    "This school has far exceeded my expectations in education, and the principal as well as the teachers are in the highest echelon of their profession. My child has excelled in every aspect since being at the academy, which I credit to the superior teachers and staff. They truly care about the children. It saddens me that the negative comment was made about "unruly" children and discipline issues, it is far from the truth, I would only attribute such comments from the parents of "unruly" children who were not sided with in discipline issues. The families at our school are committed, involved, and the very best!"

    "EPJA is, by far, one of the strongest Jewish day schools in the country. It's the whole package -- strong and highly organized leadership, teachers and academics in a nurturing environment that fosters creativity, curiosity and a love of learning. Our daughter attended elementary school at EPJA, and it was positively one of the best experiences of her young life. Our family moved to the east coast last year and our daughter transferred seamlessly into a larger and well-established Jewish day school near Philadelphia. The excellent Jewish and secular educations she received at EPJA more than prepared her for this transition, and she has continued to flourish. Children who have the opportunity to attend EPJA are very fortunate."

    "We transferred to the EPJA from a public school in El Paso. We wanted a better academic alternative and found that and more. This school has a heart and soul. Children from 1st to 8th interact in a caring and respectful way, clearly living the Jewish values that are infused throughout the program. Graduates do exceeding well in high school. There is a list in the hallway of the elite colleges the students go on to attend. It is a challenging curriculum, including Hebrew and Spanish in the upper grades. The teachers, Head of School and staff are remarkable. We are very happy."

    "Is it possible to put 0 stars? The principle does not care for the children and will not deal with problems. This has caused the only commited families to leave. Do not ruin your childs eduction by going here. Children are wild and unruly. The principal would rather close the school than deal with problems. A sad disappointment. All other comments are out of date and small class size can mean 1 child per grade."

    "Reply to May 12, 2008 posting: As a grandparent, many of your points regarding EPJA are valid. Although many parents are extremely involved in the future course of the school, students of these parents also have benefits that uninvolved parents do not have. Parents in public school settings do not have this control, nor do they in other area private schools. In essence, the board of directors is controlling much of the school. Yes, the new principal works very hard, but it has become a day care, which interrupts and affects day to day learning. This is a business, not a day care. The class of 2007 was an exceptional class, but it would be interesting to see ratings of the 2008 and future classes as a comparison. Strong secular does not make up for weak Judaics. Many changes need to be make EPJA the school El Paso needs."
