    "I was surprised by the review that academics suffer after pre-school. The kindergarten program and beyond uses curriculum literally one full grade ahead of all other area curricula in math, science and reading. It focuses on time tested tools that get the job done. I have a graduate in addition to other children in other grades and their ability to read, write, think and articulate is beyond their peers. My student placed into third year high-school Spanish Honors due to the Spanish program. My student also place into Algebra 2, Trig and all Honors courses in English, Social Studies and Science. The program at East Lake Academy is no doubt rigorous but what is even more profound is that the students are well formed in public speaking, leadership skills, and mostly they KNOW their faith and why they believe what they believe. The students are NOT afraid to serve and they actually lead the charge when called. Let's face it, It is hard work for a parent to support such an education it asks everyone to step up! My money is well spent. There is no secret to success...hard work and love."

    "For the parent that said "preschool is great but academics suffer as the child moves out of preschool" well I assume you have not actually graduated a child from ELA, right ? I usually wouldn't respond to such a bold statement but having graduated my first from East Lake you are misinformed !!! This years class got scholarships to most of their chosen high schools, tested out of freshmen classes, will play on sports teams as freshmen AND my child tested into ALL honors courses at Loyola ! The other local/private schools can't necessarily say that. As for classes are to small....now that everyone is seeing the results of ELA, the lower grades are full with wait lists and the upper grades are getting bigger as the years go on. Frankly my kids love the small classes with strong attention on each student. My graduate is friends with all of the kids in his class ...male and female , there is no division like you usually see in teens in the other schools. Best of all in a small school everyone knows you and your siblings, your parents, even the grandparents ...it's fantastic . I wish every child had the opportunity to attend such an outstanding school."

    "The preschool is great, but the quality of academics suffer as the child moves out of preschool. Average academics compared to surrounding schools. Lacking especially in language arts and creative writing. The classes and the school are so small that some children may feel suffocated or over-analyzed. Huge emphasis on perfect behavior, which can lead to low self esteem for some children. Nice religion program."

    "This school is beyond my wildest dreams ! If I could list everything I could ever want for my children in a place where they will be from ages 4-14 , 10 months out of the year, 5 days a week, and 7 plus hours a day this school surpasses it one million times. I don't even need to talk about it publically because the " proof is in the pudding " my kids and all the East Lake students stand out from the rest ..... the BEST thing I ever did for my kids was send them to ELA !"

    "This is our first year at East Lake Academy. Our son is in PK4 and so far we absolutely LOVE our experience. Our son is cleary challenged academically and feels respected and truly loved by his teachers. This is a great school for the "hands-on parent" who is willing to take an active role and follow through at home with lessons and behavior learned at school. I can't say enough good things about East Lake Academy. I'm so glad we made the decision to give our son such an amazing start in life!"
