I have two children that attend EGES. We are so happy with their overall experiences. The teachers are top notch. There are plenty of opportunities for extra curricular activities. Along with numerous tutorial programs offered for free. I feel very fortunate to have my children in such a wonderful enviornment!!

Elbridge Gale has been our first experience in the public school system. As a parent I consider myself a dedicated partner in our children's academic success and all too critical at times. My son is a gifted, highly energetic challenging child and the teachers and principal has been extremely supportive ...  Read more

This is the best school my son has attended by far. The staff is friendly and helpful, they treat all kids respectfully and the teachers work hard and celebrate academic improvement. My son is happy to go to school. He has no friends because the kids in 5th grade are very clique and can be very unfriendly ...  Read more
