    I used to attend EGE and I had a blast during every grade of fun learning. The teachers were really nice and they always helped students understand learn or makeup work. There was never an overwhelming amount of homework and everything from tests to small assignments helped my grade. Now because of the super education level at EGE I am in advanced classes for math and english. Kids are guaranteed to have a successful and fun experience when they go through this elementary school!
