Grades: 1-12

About the School: At ECS we believe that there is no "one size fits all" in education. We focus on the humanization of learning -- that is, our curriculum for grades 1-12 is uniquely tailored with the individual student in mind. Each student benefits from a personalized educational plan that caters to his or her needs, interests and abilities. Our students are encouraged to challenge themselves by actively participating in the learning process. Instead of giving up because of what they do not know, they learn to ask themselves what they do know. When their first reaction is toward success rather than failure, they can then reach their highest level of academic achievement.
