atmosphere is wonderful, there is great diversity, and a friendly environment overall. I've depended on Eastbrook's community many times in my life, in which I would have had trouble w/o Eastbrook behind me. Walking homeless on the streets for a while I was able to go to one of the Eastbrook family's house and rely on their help. Great School.

My two boys were among the first twenty four kids to form this school. They were students of this school until we left Milwaukee and apart from my church, I felt such a sense of lose when we moved to Miami. They have the best teachers and the best principal. I hope Mrs Hollenbech, MS Griswold and all the other wonderful teachers are still working at this school. I guess you never appreciate what you have until you have lost them. The best school in my books!

Eastbrook Academy is a great school i have been going there since 4th grade and since i have been going there i have been pushed to do better everyday. It also just starting last year had the 8th graders take AP Biology which is a very hard test. EBA is a very good school to pick if a family is looking for a family friendly school

I have been researching schools for a while now since my son will be starting kindergarten in a year. Based on what I saw at EA and heard from other parents, there is just no other school in Milwaukee (public or private) that I would consider for my child. The school is very diverse, affordable (it also accepts choice vouchers) and academically rigorous. It draws students from the city as well as from the suburbs. It is just great.

EBA is a wonderful school and provides a really unique learning experience for the students who attend there. The curriculum is challenging and students do have to work hard, but the children really do surprise us by arriving and meeting the challenging in such an amazing way. The tuition is very affordable and the diversity is amazing is amazing. The school attracts families from the city and all of the surrounding suburbs. My children have attended EBA since kindergarten and they have no desire to be anywhere else.

EBA is truly unique. It is Christ centered, academically excellent, and may be the most ethnically and economically diverse school in the area (or anywhere).

I went to EBA from K5 to 8th grade. I learned a lot and I had a great 2nd grade teacher, but it was very stressful in Middle School with homework. And they don't listen to your comments, concerns, and suggestions.
