    "Disappointing. We came to this school with high hopes 3 years ago, but it just doesn't meet up to the standards of other private (and public) schools in the area. While El Dorado claims to teach a grade level ahead, a lot of kids just aren't ready for it, so they have to simplify the curriculum to keep everyone on the same page. A friend of mine has a child in a very academic charter school, and they are doing more challenging work than my El Dorado student. Another friend pulled her child from El Dorado and moved him into a gifted program at the local public school, and she said her child is learning more there. After hearing this feedback from my friends, I started looking into other schools as well. We found another private school, and realized that their curriculum is leaps and bounds above El Dorado. You might feel like your kid is at the top of their class at El Dorado, but that's only because there are so few students. You are essentially paying for a private school, but getting a public school education. I would advise anyone to do some thorough research before enrolling at this school."

    "El Dorado has been a great school for our children. You can really tell that Mrs. McDermott and her staff care about the students. The academics are outstanding, and we love the atmosphere on campus. My oldest son is working two grade levels ahead in math, and we love the fact that his reading and writing has flourished since we came to El Dorado. Our daughter is excited every day for preschool and is already reading. Super school!"

    "El Dorado is a fantastic school! Strong academics, excellent teachers and administration, and caring atmosphere! Always has been during our seven years (and counting!) at this school!"

    "If you're looking for a creative, loving atmosphere, you've come to the wrong school. The teachers are nice, but they run under the direction of the principal, who runs this school all wrong. This school gives out disciplinary warnings that they call infractions, and the students receive them for every little thing. I would agree if they gave out infractions for hitting, pushing, bullying, etc. but instead they are given out for every minor mishap. Kids at El Dorado receive infractions for reasons as simple as getting up during lunch time, forgetting to put on their jacket at recess, or not raising their hand. It is demoralizing, and it brings down the children's self esteem by being scrutinized over every little thing. Aside from that, the campus lacks upgrades and the enrollment shrinks drastically in the upper grades. My daughter used to love school, and now she never wants to go. We will be leaving El Dorado next year. Definitely do your research before enrolling in this school."

    "We are ecstatic to be a part of the El Dorado family! The smaller class sizes, challenging academics, and family feel is phenomenal. Coming from a larger school where they were more like just a number, the individual attention our sons receive is outstanding. Not only from their regular teachers, but even everyone in the front office, lunch counter, and other areas of the school knows who they are and care for them. I would highly recommend any family to check out this school. We really believe there is not another school like it!"
