    "We have just finished our 7th year at El Dorado with both children having started in the preschool program. I honestly feel that we could not be happier at any other school! My oldest just finished 4th and the year was amazing!! He learned so much this year including an incredible improvement in his spelling, writing and composition. The reading and composition specialist at the school is absolutely amazing! And she has taught them how to utilize the iPads to create essays and create books. My son said writing used to be his least favorite subject but it now one of his favorite! The school has also recently implemented a math advanced placement program so the students that excel at math are offered the opportunity to work as far as a year ahead- which is actually two years ahead of their actual grade because the entire school works a year ahead in math. So many great things to say about each and every teacher! The staff is very very caring and I have seen time and again, the teachers go above and beyond to help each student succeed. I highly recommend El Dorado!"

    "We are thrilled with El Dorado Private School! Our son has grown leaps and bounds over the past four years, both socially and academically. We love the smaller class sizes. My son has learned to play the violin and trumpet as part of his music class. As a fifth grader, he is in a math class that is working from Saxon's 7th grade book. My son loves doing his research projects on his school issued iPad. The introduction of the iPads last year has turned my son into a great writer. Before the iPads, he did not enjoy writing. But now with all of the new, exciting ways he is being introduced to writing, he loves it! El Dorado definitely challenges my son each and every day!"

    "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!"
