10 Parent Reviews for Elmwood-franklin School

EFS is not as good as I had hoped. I sent my kid from public to private and didn't see much of a difference. Class sizes are the same, teachers are nice but mediocre, and parents are very cliquish. Tuitiion is too high and I'm certainly not getting what I paid for.

I have 2 children(1 in upper school and 1 in lower school) that attend the Elmwood Franklin School and I could not be happier. My children are constantly engaged in their education, and love to go to school everyday. The school faculty is second to none. They care about the education of each child ...  Read more

The lower school is decent. However, the middle school does not deliver. The students leave EFS to write, quite frankly, like students two grades younger. In addition, certain teachers are rude towards students (although some teachers have redeeming qualities). Elmwood students, ultimately, do not "think ...  Read more

So far my daughter is only finishing the prep program at Elmwood Franklin, but I couldn't be more pleased with the quality of the program, and my husband and I enrolled her with very high expectations. It is a rarity when you find a Kindergarten teacher who will actually state that 5 year old students ...  Read more

My child is entering kindergarten and beginning her second year at this amazing institution. She is entering kindergarten a reader! A reader who corrects her 8 year old cousin's reading! I understand that among her classmates, this is not unusual. I can attribute this feat to her Prep I (preschool) ...  Read more

My 4th, 5th and 6th child of a total of six are presently in this school, while the others have finished. This is a spectacular school, under the visionary leadership of a brilliant headmaster, with dual doctorates from Harvard. Children are developed as whole people. There is a strong emphasis on ...  Read more

This is a progressive independent school with outstanding quality education prek-8. I have been involved with the school for 6 years. Incredible parent teacher involvement and respects the needs of each child.
