It is extremely disheartening to think any parent, or student for that matter, can come on this site and personally attack a teacher, even mentioning her by name. A bit of advice...if you are seriously looking at schools for your child, the best thing that you can do is go out and visit them for yourself. Talk to the administrators, meet some teachers, and observe some of the students. Trust your instincts, and take with a grain of salt the words of the anonymous internet posters.

Had a 4th grade, garden variety, dyslexic kid with little social issues. Was hardly reading at all upon entry. Math abysmal. 3 years later, reading on grade level, math much better. Moved on to a college prep, mainstream private school and has made honor roll last 2 semesters. This has not been easy, EHS is not a magic bullet, this child/parents are/ is motivated. Cannot say enough about EHS and what they've done for our entire family dynamic. We would never be where we are without EHS. Sometimes you have to do art and music on your own to get the meat and potatoes done during school hours. These kids can't possibly learn to read and do math on top of getting art and clubs, sorry parents, that's going to be on you. You have a child with a disability, you can't have everything. Be grateful a place like this exists.

Eagle Hill was a game changer for my son who is dyslexic and ADHD. He was not reading at the end of third grade when he was sent EH . With in 6 months he was reading and truly enjoying it. I no longer had to chase him around the kitchen table to do his homework. He would come home and immediately start his homework. He developed a desire to please his teachers and not disappoint them. In 3 years he matured so much and developed a true love for learning.

With a new head of school in place this year, let's hope that the curriculum that sorely laggs behind any other school is beefed up, and that the "transition" process which is non-existent be finally created. Problem here is after years of little or no science, social studies, language, grammer, English, NO ART or MUSIC or real CLUBS of any sort, these kids are ill prepared to even consider transition, so it become a zero sum game. The "transition" team seems to never know your child and it feels like they throw darts at a board. They don't even tell parents that their transitioning child may need to take the ISEE or even WHAT that means!!! The school was allowed to languish too long under the almost 30 year tenure of the old head, and needs a good dusting off and shaking off. THAT SAID, many if not ALL of the teachers here are truly phenomenal and THEY GET 5 stars, but the school administrators who have stayed too long and let the school stagnate get the 3 stars.

I find the sudden 3 posts on November 15th, which look as if they were written by the same person on the same day, suspect. Like any school, this school has its strengths and weaknesses. Do not send your child to this school expecting that they will perform miracles or really "fix" what is wrong. Rather, it is a respite for a while from the bad experiences in a public or other school. EH is capable of some some remediation, depending on how "severe" your child's individual needs are, but they do not TRULY customize anything to YOUR particular child's needs. Some kids progress, some kids "regress" and should probably have stayed in public or their old or gone to more curriculum vs. remediation based school That said, the teachers are wonderful and my daughter likes every one of them. She is also happier here surrounded by peers more like herself than in a "regular" school.
