EAWR is a great school. I have 2 currently attending, both sophomores, and what I personally notice about this school is their support of the students. When a kid is excelling at something even if it is a non-school related activity, the staff not only encourages them, but seems to take pride in the student like they would their own child. Thank you Ms. Robinson and all of the staff at EAWR!
