"Eagle Hill literally saved my child–removed her from an environment that left her gasping for breath and created a place where she felt confident and supported enough to take risks and accept challenges.
Within a few short months she went from a child who demonstrated symptoms of severe anxiety to a child who had friends, liked her teachers and advisor and wanted to go to school. To be clear, Eagle Hill is not easy. They expect a great deal from their students, but importantly, they provide them with the tools and strategies and confidence to meet those expectations, and, so importantly, to feel successful. As a family, as a parent, the Eagle Hill community provided us with a place where our struggles and concerns were understood, and where we were able to understood the struggles and concerns of others: a community in the truest sense. The best conversation I had with my daughter a few short months after starting at Eagle Hill was when I asked her what she wanted for Christmas: She responded, “Mom – the only present I want is to be able to go to Eagle Hill next year.” A long way for child who had spent much of second grade hiding under her desk."
OLIVER - 2016 UPPER SCHOOL GRADUATE
"For our child, Eagle Hill was a life raft. Once we found Eagle Hill, it was clearly the perfect place for him. The teachers at Eagle Hill respected and understood Oliver for who he was as a learner. Year by year we watched Oliver blossom into a more confident young man who understands his learning needs and is driven to be successful. The relief we felt knowing Eagle Hill had Oliver’s best interests at heart every day, knowing when to hold back and when to push him to achieve a higher level, making him feel secure and amazing about his accomplishments, is beyond words. Eagle Hill helped create who he is today–a secure self-advocating young man who enjoys school and learning."
"'Life changing' is how we would describe Lexi's four years at Eagle Hill. She started at Eagle Hill as a shy, quiet girl who always sat in the back of the class and was too unsure of herself to ask for help. Fast forward four years later and she has become confident, talkative, outgoing and her own self-advocate. She is on grade level in all her classes. The small class size and individualized attention at Eagle Hill were the perfect environment for her to spread her wings, and the amazing teachers at EHS helped teach Lexi the way she needed to learn. She is now going to a mainstream, rigorous school. We could not thank Eagle Hill enough for all it did for our daughter."
LUKE - 2017 UPPER SCHOOL GRADUATE
"Luke cried the whole way to Eagle Hill for his first visit day, terrified at the idea of starting a new school. But, a few hours later, he bounded out to the car, homework folder in hand, and announced, “I want to go to Eagle Hill School! Eagle Hill School is where I belong.” And, it was! Eagle Hill has changed our lives immeasurably. As educators, we, his parents, knew the struggles he had been facing at school, and that we had hit the jackpot.
It was not easy; his workload grew each year as he became more academically competent, but with the guidance of his teachers, advisors, and counselor, Luke has learned to manage his workload and to self-advocate better than we could have hoped. Students who understand their own learning profiles have the best chance at directing and benefitting from their educations; this quality cannot be underestimated. Equally importantly, EHS gave Luke a place to flourish in athletic and leadership roles; his assured self-confidence is a testament to both the tireless dedication of the deeply caring EHS staff and the school’s heavily-researched, whole-student approach to instruction.
Our family has been blessed to have been a part of Eagle Hill; we will be forever grateful for the strong, confident, young man Luke has become and for all the places he’ll go from here."
"Vincent arrived at Eagle Hill a tentative, shy, anxious, and self-conscious boy. He was entering grade 5, reading at a grade 1 level. As parents, we left no stone unturned. We tried every tutor, therapy, and program we could find to help our son, but to no avail. We were desperate and then we found Eagle Hill School - it was a beacon of hope!
EHS focused on the “whole child” to meet Vincent's academic, social, and emotional needs. They created attainable goals with Vincent, measured and modified them constantly and taught him real life strategies to help him learn successfully.
Vincent grew leaps and bounds at Eagle Hill School to become his true self. We were supported as a family the entire time he attended. Vincent walked off the EHS campus a confident, vivacious, happy, charming, articulate, compassionate, and successful young man. We are eternally grateful to Eagle Hill's teachers and staff for bringing our son back to life!"
"The individualized program that EHS created for our son helped him to become the confident young man he is today. He was struggling with reading and had difficulty staying focused. At the end of his first year, he was reading at grade level! Wow! His teachers, the school’s philosophy, and his individualized curriculum made all the difference!
Eagle Hill School really changed all of our lives, not just our son’s. He was frustrated because he could not express himself well and because he felt different around other “typical” children. Because of EHS he is a confident, expressive young man that enjoys his friends, reading and acting. Eagle Hill School made all the difference. We love EHS and are forever grateful to them!"
