    "Eagle has been wonderful for my child. The classes and teachers are excellent. The kids are motivated and truly want to excel. It is how I wish school for me had been. I would HIGHLY recommend it to parents."

    "There is no question that my child is stimulated and engaged by the education he receives at EAGLE. The interesting, challenging, & meaningful curriculum, high quality teachers & administrators, and small class sizes are extremely refreshing after 12 years of experience and frustration with the Madison public schools. It is a shame that MMSD does such a poor job meeting the needs of gifted students, but it is lucky for these students & their families that EAGLE provides another option. The homework load is considerable and I think should be moderated somewhat so that the love of learning is not stifled. I have experienced nothing but a welcoming sense of camaraderie and community amongst both students and parents. I am an involved parent who is frequently present at school; EAGLE students constantly impress me with their respectful behavior and attitudes toward adults as well as fellow students. Overall, EAGLE offers an unmatched educational experience to Madison-area students for whom it is the right fit."

    "EAGLE School is a true hidden gem of Madison; the only school providing national class education for gifted students in our marketplace. Teachers overall are terrific, curriculum is engaging, specialties (art, music, drama, computers) are as strong as the rest of the curriculum, children are held to high expectations and parents are required to be involved. It s affordable compared to other private schools, and income/ethnic diversity is surprisingly wide. Time and time again I see students entering from public schools where the school is failing them, they start EAGLE and they blossom. It s a fabulous thing to see. Children are remarkably accepting and respectful of each other at EAGLE, unlike what many of them experience in public school. EAGLE is not for every family; homework requirements are meaningful and parents need to recognize and support the commitment. The school is too small to offer services for truly special needs students, but can address individual child needs. No school is perfect, but for those times it s not, the school has a wonderful, well-loved guidance counselor who provides an open door for students and parents. We hope you love EAGLE as much as we do!"

    "I'm very very disappointed in what Eagle has become. Under recent leadership, it is no longer a school for Gifted children who actually NEED that sort of environment to thrive. Instead, it's become a place for rich kids to hide out from public school. I can confidently say that more than half of the children here aren't gifted at all. It's disappointing, really. Even more so is the amount of "helicopter parenting" happening, and the bullies it creates. It used to be that gifted children here were allowed to explore their world at their pace; to see it in their own unique way and express their findings. However now, because of this antiquated and alarmingly harmful parenting style so prevalent among Eagle children, kids who stray just the slightest bit from the norm are ousted, bullied, socially downtrodden and made to feel inferior by their fellow overachieving students. The school counselor tries to minimize this, but because it's praised in the home (and $10K is at stake for every kid whose upbringing collides with school policy), there's not much she can do. Teachers here are the shining star; they're fabulous. We'll miss them when we start looking for a new school."

    "EAGLE is wonderful, with classes of 14-15 and subject-specific teachers (e.g. math teachers teach only math; social studies teachers don't teach math). Science is first-rate; solid language and computers; band begins 4th grade. Where else can you find this for <$10K per year? In Chi. it costs twice as much, in NYC, 3x. Classes are ability-grouped; e.g. math sections reflect ability, not age. There isn't extensive, individualized differentiation; all children I know are challenged academically. Informal comparison among families over a long time suggests many kids going K-8 are National Merit Semi-Finalists or better. Typical class MAP scores *average* 95%-ile. Lots of academic extra-curriculars: Math Counts, Math Olympiad, Sci. Olympiad, National History Day, regional writing competition. EAGLE is run leanly, so it's affordable. If you need extensive counseling or tutoring included, it's the wrong place. EAGLE isn't for everyone; expectations and homework levels are high; parent engagement is essential. Schoolwork must be top priority. 20-somethings I know attribute college prep success more to EAGLE than H.S."
