    "HOW FORTUNATE THAT MY GRANDCHILDREN ARE IN THIS CHARTER SCHOOL. INDIVIDUAL NEEDS AND INTERESTS ARE ADDRESSED AS THEY EXPAND THEIR MINDS AND LEARN TO BE PART OF A COMMUNITY."

    "Eagle Peak is the main reason that our family still lives in Contra Costa County! It is the very best place for our children to attend school. The education is superb, the teachers caring and attentive to the individual needs and learning styles of each student. One size does NOT fit all, and EPMS certainly understands this. Both of my boys would have been labelled as "behind" in traditional public school, but at EPMS they were able to go at their own pace and develop a true love of learning. Isn't developing a passion for learning what it's all about? They are now thriving, and the oldest well above grade level now. The community spirit is phenomenal, and the principal is passionate about her job and love of the school, children, and community. We are so grateful to be a part of EPMS. It's the essence of what a charter school should be."

    "I have 2 children at Eagle Peak and am so grateful that this amazing school exists and that my children get to spend each day there. The principal puts her whole heart and soul into each child, as do the teachers. Every child is truly honored for who they are. Not to forget about the academics. I am always amazed to see all the things my children are learning and how much they love going to school! Thanks Eagle Peak!!!"

    "This is a fantastic school! The Montessori philosophy of this school is right in line with our philosophy at home. We wanted a school that would encourage independence, self initiative and self confidence. Not to mention the support system amongst all the teachers, staff and parents is tremendous and wonderful. We are so thrilled to have found this school."

    "EPMS is a wonderful school with amazing teacher involvement, outstanding parent support, children who love their community and work to improve all aspects of their lives. EPMS combines the best of the Montessori Philosophy in the framework of the PUBLIC school system. Remember, this is an anomaly, a charter school dedicated to a specific philosophy of community, learning and life skills in the bureaucracy of a State school system. Now the Montessori Philosophy and paths may not be for everyone. Those seeking a "pure" Montessori elementary school will not find it, as EPMS works in the frame work of public school. Those searching for an alternative to traditional Public Schools may not be happy, as success in Montessori does require a unique mindset from both the child and parents. The teachers of EMPS are dedicated to their field and students. The Principle, Ms. Hammons, speaks at the American Montessori Conference in S.F. every year. The entire school takes one day off, so the teachers may attend up to 3 days of workshops & seminars, then bring new knowledge and insight back to EPMS. How many other Public schools have such an investment from their teachers?"
