School Reviews

5   3/12/2020
I went to Echo Lake from 2010 to 2015, and I had a lot of fun. It's a really big school with two floors, which a lot of other elementary schools don't have. The teachers were all so nice, and I remember always looking forward to going to school. I especially liked the art and music departments. They were so, so fun! Lastly, I was in advanced classes in fourth and fifth grade, which helped me get into Moody, an IB specialty school, and now I go to Godwin for the Medical Center. I just wanted to say I really liked Echo Lake and I guess I wrote this review because I miss it so much? Im not sure.
