School Reviews

5   9/26/2007
I'm a seventh grader at this school and my brother also attended for 2 years. It is truly an amazing school atmosphere. Lots of after school activities, and sports. The teachers teach from the heart, love the students, and make class fun. The students are all very intellectual, greet everyone with smiles, and love the teachers. The parents are very involved. Mothers and Fathers are involved in the lunch program, school dances and productions, as well as students' homework and over all achievement. I love going to Egan and wouldn't go to another school if I was offered a million dollars(and I do love money). Hope my review was enlightening and helped you with your placement decision for your child.
