Teachers work hard and my child has made tremendous improvements in her writing. Very pleased with EVG.

School has many issues. Regular children are burdened with children with social and behavioral issues. Many children are below one grade level in class. School masks this deficiency by making students prepare for NJASK all year long. Not a lot of worldly learning, only by the books. Parents are ...  Read more

If your child is gifted, EVG is not the school for him/her. The school administration is excellent except for the curriculum coordinator. The curriculum is tailored to fit slow learners.
