This school is wonderful if you happen to have a typical little boy or girl. The teachers are friendly, the atmosphere is warm ,and the school is beautiful. Unfortunately this does not apply to their 'expertise', if it can be termed that, with working with special needs children. The Autism program is very poorly run. It is unfortunate as it has the potential to be great. But the aides and the teacher have very minimal training and my child has suffered because of it. Programs that stay the same for months on end, excuses with no follow through, horrible behaviors that cannot be addressed simply because the people who should lack the know how. I would suggest staying where you are if you have a special needs child for the ECLC has nothing to offer autistic children.

This is my son's second year here and it has been great. He has been making great strides and I am really impressed with the program that they have for special needs kids. My only complaint is that the Fund Raising events are not handled well and causes embarassment to the seller when they fail to deliver within a specified time frame.

My daughter attends this school and I am very pleased with the progress she has made! Her teacher keeps me posted on her progress and anytime I have a question I get a timely response. I am proud to say my child attends this school!

My son goes has kindegarten here and although getting him to go every morning is tough he always says he had fun when he gets home. His teachers seem to care and he's reading rather well which tells me they know what they are doing. The school does try to involve the families in after school events but they end up being fairly mismanaged and not living up to the hype given them.

This school has only been open a few short year's and it show's. They do not have it together. They know nothing about children with specail needs or Autism. I don't know how they get themselves dressed in the morning, let alone teach our children.

Community ratings and reviews do not represent the views of GreatSchools nor does GreatSchools check their accuracy or verify the reviewers' identities. Use your discretion when evaluating these reviews.

About these ratings

The Community Rating is the school’s average rating from its community members (e.g., parents, students, and school staff). The highest possible rating is five stars; the lowest is one star.

Oops! We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Public and charter school test scores for most states come from the state Department of Education. The most common reasons we might not have this data are either that not enough students took the test or that the school was recently opened, and its scores have not yet been reported.

What is the GreatSchools Rating?

The GreatSchools rating is a simple tool for parents to compare schools based on test scores, student academic growth, and college readiness. It compares schools across the state, where the highest rated schools in the state are designated as “Above Average” and the lowest “Below Average.” It is designed to be a starting point to help parents make baseline comparisons. We always advise parents to visit the school and consider other information on school performance and programs, as well as consider their child's and family's needs as part of the school selection process.
