This review only discusses the administrative side of the school, not the academic ... So far our experience with this school has been horrible. So much so that we sent our child out of the district for preschool (many of the parents in our current preschool choose to avoid Elizabeth Meyer School as well). As we try to prepare for kindergarten, we are experiencing the same issues we experienced a year ago - disinterested individuals who become hostile when asked simple questions, contradictory information on their website, and no communication from the school to incoming families (even though they claim to do so regularly). They seem to simply avoid all forms of communication or simply do not know how to communicate.
