My wife and I were lucky to discover this school. Our children were in the "new" LAUSD school. Both classes had approximately 30 children. The LAUSD teacher's primary job was discipline and not teaching or helping good kids thrive. Egremont not only has a solid curriculum, emphasizing reading, writing
... Read more and math, but also has music, science, art and computers. The teachers work with the kids and the parents to get each child to a high level of learning. If your child falls behind, the Egremont teachers provide after school tutoring at no additional charge! We have been at other private schools, and never have encountered such dedication to students. As to the complaints, any parent that wishes to help and/or participate in the school is not only invited but actually asked to do so. The complaining parents are the ones that put no time into their children's education and expect the other parents to take care of everything. Like anything else in life, you get out of something that which you put in. The school is small, but for elementary age children, that is a huge plus. Read less

When we interviewed the school years ago, we were told many lies, one of them being that they were in the process of building a middle school. Jump ahead a few years...no middle school and no plans for one. We were also told they had specialty classes. When our child first started, the only specialty
... Read more class was Spanish. Tuition increases every year, yet the number of students diminishes. There are *maybe* 100 kids in the entire school. 6 in the 5th grade. How does this prepare the kids for the real world and how does this allow them to have diversity in their friendships? The school is run by a few people, one being the Principal. Parents have no say in anything. If your child is bullied, they shrug it off. One teacher even falsely accuses kids of acting out when that's really not what happened. We took our child out of this "school" and found that LAUSD schools are more advanced academically. So we basically have been paying $15,000 a year for what? Plus, the administration flat out lies. They charge you for everything, even make you buy your own school supplies. LAUSD provides supplies. For $15,000 they can give my kid a notebook and some pencils. Avoid Egremont at all costs.

Egrmeont is the best school ever!! You won't find a better elementary school for miles and miles and miles away. The staff/teachers at Egremont are so dedicated to help everybody out.

The prinicples at Egremont are so dedicated that they help out at school, but they also help out in the community. I LOVE EGREMONT!!!!!!!!!!!! Read less

Egremont is a superb school. I read some of the negative reviews, & I have to say, "Consider the source." When parents say that they had to pull their child out mid year, just remember, there are 2 sides to every story. Egremont works hard to allay any concerns a family may have.Egremont is a safe &
... Read more caring place with a terrific nurse. Everyone's treated like family. All work together to benefit the child. Dissolving the PTA was a good decision. Many parents were "left out" in wanting to help plan events.That's why committees evolved so all could participate. When it was run by the PTA, many parents who wanted to participate were not allowed in, like it was some special social club. Now everyone has an equal chance to really enhance and create wonderful events at Egremont. You couldn't ask for better teachers, staff, and administrators. You can see there is mutual respect and all get along very well. When you have happy people working at a school, it carries over to the classroom. Read less

I'm surprised to see a negative review. My daughter is in preschool and I love this school. I had my daughter at Rocky Peak before and pulled her out after 4 weeks, they were amazingly cold. Egremont is warm and loving. It's not easy to just drop your child off in someone else's hands and I feel complete
... Read more peace with her at Egremont all day long. My daughter especially loves coach Brenda and her art teacher Mrs. Kahn. My husband and I did not intend for our daughter to go to private school, we can't really afford it, we enrolled her just for preschool so we could work but after our experience just this first year she's going to be an Egremont kid for life. She loves her friends, teachers and environment at Egremont - that is priceless to me. I also want to comment on the difference in parents, I hesitated with private school because of the type of privileged kids I pictured my daughter possibly feeling inferior to later on because mom and dad don't drive a range rover. That's not the case. This school is as diverse as it can be and very down to earth. We are sincerely happy here. Read less

This school is not worth the cost! Beware, ask a lot of questions! There maybe specialty classes but because they are not properly staffed your spanish teacher is usually a sub, your science teacher also teaches 5th grade. The principle/Director/part- 5th grade teacher/board of director member, is wearing
... Read more too many hats. Our family could no longer continue to give our money away to this school to participate in this experimental period. This may have been a great school at one time and may be an adequate school in the next 5 years BUT that is of no benefit to our children. My advice, there are many different choices for schools in the valley, take the time to tour THEM ALL, ask about everything from the teacher turn over to the length of time the custodial crew has been employed at the school. Leave no stone unturned. These are our children and if you are going to spend this kind of money on their education you should be getting piece of mind and your money's worth. They pride themselves on the 76years of the school but its really more like 2-3 years of experience of being in charge. Change is good, if you are in pre-school & have the time to ride it out, you MIGHT be happy. Read less

Egremont is an excellent school on many levels. It is a safe environment, the teachers are very caring, nuturing, but also provide a challenging education with state of the art technology. There are speciality teachers in additon to the classroom teachers. I like the fact that the administration

At Egremont, the administrators really know how to run a school properly and know what the children need to receive a "whole" education." I also like the fact that the classroom sizes are small so the teachers really get to know their students' needs. I also think Egremont is competitively priced as far as their tuition. Read less
