I am so glad that we chose eagle River elementary and able to get into the optional program. Teachers have connected with my kids and they do their jobs well. I can see rapid educational progress in my kids and that reflects well on their teachers. The principal is a joy to talk with and she is very respectful to children and talk to them on their level. Every teacher we have encountered from the librarian, gym teacher, music teacher, etc. has been extraordinary. I highly recommend this school!
