All teachers are above-average on their teaching and caring. It is sad to know that they only get paid minimum wage. The school itself is disappointing because of an unfair principal.

Among the best middle school in the area after doing much research and excellent community feel.

This school has some stellar teachers who really care. However the principal has proven to be worthless. She does not care about students as demonstrated by the fact that she allows many low performers to be funneled into remedial math classes only to languish there with little to no instruction. ...  Read more

Mrs Dyckman is very discriminatory about kids requiring special ed. She does everything in her power not to accept enrollment of any kids who requires special ed: In our case, she did this by being extremely non-cooperative. When we insisted, she threatened us about taking the issue to the court so ...  Read more

By far my greatest experience I have had during my entire schooling process. The teachers are well educated, connected to one another, and interactive with the students. There is no group exclusions and the school activities really help unify the school. Egan has healthy food products and offer great ...  Read more
