    I am very impressed with EH my daughter is eager daily to attend school. I transferred her this summer she wasn't happy at previous school. Since our move and attending EH it appears the teachers are bringing out the best in her. The teachers are highly skilled and their encouragment of their students makes the difference. Keep up the encouragement and good work. From a parent that cares!
